Good news for Toronto Raptors fans — and Drake — the team just announced they’ll be playing at home in 2021 after using Tampa as their home court for 19 months!!
Last season, the Raptors had to relocate to Tampa and play their home games in Amalie Arena due to Canada’s travel restrictions over COVID-19.
The team hasn’t played in their Scotiabank Arena since Feb. 28, 2020 — but just got the green light to play their preseason opener at home which starts on Oct. 4 against the Sixers.
The capacity limit is still up in the air and there is a COVID vaccination mandate.

“We are optimistic regarding our ability to host full capacity events at Scotiabank Arena,” the team said.
“And as a reminder, all people wishing to access the arena — whether to attend an event as a spectator, or as a member of the media — will be required to show proof of vaccination for COVID-19 or proof of a medical exemption.”
The Raptors season opener is Oct. 20 against the Wizards and it will be in their city of Toronto.
Home sweet home!!
