If were at BMO field to see Toronto FC in action on Saturday, you might have noticed some added security around the stadium.

Toronto police said there is no imminent threat, but more officers and security personnel would be on hand as a precaution.

A few post-game road restrictions were also in effect in the immediate area surrounding BMO Field to “ensure the safe flow of pedestrian traffic,” police said in a release.

Exhibition Place was restricted to only hotel guests and employees.

Following Monday’s van attack in North York, event organizers in the city are re-evaluating security measures and number of Toronto landmarks including Union Station and the Rogers Centre have installed temporary concrete barriers.
