    Fan base = tv exposure and we have none. Neither do Benfica. The EPL sells.

    Given it an International weekend we aren't postponing any games as none are scheduled

    Someone must believe Benfica in Toronto will attract a decent attendance if they're willing to pay for both teams.
    It's not in Toronto though it's in Hamilton,there would need to be a huge influx from Toronto going but I've seen Rangers in Toronto many times and we've never been in a position where they're turning Bears away at the turnstiles.

    The last time I saw them in Hamilton the Toronto Blizzard beat us 2-0

    I live in Canada and have booked a trip back to Glasgow when this game is scheduled.

    Surely, if this was going to happen it would be best during the winter break. See no benefit in this game being played in October.

    On the subject of Toronto.......on holiday in Yorkshire recently, was watching the local news and they mentioned the Rugby League.

    I was amazed to find out that there is a team from Toronto in the bottom division of the Rugby League set up. They are called Toronto Wolfpack, and are going to be playing against the likes of Whitehaven and Workington!

    Huge Portuguese community in the GTA (Toronto) which should draw a decent crowd regardless of their affiliations.

    Will head down if this is confirmed, will be a good weekend and even better if the Blue Jays make post season but it does not look too good.

    from the Benfica site Benfica wants to play Rangers at Eusébio Cup

    Benfica have invited Rangers to the Eusébio Cup, which this year will take place on 6 October in Canada.

    The news is being advanced by the Scottish press, but it is not yet certain that the Scottish emblem will accept the invitation.

    Initially, the game was to be held on July 22, but the invited team, Chapecoense, eventually declined the invitation of the incarnates.

    The date and place were thus changed. It remains to be seen if Glasgow Rangers will be available.

    Pi55ed off if true. Visit the States in a couple of weeks. Driving up to Niagara Falls for 4 day visit end of Sept. Hamilton is 45 mins. away from Niagara. Will be back home when game is scheduled. Typical.

    The Leafs against the Rangers on Oct 7th would be a must for me!
