Toronto FC is looking at hosting Mexico's Cruz Azul at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., later this month. The two teams are set to meet April 27 in the first leg of their Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal. The second leg is scheduled for May 4 in Mexico. The Champions League is CONCACAF's flagship club competition. TFC president Bill Manning says the Toronto end of the tie will be played at Raymond James, "pending site inspections." Raymond James Stadium is home to the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 65,000-capacity venue, which hosted its first NFL game in 1998, is named after Raymond James Financial, a financial services firm headquartered in nearby St. Petersburg. Manning knows the stadium, having served as president and GM of the MLS's Tampa Bay Mutiny, which moved there in 1999 before folding, along with the Miami Fusion in 2002. The stadium is famous for its 30-metre-long pirate ship at one end, complete with cannons — which fire seven times after each Buccaneer touchdown and three times after a field goal. Toronto has shifted operations to Orlando due to pandemic-related travel restrictions. Its first two MLS home games are scheduled for Exploria Stadium, home to Orlando City SC. The club has not specified venues for future home matches. TFC was scheduled to play its end of the Champions League round-of-16 tie against Mexico's Club Leon at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee last Wednesday. But the game was shifted to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista after CONCACAF, the confederation that covers North and Central America and the Caribbean, objected to a retaining wall it said was too close to the pitch. Rather than reduce the playing surface, Toronto opted to change venues. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 17, 2021 Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press
A group of U.S. electricity companies wrote to President Joe Biden this week saying it will work with his administration and Congress to design a broad set of policies to reach a near-term goal of slashing the sector's carbon emissions by 2030. Washington should implement policies, including a clean energy standard, or CES, to ensure the electricity industry cuts carbon emissions 80% below 2005 levels by 2030, the group of 13 power interests, including generators Exelon Corp, PSEG and Talen Energy Corp, said in a letter to Biden. The letter, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, did not mention Biden's goal to fully decarbonize the power sector by 2035 as part of his strategy to fight climate change.

Canada will donate $200,000 to the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award as a tribute to the late Prince Philip's "remarkable life and his selfless service," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Saturday. The announcement came as a ceremonial procession led the Prince's coffin on a specially adapted Land Rover to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for the official funeral. The husband of The Queen for more than three quarters of a century — the longest serving royal consort in British history — died April 9 at the age of 99. Philip was a "devoted public servant whose contributions changed countless lives around the world, especially those of young people," Trudeau said in a statement. The donation to the Canadian branch of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award honours his commitment to the success of future generations, he added. “I encourage young Canadians to find out more about the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award," Trudeau said. "Whether you want to develop a new skill, give back to your community, or set out on an adventure, this program is as much a personal challenge as it is a global opportunity." Many Canadians are expected to join royal watchers around the world in saying their final goodbyes, albeit virtually. Due to pandemic protocols, Canadians intending to pay their last respects will be limited to gathering in only small groups to watch the proceedings either on television or online. The funeral at St. George’s Chapel will salute both Philip's service in the Royal Navy and his enduring support for his wife the Queen. The pared down ceremony will be limited to 30 mourner's inside the chapel, including the widowed queen, her four children and her eight grandchildren. He will be laid to rest in the Royal Vault at Windsor Castle after the service. Canada will hold a national commemorative ceremony in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh at Christ Church Cathedral at 12:30 p.m. in Ottawa. In accordance with pandemic-related restrictions, no guests will be invited to attend the church service, and Canadians are asked to watch the broadcast and not congregate outside. The ceremony, which will include virtual tributes and performances, will be followed by a recital by the Dominion Carillonneur at the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill. A gun salute will also be conducted as part of the national commemorative ceremony. - With files from The Associated Press This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 17, 2021.

