Toronto FC responds to fan revolt

[MLS] In response to a fan revolt, Toronto FC has extended the deadline for season-ticket holders to renew and will give away the 2011 opener for free. It also announced it will not raise ticket prices in 2012 for returning season-ticket holders.

The move followed feedback the MLS club gathered through e-mails, online chats and town hall meetings.

"The meetings were crucial to helping us understand your concerns," the e-mail said. "Toronto FC fans are unique -- you love your club, you feel a part of the club, but your club has let you down on and off the pitch."

TFC has consistently sold out BMO Field but again failed to make the playoffs. Following the club's move to raise season-ticket prices, fans staged a silent protest during the recent 2-2 tie with Columbus.
