The Toronto Raptors will play their next home games without fans in attendance amid another Covid-19 outbreak.

As revealed on Thursday, the Raptors have limited the capacity of Scotiabank Arena to just 1,000 fans. However, the team announced they will not sell any tickets for the coming games.

“Following the province’s announcement today which further limits venue capacities, MLSE venues, including Scotiabank Arena for upcoming Toronto Maple Leaf and Raptors games and other events, will transition to operating without any sold tickets effective Friday, December 31 except for league and team requirements up to 1,000 per game as we continue to work together in the fight against COVID-19,” Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment announced, via NBA.com.

These limits will be in place for the next three weeks, therefore the franchise will play its coming home games behind closed doors. The Toronto Raptors currently are 11th in the East, at 14-17.
