The Toronto Raptors announced Tuesday they will play an intra-squad scrimmage in the Casino Rama Entertainment Centre on Sunday, October 28 at 1 p.m. The scrimmage will be a final tune-up for the club as it prepares for the 2012-13 season opener.
Limited tickets are available only at the Casino Rama Box Office. A suggested donation of $25 per ticket to the MLSE Team Up Foundation is recommended. The event will also feature appearances from Raptor the Mascot and the Raptors Dance Pak.
This marks the first time Casino Rama, official sponsor of the Toronto Raptors, has held a basketball event in its entertainment complex. In the past, it has showcased other sports such as TSN Curling Skins, Rock & Roll Gymnastic Tour featuring United States and Canadian Olympians, tennis matches featuring John McEnroe, world-title boxing matches, Bellator MMA and even the Chinese Table Tennis Team.
