THE STARTING 11: Ways Euro 2016 Would Be Different if TFC Were Hosting


It’s not that crazy an idea. BMO Field has hosted all kinds of weird jazz such as Genesis, a Bill Clinton speech and whatever TFC’s 2012 season was all about – so why not the Euros?! Ok there’s the one tiny detail about not being in Europe but in this age of supersonic passenger flight and Twitter – that’s minor. After missing out on “The Great Lakes World Cup” why not host Europe’s finest… With a few small changes…

11. Bitchy the Hawk based out of Geneva

10. “Heritage Nights” mostly about the Austro-Hungarian Empire

9. Rohan Ricketts: England captain

8. NHL Winter Classic switched to Maple Leafs vs. HC Davos

7. Traditional UEFA trophy replaced with Trillium Cup and some leftover TFC Bands of Allegiance

6. GO Train unveil their European-style high speed service clocking in at a whopping 40km/h

5. Honduras inexplicably qualifies

4. Lake Ontario breezes give Iceland a home-field advantage

3. France have to share hotel rooms with the Argos

2. Turkey Butty

1. 100% more Raivis Hscanovics
