Montreal Impact roasts MLS over Toronto-centric tweet

Apparently MLS doesn’t own a map.

Luckily for them, the Montreal Impact’s Twitter account is more than happy to provide them with one.

In a poorly researched attempt to hype up Saturday’s game between the Impact and Toronto FC, the MLS referred to the rivalry between the two cities as the 401 Derby.

Highway 401 passes through Toronto, but anyone who actually looks at it on a map will realize that it never leaves the borders of Ontario, meaning a 401 Derby would make it a one-horse race.

The Impact’s Twitter account was quick to point this fact out to the league.

Impact fans were pretty stoked that their team decided to call the league out on the Ontario-centric tweet.
