Raptors may open practice facility at Exhibition Place


TORONTO – The Toronto Raptors might have a new practice facility in the near future.

Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment – the company that owns the Raptors – is currently in negotiations to build the team a new practice facility at Exhibition Place.

The building would be located in Lot 6 of Exhibition Place just north of Medieval Times.

The team currently practices at the Air Canada Centre where they also play their home games.

Three public meetings have been set up to discuss the proposal: the first will be a board meeting at Exhibition place on August 14, the second will be the city’s Executive Committee meeting on August 20 and the third will be at the regularly scheduled city council meeting on August 25 or August 26.
