BMO Field is home to Toronto FC (Major League Soccer) and Toronto Argonauts (Canadian Football League) teams. In addition, the venue has been host to rugby matches, plenty of concerts, MLS cups, and more. The venue, which opened in 2007, is at 170 Princes’ Blvd, Toronto, ON M6K 3C3, Canada, and sits in front of Lake Ontario.

My Recommendation on Parking + Experience with SpotHero


I’m a big SpotHero user, so I always recommend fans check it out before driving to any arena. From my experience, I tend to save about 30% (or more) on parking using this service over the official lots next to an arena. I’ve found that if you can park 10-15 minutes away from your destination, you will find the sweet spot of cost-savings and distance. I’ve been using SpotHero for years and have never had a problem with it reserving parking. Plus, you can see on the map where these unofficial parking lots are located, making it easy to use and reserve parking.

According to the official BMO Field website, there are 88 ADA parking spaces at Exhibition Place Lot 2, below gate 3. If you have any questions on where to park, you can ask the parking attendants working the lots on game day or for the event. Also, fans can use Gate 1 or Gate 3 to pick up and drop off fans who need extra assistance, but it is best to check in first with the parking attendants at the stadium when you plan to do that in case any special requirements are necessary.


Is there Tailgating in the Parking Lots?

Is there Tailgating Before a Toronto FC Match

There isn’t any official tailgating in the BMO Field parking lots, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants that fans like to visit before and after a soccer game. Some popular bars and restaurants include Falcon Skybar, Glow Bar, Grand Bizare Supper Club, and Liberty Commons.


In addition to that, the soccer stadium sits about 3 miles from Rogers Centre (home of the Toronto Blue Jays), so proper planning can have you catch a soccer and baseball game on the same day. If you can do that, you can, in theory, bar hop to either venue and make a day of it.
