Impact-Toronto MLS play-off delayed due to wrong field dimensions

Ground staff only had one job at Stade Olympique and they failed as kick-off in the MLS Eastern Conference Finals first leg was embarrassingly delayed on Tuesday.

With a capacity crowd of 61,004 eagerly awaiting kick-off in Montreal, the all-Canadian blockbuster against Toronto was pushed back by 38 minutes after the referee determined the penalty area had been drawn incorrectly.

The Impact confirmed kick-off had been delayed due to a “technical problem” as ground staff scrambled frantically to repaint the 18-yard box.

Stade Olympique is the venue for the opening leg as both teams vie for a spot in the MLS Cup, after the Impact’s 20,801-seat stadium was deemed too small.

The Impact reached the Conference Finals after upstaging New York Red Bulls, while Toronto FC crushed New York City in the previous round.
