    Default TFC II playing 4 home games in Rochester

    I guess that might explain why there are no stadium's ID'ed for their home games yet...

    Rochester is old school US soccer royalty - circa 1969 - 2000. Won the US Open in 1999 beating the Rapids in the final.

    Interesting move by TFC to keep a soccer presence going in a market so far away.

    Too bad the Toronto to Rochester "fast" ferry is gone...

    Would we get tix to those games as part of our season package? I wouldn’t go myself, but have friend in Rochester I’d offer them to...

    I know a former player on Rochester. They had somewhat of an implosion after winning it all a couple years ago.

    This is an interesting move.

    Lamport Stadium will be undergoing renovations and is slated to be ready for USL play in late August.
    Why is this being called a "renovation" and why will it be taking so long if it allegedly involves nothing more than new artificial turf?

    No start times listed yet. If nothing is changed, five of the TFC II matches at BMO are on the same date as TFC ones already scheduled there on:
    Sat. Apr. 7, 7:30pm
    Sat. Apr. 28, 3pm
    Wed. May 9, 7:30pm
    Sun. July 1, 4:30pm
    Sun. Aug. 12, 4pm

    It's easy to envision the TFC II games being played after the three afternoon TFC matches, but what about the other two in the evening? Is it possible they would have the USL game there earlier in the day before the MLS match? Presumably they're going to have at least one TFC II game on a weekday at noon with thousands of school kids being bused in, and Wednesday May 9 would seem to be a good possibility for that.

    I was wondering how this access to TFCII season games would work for those of us with TFC "memberships". I have 4 season tickets, does that mean I get 4 TFCII tickets to each game as well or are they only giving a pair per account holder? I am sure they won't be reserving the equivalent 18000 season tickets (or whatever TFC are at these days) for each TFCII game so maybe we get access to request tickets through Account Manager or something for each game? Maybe we show our season ticket member card and get entrance for general admission. I have no idea how they will do it. Anyone find any info on that? I guess we will get a communication at some point.

    Start times have been added to the TFC II schedule.
    Home opener vs Ottawa is at 7:30 pm on Saturday March 31.
    As I mentioned in the post above, there are three TFC II games (Apr. 28, July 1, Aug. 12) scheduled at BMO Field after TFC weekend afternoon games.

    The Saturday Apr. 7 TFC II game at BMO Field is at 2 pm, before a TFC game at 7:30 pm.
    The Wednesday May 9 TFC II game is at 11 am, before a TFC game at 7:30 pm.
