Kosi Trevor David Thompson, the Canadian soccer prodigy, has left an indelible mark on Toronto FC and beyond. Beginning his soccer journey with the Vaughan Azzurri youth system, Thompson's innate talent quickly caught the attention of Terry Dunfield, who became his coach at the U14 level in the Toronto FC Academy.

Impressing both on and off the field, Thompson's exemplary performance led to his appointment as the team captain. His contributions were pivotal in securing the 2019 U16 Dallas Cup, and he earned a well-deserved spot on the 2019-20 Generation Adidas Best XI.

Before his breakthrough with the first team, Thompson honed his skills during the 2021 season with Toronto FC II, amassing 27 appearances in the 2021 USL League One regular season. His dedication and impressive performances earned him a spot in the Toronto FC lineup.

In a pivotal moment, Kosi Thompson made his debut for Toronto FC on March 12, 2022, against Columbus Crew. The young talent showcased his goal-scoring prowess, netting his first goal for the club in a memorable match against Real Salt Lake on April 9, 2022.

In a strategic move, Toronto FC loaned midfielder Kosi Thompson to Norwegian top-flight club Lillestrom SK for the remainder of the 2023 Major League Soccer season. The loan includes an option for Lillestrom to exercise a permanent transfer for Thompson at the end of his loan period. Despite facing challenges, Thompson made a solid debut for Lillestrom against Aalesund on September 3.
