TORONTO -- Toronto FC, the worst team in MLS last season, will welcome Eastern Conference champion Kansas City and the defending champion Los Angeles Galaxy to BMO Field in its first two home games in 2013.
Sporting Kansas City will visit March 9 after Toronto opens March 2 on the road in Vancouver. Toronto plays in Montreal on March 16 before the Galaxy come to BMO Field on March 30.
The league released its full schedule Wednesday after unveiling last month the first three weeks of the 2013 campaign.
Each of the league's 19 clubs will play 34 matches, 17 at home and 17 away, over 35 weeks.
The season kicks off March 2, the earliest start date in MLS history.
Toronto finished last in the league last season with a 5-21-8 record.
