Chicago Fire FC News Release


CHICAGO FIRE HEAD NORTH, FACE TORONTO FC ON SATURDAY

After a week off due to the international break, Chicago Fire FC returns for the second half of their 2024 campaign this Saturday night. The Fire will travel to face Toronto FC at BMO Field on Saturday, June 15 in the 38th all-time regular season matchup between the two teams.

This will be Chicago's first match against Toronto this year, but their second match against a Canadian side in 2024. The previous match was a thrilling 4-3 victory at Soldier Field against CF Montréal on March 16 that saw midfielder Kellyn Acosta score the latest game-winning goal in Fire history. With Chicago searching for their first road victory of the season, they'll face a Toronto side that has a 5-3-0 record on home turf. However, Toronto FC will be shorthanded, with Designated Player Federico Bernardeschi and defender Nicksoen Gomis each serving a one-game suspension due to receiving red cards in their previous match against D.C. United.

Chicago holds an all-time regular season record of 11-14-12 since their first match against Toronto FC in 2007. Four of Chicago's 11 victories have come on the road, and the Fire aim to record their fifth on Saturday night.

Kickoff for Saturday's match is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT. The match will be broadcast globally on MLS Season Pass on Apple TV and will also be transmitted locally on wlsam.com (English) and WRTO 1200 AM (Spanish).

72 - Defender Carlos Terán started his sixth straight game of the regular season and his seventh overall in Chicago's most recent victory against the LA Galaxy.