ISLAMABAD — Authorities in Pakistan have decided to start vaccinating people aged 50 to 59 next week, hours after the country reported over 100 fatalities in a single day for the fifth consecutive day. Saturday's figures bring Pakistan's death toll from the pandemic to 16,094, out of more than 750,000 total confirmed cases in the country of some 233 million people. Federal authorities said 4,149 patients were in critical care hospital units. Pakistan has largely relied on donated or imported Chinese vaccines, which had been offered only to health workers and elderly people. But they have not responded in overwhelming numbers to the vaccination campaign, prompting officials to offer the vaccines to a younger cohort. Pakistan hopes to receive 15 million COVID-19 vaccine doses through the UN-backed COVAX program by next month. ___ THE VIRUS OUTBREAK: — The worldwide death toll from COVID-19 has passed a staggering 3 million — Canada's largest province limits outdoor gatherings amid wave of infections — Clammers keep digging through the pandemic, but find fewer shellfish ___ Follow all of AP’s pandemic coverage at https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic and https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine ___ HERE’S WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING: HARARE, Zimbabwe — Zimbabwe has begun releasing about 3,000 prisoners under a presidential amnesty aimed at easing congestion to reduce the threat of COVID-19 in the country’s overcrowded jails. About 400 prisoners were released from Chikurubi prison and other jails in the capital, Harare, on Saturday with more coming from other prisons countrywide. Zimbabwe’s prisons have a capacity of 17,000 prisoners but held about 22,000 before the amnesty declared by President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Those to be released had been convicted of nonviolent crimes. The amnesty “will go a long way” to reduce expenditure and the threat of the spread of the virus in prisons, said Alvord Gapare, the commander for prisons in Harare. He said prisons in the capital had recorded 173 confirmed infections and one death. Zimbabwe has recorded 37,534 cases of COVID-19, including 1,551 deaths by Apr. 17, according to the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. ___ LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- A high school in New Mexico has returned to remote learning as the school district investigates an off-campus “secret prom.” Officials said Friday that the event in Las Cruces violated state mandates intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus. A school district statement said a complaint submitted to the governor’s office alleged that hundreds of Mayfield High School students may have attended the unsanctioned prom held April 10. A district spokeswoman said students who attended could face repercussions ranging from academic suspensions to being barred from attending school events such as graduation. The district said Mayfield would be on remote learning through April 26. ___ RICHMOND, Va. — The first cases of the so-called Brazil COVID-19 variant have been identified in two samples from residents of Virginia, state health officials said Friday. In a news release, the Virginia Department of Health said one case involving the P.1 variant was identified in an adult resident of the Northwest Region who had a history of domestic travel during the exposure period. The second case was identified in an adult resident of the Eastern Region with no history of travel, the department said. According to the department, neither case had a record of COVID-19 vaccination prior to the onset of the illness. ___ ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The number of new COVID-19 cases is ticking up again in New Mexico as the death toll reaches another milestone. State health officials reported Friday that four more people have succumbed to the virus, pushing the total to 4,001 since the pandemic began last year. While the death rate has declined dramatically since peaking in December, state officials continue to push for people to get vaccinated, saying doing so will lessen the chances of severe illness or death. With 1,550 confirmed cases being reported over the past week, the seven-day average for new daily cases remains above the state’s target. The Associated Press

Internet celebrity Jake Paul and former MMA star Ben Askren face off tonight in a much-hyped boxing match in Atlanta. The Saturday evening contest is Paul’s third professional fight following his initial first-round destruction of fellow YouTube star AnEsonGib last January and November’s brutal early stoppage of ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, which took place on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s exhibition return against Roy Jones Jr. Now the 24-year-old - younger brother of Logan Paul, who has also turned his hand to professional boxing - steps up against a seasoned fighter in Askren, who retired from the world of mixed martial arts in 2019.

New fighting has broken out in Mozambique’s northern town of Palma, some three weeks after an attack by hardline Islamist militants killed dozens of people and displaced thousands from their homes. “The situation is under control,” a military commander told AFP news agency, describing how shots were fired.Another security source in Maputo, also speaking on the condition of anonymity to AFP, described simultaneous attacks in a village in Mueda, in Pundanhar and Palma, all in Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province.The attack against Palma on 24 March marked an escalation of an insurgency led by fighters from an Islamic State-linked group. The province has been the scene of violence and attacks over the past three years.The uncertainty encouraged France’s oil multinational Total to abandon a large-scale gas project, over fears about security.Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi has tried to quell concerns, announcing last week that fighters had been repulsed from Palma, with the army saying a large number of jihadists had been killed.
