All times CET/CEST NotesNote 1: On 29 October 2009, UEFA's Control and Disciplinary Body ruled that Dinamo Zagreb would have to play their next two home matches in the UEFA Europa League behind closed doors due to the actions of their supporters in their match at Timișoara. They deducted three points from the Croatian club's points tally in Group A; the club appealed, but the appeal was not heard until after the first closed-doors game against Ajax. After the appeal was heard, UEFA replaced the three point deduction with a €75,000 fine, a three-year suspended ban from European competition, while the two-match stadium ban remained unchanged. NotesNote 2: Lille played their home group matches in Villeneuve d'Ascq at Stadium Lille-Metropole as Lille's Stade Grimonprez Jooris was left in 2004.

2014 Toronto municipal election

The 2014 Toronto municipal election was held on October 27, 2014 to elect a mayor and 44 city councillors in Toronto, Canada. In addition, school trustees were elected to the Toronto District School Board, Toronto Catholic District School Board, Conseil scolaire de district du Centre-Sud-Ouest and Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud; the election was held in conjunction with those held in other municipalities in the province of Ontario. Candidate registration opened on January 2, 2014 and closed on September 12, 2014 at 2pm EST. City councillors were elected to represent Toronto's 44 wards at Toronto City Council. 36 out of 37 incumbent councillors were re-elected to their previous seat. School trustees were elected to the: Toronto District School Board Toronto Catholic District School Board Conseil scolaire de district du Centre-Sud-Ouest Conseil scolaire de district catholique Centre-Sud. In the Greater Toronto Area, the average time spent commuting to and from work is 80 minutes, making it the worst among 19 large urban areas in North America.

Transit was a major issue because of several controversial projects in the city, such as the use of subway versus light rail transit technology to replace the Scarborough RT, congested TTC streetcars, construction disruption from the Eglinton Crosstown, the electrification of the Union Pearson Express. Proposals by Metrolinx to impose revenue tools to fund transit were a source of controversy; the Toronto Region Board of Trade and TTC CEO Andy Byford stated that transit must be a critical issue that voters consider in the election. Much attention was given to allegations against Rob Ford during the 2014 election, his admission on November 5, 2013, to smoking crack cocaine. On June 11, 2013, Toronto City Council passed a motion asking the Government of Ontario to give permanent residents the right to participate in municipal elections and to allow the city to adopt ranked choice balloting, which would give voters the option to rank candidates in order of preference. Twenty-six councillors supported fifteen were against it.

Following the council move, the Ranked Ballot Initiative of Toronto sent a petition with over eight thousand signatures to the provincial government, endorsing the council motion and requesting swift action on electoral reform. The Liberal MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood, Mitzie Hunter introduced the Toronto Ranked Ballots Election Act in March 2014; the bill died prematurely when the Ontario election was called. In the wake of substance abuse allegations against Rob Ford, the possibility of reversing the 1998 amalgamation of Toronto was raised. Incumbent mayor Rob Ford, ran in Ward 2 after withdrawing from the mayoral election for health reasons, his nephew, Michael Ford, was elected as TDSB trustee. Incumbent Peter Leon did not run. Incumbent Gloria Lindsay Luby did not run for re-election. Incumbent James Maloney did not run for re-election. Incumbent Karen Stintz was running for Mayor but dropped out and declared she would not be running for council. Incumbent Ceta Ramkhalawansingh did not run.

She was appointed in 2014 to replace Adam Vaughan who resigned and was elected to the Canadian Parliament. Incumbent Mike Del Grande did not run for re-election to Council, but ran for the Ward 7 Toronto Catholic School Board seat and replaced his son, John Del Grande, who did not run for re-election after holding the seat for 11 years.
