Toronto FC have announced that they will play Benfica on May 23rd and Aston Villa July 25th in friendlies. I speculated late last year that Villa would be the opponent for one of the friendlies as they had announced on their website that they would travel to play the Vancouver Whitecaps in a friendly on the the west coast in July. Season ticket holders who were originally promised 20 games, will now instead receive 18 games as the Villa & Benfica fixtures will be worth two vouchers. Benfica will arrive at the end of their current season, (which could mean a team full of reserves) while Villa will play Toronto as part of their pre-season schedule. The third match as part of the season ticket package will be this coming Friday as Canada's National U-20 team play Argentina at BMO. Season ticket holders are asked to use voucher A for the Benfica fixture and Voucher C for the Villa match. Vouchers B & D according to the email sent out by Toronto FC are apparently now worthless.

lets see if TFC fans will be typical toronto sports fans and keep their mouth shut in regards to not getting 20 games as initially promised. benfica and villa reserves = 4 matches....brilliant if they can pull this off without any complaints!!!!
