Toronto Italia drew its support from Little Italy, described by the Toronto Star as “the Cosmopolitan area bounded by Spadina, Queen and Eglinton, that has become the home for some 150,000 Italians since the war”.
After losing out on winning the 1959 NSL championship by gaining one point less than Montreal Cantalia, Toronto Italia invested heavily in new players before the start of the 1960 season. Club manager Alan Astri spent close to $20,000 on new recruits and the club also hired Hungarian coach John Kiss.
Italia averaged over 6,000 fans but after the season the Toronto Star wrote that “Allan Astri’s $45,000 club lost some $6,000 on the season”.
