Toronto FC introduce Canadian players

TORONTO (CP) - All 1,000 spots at an open tryout for Toronto FC have been filled, the expansion MLS club said Thursday.

The club says it has received applications from across Canada and from as far away as Cruzeiro, Brazil. The tryouts, open to players 14 and over at a non-refundable cost of $115, needed just over two weeks to reach capacity.

A waiting list has been created for those turned down.

The tryouts run Dec. 18 to 22 at the Ontario Soccer Centre in Vaughan, Ont.

Toronto FC is the league's 13th franchise and will begin play next spring at the new 20,000-seat BMO Field at Exhibition Place on the Toronto waterfront.
