    Really disappointed that there isn't a giant inclusive viewing party a la BMO Field, Maple Leaf Square, etc. Leaving it up to all the bars and restaurants to have all these segregated viewing events. Boo urns. What a let down.

    And compete against NFL football with sound. Could be disappointing.

    I called and got the same thing -- they literally did not know what was going on until the tweet was already posted (great job MLSE! - it's not like this could have been communicated between all parties beforehand!) -- the woman seemed very nice and told me they just found out about this today and that it's already fully booked and they are only trying to figure out whether walk-ups will even be allowed; she told me that frankly you won't have a seat and you will be packed in like sardines at best....I guess it's time to camp out at Joes as I originally intended.....it's our home anyways....

    RS took down the reservation on Thursday morning for Sunday from 11 to 4:30 pm.

    I dont understand either. Why can't we have a big venue for viewing party. Will TFC ever be as big as Raptors? obliviously the weather and timing are not helping. Much better buzz around the city in 2017.

    Wonder if TFC would tell Real Sports they are taking the bar over and make it first come first serve. I am sure a lot of those resos were for NFL Sunday before we knew the Reds were in the final.

    I would check to make sure, it seems there is a lack of communication between Real Sports and TFC.

    You are right and , people should remember to tip Ďwellí the waitresses. They give up on many regulars and donít always get the deserved tip ! And MLS in its stupidity is going against the NFL , Joe and other bars will lose the NFL $$$ as well .

    There were about 140 people seated at Joes for the Atlanta game. It was tons of fun double that and it will really rock.

    I agree, there's not a lot of buzz like there was in 2016 and 2017. Perhaps it will start to increase closer to the match, but it seems awfully quiet.

    Possible all the home games in 2016 & 2017 helped with the hype.

    I emailed my rep a few days ago about this, and this morning got back a note from him saying that "no official communication has been made" but he'd "imagine that there will be a few spots in Liberty Village hosting a viewing party". So, there's that.

    My friends book RS Wednesday during the day( for just in case we make it),they told them why are they booking and why they want good table for 12 close to big screen.Reservation was confirmed,no issues.
    Thursday afternoon I was told it all booked because MLS Final and they don't take any new reservation. It will be mixed crowd that's for sure, NFL and MLS
    Great love does not exist without joy and without great suffering ,that's why One club is worth only as much as its fans !

    Hello, all.

    I just got off the phone with my ticket rep asking about what exactly is going on at Real Sport. Unfortunately, it sounds like there was a pretty big screw-up and a whole slew of seats were reserved beforehand for the MLS Cup Final and NFL matches. As a result, only the first floor has been given over to the MLS Cup Final on a first-come, first served basis.

    To be honest, itís very disappointing to hear that the club has not organized this viewing as well as they could have. I think BMO Field would have been a good option with the game getting patched into the big screen or something.

    Anyway, Iím hoping Joeís will allow for all fans this year. My membership lapsed years ago but weíre all running out of options to go.

    I can't express how sad it is there is no viewing party at Rogers Center / BMO Field or Jurassic Park.... How is the club supposed to become a big deal when MLS Cup is being treated like a regular season NHL game?

    I guess I am just going to be watching locally, please let me know the viewing party in Vaughan / Woodbridge

    They should just set up a big screen in Liberty Village outdoors like they did for the past finals we hosted.

    Craft Brasserie in Liberty Village will be showing the game on their TV's/Big Screen. It's always full of TFC fans pre-game at BMO. They have stopped taking reservations so there should be close to 200 people.
