TORONTO (May 11, 2016) – When the NBA Toronto Raptors selected Connor Sports to provide the court for the team’s new BioSteel Centre practice facility, a premium was placed on providing optimum comfort for the players during a grueling NBA season.
The BioSteel Centre practice facility was dedicated during NBA All Star Weekend in Toronto. Fast forward to tonight’s Game 5 match-up vs. the Miami Heat in Toronto and the Raptors, and the Connor Sports VIP surface has played a large role in helping the team stay as fresh as possible during a season that saw the Raptors win a franchise-record 56 wins in the regular season and advance to the second round of the NBA Playoffs.
“Connor Sports is extremely proud to have provided a Champions of Sport court solution for the team’s new BioSteel Centre training facility,” said Jon Isaacs, President and GM for Connor Sports. “The installation of two side-by-side Connor Sports VIP surfaces at the facility ensures maximum performance and resiliency to allow the Raptors’ players to stay as fresh as possible throughout the grueling NBA regular season and now a lengthy playoff run.”
“Our vision for the Raptors is to build the team into a championship contender that represents our city, our entire country and our fans with great pride and is ‘world-class’ in every way,” said Toronto Raptors President and General Manager Masai Ujiri. “The BioSteel Centre is an important part of that vision. It is a development home for the team and will give it the tools we need to continue building on our progress as a franchise. We are thankful to Connor Sports for the role they played in helping make the BioSteel Centre a reality.”
