Code of Conduct

BMO Field and Major League Soccer are committed to creating a safe, comfortable and enjoyable soccer experience for all guests in and around our stadium. Fans have a right to expect and enjoy an environment:

  • where Fans are encouraged to cheer, sing, and otherwise support their team while remaining respectful and courteous to their fellow patrons, referees, opposing team fans and players.
  • free from fighting, thrown objects, attempts to enter the field, political or inciting messages, and disorderly behaviour, including foul, sexist, racial, obscene or abusive language or gestures.
  • where Fans comply with requests from stadium staff regarding stadium policies and emergency response procedures.
  • where Fans promptly and carefully return the ball to a stadium staff member or the ball kid on the sidelines in the event that a soccer ball enters the stands.
  • where Alcoholic beverages are consumed in a responsible manner and only by those of legal age.
  • where Fans conduct themselves in a lawful manner to avoid incidents in the stadium and in the parking lots.
  • free of Prohibited Items and Restricted Items (as defined below).

Failure to abide by this Code of Conduct at BMO Field or while attending any Major League Soccer match regardless of venue, is subject to sanctions at the discretion of building security and club management, including ejection, arrest and banishment from all MLS venues. Moreover, failure to abide by this Code of Conduct for Toronto FC matches (regardless of location) may result in loss of Season and Partial Ticket Privileges. Toronto FC season ticket and suite holders are reminded that they are responsible for the behaviour of anyone using their tickets.
