Good: 2011 Home Kit

The perfect combination of every TFC color scheme. Red shorts, grey sleeves and the perfect stand-out color combination between red and white in the jersey.

What’s best about these kits has to be the Adidas stripes surrounding the Canadian flag on the sleeve. It doesn’t feature like that to this day, but maybe the designers can take some inspiration for the future.

Toronto finished pretty poor on the MLS table the season these jerseys were displayed. Yet, the Reds were still able to qualify for the Champions League and make the semi-finals as a result of a strong set of performances towards the end of the campaign.

An interesting factor is that Ashtone Morgan graduated from the Toronto FC Academy that year, and did play in this kit. Morgan, of course, still plays with Toronto today and has been rewarded with trophies for his loyalty to the club.

Honorable Mention: The 2014 Away kits could easily make a case for the best Toronto jersey to date. The black concept which featured an array of maple leafs resembled passion for play in Canada, while looking pretty cool on the pitch, too.
