Toronto FC II is a Canadian professional soccer team based in Toronto, Ontario, who play in USL League One, the third tier of the American & Canadian soccer league system. It is the reserve team and minor league affiliate of Toronto FC as well as in partnership with Toronto FC Academy.
Upon their entrance into Major League Soccer, Toronto FC fielded their reserves in the MLS Reserve League from 2007 to 2013. In 2014, Toronto FC entered into a one-year partnership with the Wilmington Hammerheads of the USL to serve as their affiliate, with whom they would loan players to.
On November 20, 2014, Toronto FC announced the creation of a reserve team that would play in the third-tier United Soccer League under the name Toronto FC II. The team began play in March 2015, playing at the then-newly constructed 3,500-seat stadium at the Ontario Soccer Centre in Vaughan, just north-northwest of Toronto. They played their first match on June 27, 2015 against Wilmington Hammerheads. In 2017, the USL was promoted to second-tier.
On July 2, 2018, the team announced they would move down from the United Soccer League to USL League One for the league's first season in 2019. TFC II played in Saskatoon for the first SK Summer Soccer Series, which is hosted by the Saskatchewan Selects. The Selects defeated TFC II 2–0.
In July 2020, the team withdrew from the 2020 USL League One season, due to travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. They returned to the league in 2021, beginning the season at the Grande Sports World training facility in Casa Grande, Arizona, due to continued travel restrictions caused by the continuing pandemic. After playing their first 3 home games there, following 3 home games will be played at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida.

Coaches since 2015
The expansion Toronto FC II hosted their games at a new stadium constructed at the Ontario Soccer Centre beginning with the first season in 2015. However, after the planned expansion of the OSC to 5,000 seats, which is a minimum requirement set by the United States Soccer Federation for the USL to be sanctioned as a division 2 league, did not materialize, the club announced that it would move its home games to BMO Field and Lamport Stadium beginning with the 2018 season.
In 2018, the team used Monarch Park Stadium for one game in May, relocated one game to Charlotte, and relocated another four games to Rochester's Marina Auto Stadium, while waiting on availability at Lamport Stadium.
