NBA 2019: a first for the Toronto Raptors and Downtown Montreal

This year, the Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship and Montrealers celebrated all reunited in Montreal Downtown screaming We The North.

The Toronto Raptors’ victory against the Golden State Warriors has been one of the greatest sport event for Montrealers, know as big basketball fans, who have rallied together for a first time in downtown Montreal.

Last Monday and Thursday two emotional evenings took place and Downtown welcomed around 15,000 basketball fans on Peel Street and Crescent Street, closed to traffic for the occasion.

A big result that could not have been possible without the commitment of several partners.

Driven by the passion and the desire to bring together Montreal Raptors fans, they plunged into this adventure and achieved a veritable tour de force in just 24 hours of notice. A special thanks to the two promoters, Impact Media and XP_MTL, who organized these two unforgettable nights on Peel Street and Crescent Street.

The transformation of the downtown area into an open-air sports arena was supported by Sun Life, City of Montreal, Tourisme Montréal, the Crescent Street Merchants Association and Destination Centre-Ville.

We already think about next year and, above all, We The North!
