MLS Cup in Photos: Toronto FC v Seattle Sounders (December 10, 2016)

It was an emotional night at BMO Field and although (as someone who covers Toronto FC) it may not have been the result I had hoped for I must say I am proud of the 2016 season as whole. Here are my favourite images from the 2016 MLS Cup:
