Toronto Raptors’ Only Public Training Session in Burnaby Sells Out in 90 Minutes

Fans eager to catch the Raptors in Burnaby this week faced disappointment as tickets for the public training session at SFU’s West Gym sold out rapidly. The session was part of the team’s preparations for the NBA Canada Series game on October 8, 2023, at Rogers Arena.

The demand was so high that all tickets were snapped up within 90 minutes of becoming available on September 6 at 10 a.m. The West Gym, with a capacity of 1,600, couldn’t accommodate everyone.

Proceeds from ticket sales, priced between $20 and $40, will support SFU Athletics General Fund, benefiting varsity teams and programs.

The Raptors will conduct two more training sessions in Burnaby, on October 3 and October 7, but these will be closed to the public. The team’s visit to Burnaby marks their return to B.C. after five years and the eighth exhibition game in the province’s history.

Toronto will face the Sacramento Kings at Rogers Arena in Vancouver on October 8 at 5 p.m.
