Hey Prepsters,

My friends at Mastercard and I teamed up to help my sister experience her first ever live Raptors game and to offer you all a chance to take a Raptors fan in your life to their first game as well.

I remember my first game like it was yesterday! I went to see the Raptors with a couple of my friends in January 2014 and they played the Indiana Pacers! It was just so exciting to see the players in real time! So when I was able to partner with Mastercard to take my older sis to her first game, I was super excited and so was she!

Growing up, my older siblings were always the ones who took me to my first experiences, so it was just a really fun way for us to bond and hang out while making some new family memories together. My parents had a rule when we were kids, where we could only leave the house if we were accompanied by  a sibling. Throughout my childhood, my sister used to take me on different adventures like going to the mall every Friday after school and sometimes to watch a movie as well. One of my fave movies was The Lion King and I swear, we would go to the local library’s movie theatre everytime it played. She used to pay for all my treats and popcorn, so she was the first person I thought of to take to the Raptors game with me for her first time experience.

Sara was super stoked because not only was it her first game, but we also had courtside seats right behind the Brooklyn Nets. It was surreal for her to step onto the court and see the bright lights all around us, hear the cheers, and see the players on the court. We loved that we could even hear how the coach and the team would interact together.

There’s an energy at the Scotiabank Arena during the Raptors game that I feel like is unparalleled to other events in the city! You can see how pumped everyone is to share their love of basketball and enjoy the game with their loved ones. I love seeing people come together to support our home team and show our love for Toronto!
