TORONTO (AP) — Toronto FC and Montreal have been given the green light to play at home Saturday, with a limited number of fans in the stands.

Major League Soccer said Wednesday that Toronto will host Orlando City on Saturday and the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday at BMO Field and that Montreal will play FC Cincinnati on Saturday at Saputo Stadium.

The third Canadian team, the Vancouver Whitecaps, will play "home" matches July 17 and July 20 in Sandy, Utah, as conversations continue with the Canadian government.

A Toronto FC spokesman said 7,000 fans will be allowed Saturday and 15,000 next week, with Saturday's crowd made up of front-line health-care workers, first responders and season seat members. Montreal will allow 5,000 fans.
