MLS ON TSN delivers exclusive coverage of the transformed Toronto FC (TFC), as their highly-touted off-season acquisitions – including former Barclays Premier League striker Jermain Defoe, American international Michael Bradley, Brazilians Gilberto and Júlio César, and returning hometown star Dwayne De Rosario – kick off the team's season opener when TFC takes on Seattle Sounders FC this Saturday (March 15) at 4:30 pm et/1:30pm pt on TSN.
Fans can also watch the game on the newly launched TSN GO (currently available to Bell TV and Rogers customers), which gives TSN subscribers the freedom to live stream the network's programming from their smartphones, tablets, and computers at no additional charge – just as they would watch Canada's Sports Leader on TV at home.
