Raptors Celebrate 20th Anniversary Nights
Team to wear original purple jersey from inaugural season.
The Toronto Raptors will play host to the Washington Wizards this Friday, November 7 in the first of seven 20th Anniversary Nights presented by Air Canada. The team will wear the original road purple jersey for the first time since May 4, 1999.
All fans in attendance at Friday’s game will receive a special edition throwback purple t-shirt, which features the names of every player in team history designed within the claw logo. Former Raptors Alvin Williams and Antonio Davis will also be on hand to help kick-off the anniversary celebrations. Four Raptors alumni will be featured with a bobble-head giveaway throughout the season.
Starting Friday the first 75 season seats sold will include a free purple Raptors jersey with the purchase. There are 400 season seats remaining for this year.
