This is the second clash between these two teams. New York won a 2-1 game at BMO Field on April 27. They will meet again on Sept. 14.
In 16 previous encounters between New York and Toronto, the Red Bulls have won nine games. TFC has taken four and there have been three draws.
New York had two players, Thierry Henry and Tim Cahill, named to the 2013 Major League Soccer All-Star team gameday roster to represent MLS against AS Roma. Toronto had none.
Toronto FC has won only one of its last 13 MLS matches.
Toronto has shed two veteran central defenders in recent weeks. Former U.S. international Danny Califf retired to take a job with the team as a scout, and team captain and Irish international Darren O'Dea left to join FC Metalurh Donetsk in Ukraine.
