Drake & the Toronto Raptors: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

2. The Raptors Hold ‘Drake Night’ Annually


The Raptors have grabbed Drake’s fame by the horns ever since he was named the ambassador.

They held the fourth annual “Drake Night” in Toronto in 2016 when the Golden State Warriors came to town. With Drake in attendance, every fan was gifted a limited-edition shirt and he planned the halftime entertainment.

In a pregame press conference, he told Billboard how excited he gets for the annual promotional night.

“I like to think of Drake Night as the third true marker of the season starting,” he said. “So you get a real look at what the city has to offer as a fan base. We are a rowdy bunch. We are an extremely supportive bunch and I like to think that Drake Night gets that mentality started for the city.”

The first edition of “Drake Night” was held in 2014 against the Brooklyn Nets.
