Re: Raptors Training Camp to be held in Halifax
The Raptors are returning to Halifax.
On Thursday, the team made the long-expected announcement that it would hold training camp in Halifax Oct. 1-6, including an intra-squad game at the Halifax Metro Centre on the final day.
The first game in franchise history was played there on Oct. 14, 1995, when the Raptors defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 120-107 in pre-season action.
Pre-season games were played in Nova Scotia the following two years, but the Raptors have not been back since 1997.
