Toronto Raptors Training Facility Renamed the "OVO Athletic Centre"

The Toronto Raptors renamed their training facility to 'OVO Athletic Centre' in honour of Drake

The Toronto Raptors took another step in expanding their partnership with OVO and their Global Ambassador Drake on Thursday.

The facility, located on the grounds of Exhibition Place and which opened in conjunction with National Basketball Association all-star weekend in Toronto in February of 2016, was originally known as the BioSteel Centre before being renamed the Toronto Raptors Training Centre. "This new naming rights deal for our training facility is a flawless example of the strength of this partnership and the innovative opportunities it can generate".

Toronto is also celebrating the opening by dropping the OVO x Raptors Spring 2019 Collection, which is only available at their Scotiabank Arena for their next two home games. A limited amount will be available through a contest on the Raptors app, otherwise fans are encouraged to enter their name on waitlist to be notified when the jersey becomes available later this summer. But with his own space in both the Raptors home arena and their practice facility, it's safe to say the team's partnership with "The Boy" isn't going to fade away any time soon.

"Sports are central to the culture of OVO and have the great quality of connecting people from all walks of life", said OVO's Oliver El-Khatib.

It's far from the first collaboration between the franchise and the Toronto-born musician, who joined the organization in an official capacity as a global ambassador in September 2013.

He may not make it out to many games these days, but Drake's influence on the Toronto Raptors appears to be stronger now than ever before. His support has played a defining role in the team's image, as evidenced by the Raptors' OVO-themed uniforms they wear for their City Edition jerseys.
