The Toronto Raptors have confirmed they’re headed back to the Scotiabank Arena in Canada after playing all of their home games in Tampa Bay, Florida last season.

The 2019 NBA champions have not played in their own arena since hosting the Charlotte Hornets on February 28, 2020, but will be playing their first game back against the Philadelphia 76ers on October 4, confirming as much with the release of a pre-season schedule on Friday.

The team will hope to bounce back after finishing last in the Atlantic Division last term but will also have to deal with losing star point guard Kyle Lowry in a trade to the Miami Heat.
