Toronto Raptors Tickets
Toronto Raptors are a basketball team of the National Basketball Association who belong to the Eastern Conference in the Atlantic Division. Established in 1995 alongside Vancouver Grizzlies, the team was part of the expansion of NBA into Canada. After the grizzlies moved to Memphis in 2001, becoming Memphis Grizzlies, the Raptors were left as the only Canada-based NBA team. The Raptors initially played at their home ground at SkyDome until they relocated to Air Canada Centre in 1999. The team struggled in its beginning years, until 1998 when through a draft day trade it acquired Vince Carter, who helped in setting records for the league’s attendance, making the team enter the playoffs in from 2000 to 2002. Carter’s role was pivotal in making the team attain forty-seven strong wins, and the 2001 playoff series victory because of which the team finally entered the semi finals of the Eastern Conference. Since then the team has enjoyed a vast fan base, making Toronto Raptors tickets a real treat for basketball lovers.
Toronto Raptors currently play at the Air Canada Centre, which is an indoor, multi-purpose arena in Downtown Toronto, and is known as the Hangar or the ACC. The arena opened in 1999 with a construction cost of two hundred and sixty-five million dollars, and was designed by architect Brisbin Brook Beynon. The arena has revolutionized several concepts regarding sports stadiums, such as dividing the scoreboard into different sections, connecting luxury suites to the ground floor, and creating many restaurants inside and outside the arena’s bowl view. With a seating capacity of nineteen thousand, eight hundred for basketball, the ACC was reported to be the eleventh busiest stadium of the world in 2006.
In the seasons of 2002-03 and 2003-5, Toronto Raptors failed in making much progress so that Carter was exchanged in 2004 with the New Jersey Nets. Chris Bosh then came in as the leader, but this did not change the team’s struggling situation. With Bryan Colangelo becoming the new General Manager and Raptors President of the team, the draft selection of Andrea Bargani for NBA’s overall performance, alongside revamp of 2006-07 season roster, the team finally attained the qualification for a playoff in five years, and ended up grabbing the title of the Atlantic Division by winning forty-seven games. In the following season they progressed to the playoffs yet again but could not enter them in the next season of 2008-09. With Bosh signing with Miami Heat in mid-2010, the team is said to enter another era of the franchise.
