You Can Play

Gay athletes. Straight allies. Teaming up for respect.


Toronto FC

Toronto FC becomes the first Canadian soccer team to speak on behalf of LGBT athletes and the You Can Play Project. A 2007 Major League Soccer expansion team, Toronto FC this year won its fourth consecutive Amway Canadian Championship.

In order of appearance: Torsten Frings (German), Eric Hassli (French), Richard Eckersley (English), Darren O'Dea (English), Milos Kocic (Serbian), Stefan Frei (Swiss/German), head coach Paul Mariner (English), academy director Thomas Rongen (Dutch) and Luis Silva (Spanish).
