Maple Leaf Square will not be renamed Ford Square after all


WATCH: Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment is clarifying an announcement it made last week about a popular gathering spot for Leafs and Raptors fans.

TORONTO – Don’t worry Toronto. Maple Leaf Square will not be called Ford Square after all.

A report by the Toronto Star says Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. is denying it has ever considered renaming the area outside the Air Canada Centre after Ford Canada.

However, a sponsorship agreement with the motor company means a section of the space will be called The Ford Fan Zone at Maple Leaf Square instead.

An official announcement on the decision is expected later today.

The square is a key celebration location for Toronto Maple Leafs and Raptors fans.

Ford Canada is currently a sponsor of the Leafs, Raptors, and the Air Canada Centre which both teams play in.

WATCH: Representatives of both MLSE and the Ford Motor Company join Antony Robart to explain what fans can expect to see change at Maple Leafs Square in the future.
