The Canadian club put together a memorable regular season, with Sunday's result against Atlanta helping the club to a league points record

After falling just short of the MLS Cup title last season, Toronto FC clearly came into 2017 looking to prove a point. 

Having clinched the Supporters' Shield with two matches remaining, the club locked up at least a share of the MLS points record with a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact last week, and set the new mark with a 2-2 draw against Atlanta United on the final day of the season. 

The single point takes the club to 69 on the season, one clear of the 1998 LA Galaxy as the highest points total in the history of the league. 

Toronto FC record

Sebastian Giovinco scored a brilliant free kick to bring TFC level in the 84th minute, helping the club secure the record. 

Toronto will have a first-round bye in the MLS Cup playoffs as the top seed in the Eastern Conference and the league overall.
