Watch Toronto FC vs Seattle Sounders Live Soccer, Toronto vs Seattle Live MLS Cup Final 2016 has nearly arrived. On Saturday night, Toronto FC of the Eastern Conference hosts Western Conference champs the Seattle Souders for the league’s biggest prize. It all comes down to this. Just under 10 months of soccer, 356 matches and nearly 1,000 goals across the regular season and playoffs come down to one single game: Toronto FC vs. the Seattle Sounders (tonight, 8 p.m. ET on FOX).
Toronto FC and Seattle Sounders FC will meet on Saturday at BMO Field in the 2016 MLS Cup final, as one of the two teams will win its first-ever MLS title. Sounders have come close in the past, winning the Supporters’ Shield in 2014, but they face a difficult challenge in Canada, where Toronto have been exceptionally strong all season.
Seattle started the season in nearly the worst way possible. Let’s just say Duncan Meyer was faster out of the gates. Seattle won just six of its first 21 games and looked like it didn’t have a chance to make the playoffs. Sigi Schmid was fired, and the team was in turmoil. But from August seventh onward, the team played 15 matches, winning nine of them, including ending the season winning four of six as Brian Schmetzer has his team focused and confident.
Peaks and valleys, highs and lows, a roller coaster ride. No matter how you spin it, 2016 has been a very interesting year in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle suffered a herky-jerky start to the season before lapsing into a stretch of just two wins in 12 matches. That brought about a number of changes, namely the firing of Sigi Schmid as coach in late July and the appointment of Brian Schmetzer as his replacement.
