"It's always exciting to play a match against a club as storied as AS Roma," said Toronto FC President and General Manager Kevin Payne.

"With great players like (Francesco) Totti and (Daniele) de Rossi, this will be a real test for our players and a treat for our supporters and the Italian community in Toronto."
