Major League Soccer club Toronto FC have launched an investigation after a fan displayed a banner depicting a woman performing oral sex in their match with Montreal Impact on Saturday.
According to the Mirror's Liam Corless, the banner—which included the caption "Montreal sucks"—was produced by a supporter during the game at BMO Field, and the club have appealed to any fans who have information that could identify the person responsible.
Here is the banner, courtesy of Twitter user blackbetty07:
Per Corless, Toronto released a statement after the game apologising for the banner, branding it "insulting to many including our opponent, the City of Montreal, and their fans."
The club further condemned those responsible:
It was an embarrassment to our club and to our supporters and will not be tolerated. We sincerely apologize to the Montreal Impact, the City of Montreal, and all fans for this disgraceful act.
We are currently investigating through all available security and social media footage and strongly encourage fans with any information to assist us in identifying those involved so that they can be held responsible.
The two sides met in the Eastern Conference, with the Impact claiming the 1-0 victory thanks to Ignacio Piatti's second-half winner.
