The Toronto Raptors will finally return to Scotiabank Arena for the first time in 19 months after a season spent playing in Florida.
A team spokesperson confirmed to TSN on Friday that the team had been given the go-ahead to play in the 6ix, but word is still out on how many fans will be able to attend.

"We are optimistic regarding our ability to host full capacity events at Scotiabank Arena," the spokesperson said.
The Raptors are scheduled to make their long-awaited return to their home court on October 4, 2021, for a pre-season bout against the 76ers.
"And as a reminder, all people wishing to access the arena — whether to attend an event as a spectator, or as a member of the media — will be required to show proof of vaccination for COVID-19 or proof of a medical exemption," the spokesperson added.
