The Raptors and the Leafs are celebrating their female fan base this March

Feb 13 2019, 11:54 pm

You may have heard of OVO nights at Raptors games, which are now called Welcome Toronto, and now, MLSE is focusing on one of its most powerful fan bases in the league.

The female fans.

This year, MLSE (Maple Leafs Sports & Entertainment) is introducing the Powered by Female Fans initiative, focused on the “amazing female fanbase” its teams have.

Whether it is the Toronto Raptors, Toronto Maple Leafs, or TFC, all teams have drawn female fans from all over the region.

There will be three games in March for each team focusing on the female fan base, and if you’re not already planning to be there, there’s a chance to win your way through.

To celebrate this new initiative, MLSE is looking for the biggest female fan of their teams.

MLSE launched the #PoweredByFemaleFans contest, which runs through to February 25, and those interested in winning tickets to the Powered by Female fan games would need to enter through the Raptors App explaining why they’re the biggest female fan, or to nominate someone else.

Besides being among a lively female crowd, these will be some epic games to attend, especially coming so close to the end of regular season for the Leafs and the Raps.

This year’s Powered by Females games include:

Toronto Raptors vs. Houston Rockets game
Date: March 5, 2019
Location: Scotiabank Arena
Time: 8 pm

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
