BMO Field has been around for a decade, after opening in 2007 to accommodate the newly formed Toronto FC of Major League Soccer. It replaced another sports venue that was in the exact same place, Exhibition Stadium, which was torn down in the late 1990s after being the home of the Toronto Argonauts and Blue Jays. Today, it is the home of two professional sports teams in Toronto, as well as other events.
The two teams that currently occupy BMO Field are the aforementioned Toronto FC, along with the Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, both of whom are high-level competitors in their respective leagues. The venue was also home to the Toronto Nationals of Major League Lacrosse for one season, in 2009, before moving to a smaller stadium for their next season. Toronto FC nearly won a championship at BMO Field, dropping the 2016 MLS Cup in a penalty shootout to the Seattle Sounders.
BMO Field has hosted U-20 World Cup action twice in its history, as it was the home of many 2007 U-20 men's World Cup games, including the final that was won by Argentina. It also was the home for seven U-20 Women's World Cup games in 2014, including a quarterfinal match that saw the United States eliminated by North Korea on penalties. Other international competition at BMO Field includes the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where a pair of group stage matches were held, including a scoreless draw between Costa Rica and Canada.
In addition to its soccer hosting abilities, BMO Field has hosted several other notable sporting events. It was the home of the NHL Centennial Classic in 2017, which saw the Detroit Red Wings take on the hometown Toronto Maple Leafs. BMO Field has also seen the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team, one of the most iconic teams in sport, grace its field in a victory over the Canadian national team.
