The Raptors Bring Home The NBA Trophy On Monday & You Can Win Home Opener Tickets

The Raptors' title defence begins Tuesday night.

After winning Toronto's very first NBA Championship, it's safe to say Canada will be celebrating for a while yet. The Toronto Raptors Trophy Tour is arriving back in the city, and you'll have the chance to relive the excitement all over again. The Milk Up tour will make stops in two other nearby cities before it ends in Toronto on Monday, October 21, and you can win tickets to the team's home opener the following night.

The Raptors raise the curtain on their NBA title defence this Tuesday, October 22, with a home opener clash against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Ahead of the new season beginning, the team has been touring the Larry O'Brien trophy around several cities across Ontario.

As tweeted by the Raptors, fans in London will be able to see the Larry O'B this Saturday, October 19, at the Covent Garden Market. The tour will then move onto Kitchener for the penultimate stop, where you can catch the trophy at THEMUSEUM on October 20.

The Raptors will then bring the trophy home to the 6ix on Monday night, October 21, setting up in Nathan Phillips Square on the eve of the home opener to ring in the new season.

And it's not just the chance to celebrate the Raptors incredible achievement some more. At every tour stop, fans have the chance to enter to win a pair of tickets to the home opener vs. the Pelicans at Scotiabank Arena. Before that game begins, the Raptors will be hoisting their championship banner and players will be receiving their championship rings. It promises to be an iconic and historic night, and you can be there!

What's more, in partnership with Dairy Farmers of Ontario, fans can double their chances of winning the tickets by simply bringing along proof of purchase of a milk product dated within the last seven days of the stop, according to the press release.

These stops in London, Kitchener, and Toronto conclude the nine-stop tour across Ontario that started at the beginning of this month in Ottawa.

This tour is absolutely free to attend, and fans can participate in activities, win some sweet prizes and walk away with some chocolate milk, what's better than that?

If you need any more reason to love the Raps, a championship movie will be coming out soon for fans to enjoy, even with some extras and bloopers from Kyle Lowry.

The Toronto Raptors recently showed their love for the Leafs at their puck drop, and now it's time for the city to welcome back the team that gave it their all. 

There's a reason why Lowry loves Toronto so much, and the fan support is a big factor. Get your Raptors gear ready and head over to Nathan Philips Square on October 21 for the night-before party. Go show some love!
