TorontoFC.ca April 27, 2011 Toronto FC will begin its defence of the Nutrilite Canadian Championship Wednesday night in Alberta against FC Edmonton (8 p.m. ET on Rogers Sportsnet). The Reds went through this tournament last season undefeated on way to the CONCACAF Champions League preliminary round and group stage.

The winner will be decided over two legs, with Toronto hosting the second game on May 4 at BMO Field. The club that wins in aggregate will then face the winner of Montreal-Vancouver over another two legs to decide Canada's lone representative in the 2011/12 CONCACAF Champions League preliminary round. FC Edmonton is a first-year club playing in the North American Soccer League. The Monties have two wins and a loss from their first three NASL matches scoring three goals and conceding the same amount. Edmonton features Canadian international Eddy Sidra and former Montreal Impact defender Alex Surprenant.
