Basketball Equipment & Backstops for Toronto Raptors NBA Practice Facility
The BioSteel Centre is the new state of the art facility for the Toronto Raptors. Located on the Exhibition Grounds, it will be the home of training & development as well as the team’s front office personnel. The BioSteel Centre features two full size regulation courts, two Forum F850 Ceiling Mounted Basketball Backstops, and four Spalding NBA Portable Basketball Backstops.
Forum Athletic is extremely proud and honoured to be chosen as the preferred supplier of Basketball Backstops for this project. Partnering alongside Spalding, we have built a great relationship that will open new doors for high end facilities such as this one. Being selected is a direct reflection of our quality products and commitment to supplying Basketball Backstops for elite levels of play.
“Our vision for the Raptors is to build a championship contender that represents our city, our entire country and our fans with great pride and is ‘world-class’ in every way and Masai is certainly helping the team make great strides towards that goal,” said MLSE Chairman of the Board, Larry Tanenbaum. “The opening of BioSteel Centre is an important part of that vision. It is a development home for the team and will give them the tools they need to continue building on its progress of the past two years. We are very thankful to BioSteel, and all of the Raptors partners, as well as our fans, for their tremendous support.”
Ellis Don Construction was the general contractor for the construction of the BioSteel Centre, with Guernsey Architects as the architect and Baldwin & Franklin as supporting architects.
