Toronto Raptors’ practice facility named after Drake’s OVO

Drake Raptors

The association between Drake and the Toronto Raptors continues to grow.

Drake, a Toronto native, has been a global ambassador for the Raptors since 2013. He is often seen at the team’s games (sometimes getting into it with opponents) and has helped with the team’s image and branding. Now he’s taking things further.

According to TSN Raptors reporter Josh Lewenberg, the Raptors are renaming their practice facility the “OVO Athletics Training Centre.” He says Drake will have a key to the facility now.

Here is a look at the facility, which has the OVO owl logo on it.

OVO is an acronym that stands for “October’s Very Own,” which is Drake’s birth month. The rapper’s record label and clothing line are both OVO-branded. And now so is the Raptors’ practice facility.
