To be revealed are the intra-squad game prices, how to get the tickets and volunteer opportunities.

The game is part of the Raptors training camp of Victoria from Sept. 26 to 29 in the new $70 million CARSA facility.

Aside from the intra-squad game on Sept. 28, all other practice sessions will be closed to the public though some access will be given through local partnerships (coaching clinics, etc.).

It’s the fourth consecutive year the Raptors will hold training camp in B.C. and fifth time overall.
