Watch Toronto FC and New York City FC brawl on the pitch in incredible scenes after wild MLS match


A day of rivalry between Toronto FC and New York City FC ended with players and staff brawling on the pitch.

The teams traded blows for 90 minutes and some changes as NYCFC won 3-2 north of the border. However, the action did not end with the final whistle at BMO Field.

A verbal exchange of words from the heated game led to members of both clubs swapping boots and dubbing sets in a moshpit of blue and gray jerseys.

At the center of the fracas, former NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson pointed the finger at defender Strahinja Tanasijević before aggressively pushing and chasing the Yugoslav.

After teammates swarmed and separated the two, Johnson ran around the crowd, held Tanasijević in a grip and appeared to throw the stock when NYCFC home player Tayvon Gray tried to separate them.
