Alligator Interrupts Toronto FC Practice in Florida

Players with Toronto FC got a real taste of the Sunshine State during a practice session in Orlando on April 26, when a giant alligator interrupted them.

The team joked that they had signed the reptile, dubbed Ale Gator, tweeting: “The deal was completed using our newly acquired GAM (Gator Acquisition Money).”

Gator was not included in the team’s starting line up against Mexico’s Cruz Azul on April 27, they joked.

The Canadian team has relocated to Orlando for the Major League Soccer season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Credit: Toronto FC via Storyful
