NBA's Toronto Raptors forced to leave Canada to begin season in Florida

토론토 랩터스는 고향 팬들 앞에서 다가오는 NBA 시즌을 시작하지 않을 것입니다..

캐나다와 미국 간의 Covid-19 여행 제한으로 인해, 랩터는 2020-21 시즌 playing home games in Tampa, 플로리다. It’s not too far from Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, where the NBA completed the 2019-20 season in a bubble.
Masai Ujiri, the team’s president of basketball operations, said the Raptors worked with Canadian public health officials at the local, provincial and federal level to develop a plan that would allow the team to play the 2020-21 season at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
“궁극적으로, the current public health situation facing Canadians, combined with the urgent need to determine where we will play means that we will begin our 2020-21 season in Tampa, 플로리다,” Ujiri said.
    7 월, the Canadian government denied permission for Major League Baseball’s Toronto Blue Jays to host games at their home ballpark Rogers Centre in Toronto due to similar travel restrictions. The Blue Jays played their home games at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, 뉴욕, during the shortened 2020 baseball season.
    No other details were disclosed, including how long the Raptors plan to stay in Florida or where the team will stay, practice, or host games in Tampa.
    We commit to continuing our work together, planning for a safe return to play in Toronto,” Ujiri said. “And as an organization, we remain committed to doing all we can to promote and demonstrate public health measures to help combat the spread of COVID-19 in Canada.
      CNN has reached out to the league for comment.
      The NBA’s 75th regular season, shortened to 72 games for each team, is set to tipoff on Tuesday, December 22.
