Raptors preseason tickets go on sale at noon


For the first time in nearly two years, Toronto Raptors fans can start purchasing tickets to Raptors games at Scotiabank Arena.

Starting at noon, Raptors fans will be able to purchase tickets to Toronto’s two preseason home games, the first an Oct. 4 game against the Philadelphia 76ers and the second an Oct. 11 game against the Houston Rockets. These tickets will be listed for sale on Ticketmaster and delivered digitally in accordance with MLSE’s new COVID-19 health and safety measures.

All fans eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine must provide full proof of vaccination in order to enter the arena this season. Only people under the age of 12 or with a verified medical exemption will be exempt from the new COVID-19 measures. Additionally, all fans will be required to wear a three-ply mask at all times except when eating or drinking and a self-assessment must be completed prior to entry.

The capacity of the arena will be around 10,000, or about 50% of the arena’s capacity, in order for social distancing measures to be implemented.

The arena will also be completely cashless this season, meaning that only debit and credit cards will be accepted for purchases to allow for a quick and safe start.

Tickets for regular season games have yet to be posted on Ticketmaster.
