A Canadian Major League Soccer team may night be used to this. Welcome to Florida!

It was a closed practice for the Toronto FC. Because of pandemic protocols, they are playing their games in Florida. (Just like the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Raptors). They were practicing at ChampionsGate Resort when they had a pretty big unexpected visitor.

A staff member of the resort was able to chase the alligator away with a golf cart. Floridians may be pretty used to the occasional alligator sighting, but these players from around the world seem to be caught a big off-guard. Watch the video and you’ll see some players move pretty quickly when they get scared by the gator.

The Toronto FC organization had some fun with their scaled visitor, having Tweeted they had signed the large reptile.
