Toronto FC will unveil its new jersey on Monday for the upcoming season, in what the team’s brass hopes will be a historic moment for the city.
The new jersey will be unveiled at Toronto FC’s training complex at 1:30 p.m.
PT and will feature the team crest with the name of the city that inspired it, which is Toronto.
It will be the first time the crest has been worn by a major American professional soccer team.
The Raptors have had a number of jerseys designed by Nike, including a version that was designed to be worn by the Canadian national team in the 2012 Summer Olympics, but that was discontinued after a failed attempt to bring the team back to Toronto.
The new jersey is the first in a line of new jerseys, which will also include a blue, white and red version.
A spokesman for the team told The Globe and Mail the team will be unveiling the new jerseys to the media on Monday afternoon at the training complex.
The city is already known for its rich sports history, with the Toronto Maple Leafs playing their inaugural game in the city in 1896 and the Maple Leaf Gardens home opener in 1926.
But the team has also had some issues in recent years, most notably a lack of sponsorship and fan support.
Last year, the Raptors were sold to Toronto-based investment firm Suncorp for $2.2 billion, but the team and the Raptors have not publicly discussed their future in the region.
The team has yet to announce any roster changes, though general manager Ryan Nelsen said in January that the club was working to bring in more experienced players, including forwards Luis Scola and Amir Johnson.
