    Default MLS Cup Events/Festivities

    Anyone hear of any official/unofficial events surrounding the MLS Cup? Fan zone? After parties? Entertainment? Tailgate? Inquiring minds want to know!

    I thought everyone was headed back to your place after the game.

    What started out as three days of pre-match events was quickly pared back to two days worth once Toronto was the host site. And the agenda for those two days is a bit thin for an event of this type. There's still a lot to get buttoned down for Thursday's commencement.

    Why was it scaled back? I assume the weather played a part it in.

    But it sure wasn't the weather. Never assume.

    He has done this a number of times in cities when he is in town for both MLS and US games. Great to see.

    Is there anything at all happening down at BMO or the Ex before the game? There seems to be no MLS "events" surrounding the game.

    You can sign-up for a TFC mastercard and receive a free fridge magnet before the game

    There are always some activation/sponsor booths for TFC games so I am sure it won't be any different with MLS Cup.
    Probably just more League Sponsors instead of TFC sponsors.

    Thanks for everyone's input, I'm surprised MLS/MLSE hasn't done more running up to the game. I seem to remember a lot of public and supporter stuff happening prior to the last MLS cup in Toronto.. Live bands, supporters conference, pub nights. This year seems lame in comparison, I guess MLSE really has no experience with a final and are lost on how to handle it.

    I think last time because it was a pre-determined city for the final MLSE had the whole season to prepare events, etc.

    But I feel they could do better then what they have offered so far.

    Some interactive, street style games they could have at a fanfest type thing outside the stadium:

    "The Nick Garcia defending challenge"

    "Mista shooting practice"

    "Marvell Wynne 40 yard dash"

    I was expecting a bunch of cringe-worthy MLS and MLSE sponsored events. I'm very glad that the focus seems to be on what's important: the game, and fucking winning it!

    they knew months in advance that it was going to take place in Toronto in 2010 and events aren't that easy to organize...so I can understand the lack of stuff.

    Who cares about sport fest events, they usually suck. Show up on Saturday for the march to the stadium, that is what matters most before the game.
