Toronto to host 2009 MLS Cup?

The league usually announces the site of MLS Cup about a year in advance, but the 2009 process is taking much more longer than usual. Why? From what I am hearing, the day of the week and the TV window are at the root of the discussions. All 13 MLS Cups have been held on a Sunday afternoon and this year’s final was tentatively scheduled for early in the day (Eastern time) on a Sunday.

But league officials are exploring the possibility of playing this season’s MLS Cup on a Saturday evening, which would allow Seattle to be seriously considered. The other venues mentioned to me were Toronto, Chicago and Foxborough. Of those four, however, only Chicago has a natural grass surface and all four might have late-November weather issues.
