After spending last season in Tampa, Fla., the Toronto Raptors are set to return to Scotiabank Arena on Oct. 20 against the Washington Wizards. It's the moment fans have been waiting for.
However, tickets for the big game cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars and supporters of the team are extremely frustrated.

While an increase in ticket prices , especially since the Raptors haven’t played a regular-season home game since Feb. 28, 2020 against the Charlotte Hornets, it seems fans have trouble justifying the steep asking price.

Kyrie Irving should donate the money he’s forfeiting this season to Raptors fans in Canada so they can afford tickets to home games.

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment that the Raptors and Maple Leafs would be allowed to play in front of a full crowd at Scotiabank Arena, which holds a total of 19,800. That is, if they can find that many fans willing to pay up.
