The Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors have BOTH clinched playoff spots in the same year for the first time in what feels like FOREVER!  People have been wondering though, what’s going to happen to Maple Leafs Square / Jurassic Park? How will we get to watch both teams?!?

MLSE announced in a press release today all their plans on how to divide up Maple Leafs Square. Whether you want to be a part of the sea of blue or the sea of red, there’ll be chances for you to cheer your team, or both, for every game. MLSE explained:


– From game to game, Air Canada Centre will become a playoff hub for whichever team is playing at home. If the Leafs or Raptors are playing within the arena, the tailgate party in Maple Leaf Square will also be dedicated exclusively to that team;

– Both the Leafs and Raptors will host tailgate parties for away games, provided the other team is not playing a home game at the same time;

– If both teams play on the same day at different times, Maple Leaf Square will transition from one team’s tailgate party to the other after the first game of the day has concluded;

– If both teams play away games on the same day, at the same time, the Bremner Board will feature a split screen broadcast with both games shown simultaneously;

– If two games are being shown, Maple Leaf Square will also feature additional, smaller support screens.




So get your gear ready Torontonians, we’re gonna do plenty of cheering this spring.
