The Philadelphia Union will travel to Toronto in May and September and host Toronto FC in July, according to Canadian Soccer News, during the 2012 MLS regular season.

The Canadian news outlet got hold of TFC's 2012 MLS schedule ahead of the league's official release of each team's schedule and it shows that the Canadian club is one of the Union's standard three game Eastern Conference opponents this upcoming season.

The Union will host Toronto on July 7 at PPL Park in Chester, PA, marking the third time that the two teams will play at the stadium since Philadelphia's 2010 inaugural MLS season. Philadelphia will play away at BMO Field in Toronto on May 26 and September 15.

With a 1-0-1 record versus TFC at BMO Field, and a 1-1-0 record at PPL Park, the Union will not complain about having to travel to Ontario twice in 2012. In their victory in Toronto, the Union set a franchise record for goals scored in a 6-2 win.
