Thousands of fans will be a part of the (hopefully jubilant) ‘Northern
Uprising’ as they gather at near the Air Canada Centre in hopes the Toronto
Raptors can capture game five over the Brooklyn Nets.
Bigger and bigger crowds have flooded Maple Leaf Square, outside the
ACC, over the past four games – reportedly close to 4,500 for game four.
“The support for the Raptors this season in Toronto, and across Canada,
has highlighted the fact that this is one of the most passionate markets in the
NBA, and in my mind, this is just the first step in what we can accomplish,”
said Tim Leiweke, President and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, in
a release today.
“Together with our fans and our partners, we are working to build a
consistent playoff contender so that we can look forward to this electric
environment each and every year.”
The basketball club says that after this record-setting season, the team’s
appeal has soared.
Although they don’t play
until 7:30 p.m. ET tonight, fans have already begun sharing their excitement
online with #WeAreTheNorth and #NorthernUprising.
