MLSE & Drake want to build a nightclub at the ACC

:jack:

Where would this be?

Also, they may buy the Argo's....

Other future plans include involving Raptors global ambassador and hip hop megastar Drake in more MLSE business. MLSE wants to create a nightclub at the Air Canada Centre and Drake “might be a partner in that,” Leiweke said.

I thought they were going to build a "world class" practice facility? Maybe the nightclub could go in the current practice facility once that's done?

Ahahahah, the stadium is already small as shit (on of the smaller stadiums for pro sports in north america) and n ow they want to add a pointless night club in it....That must have been a drake idea for sure.

Promo* Get tickets to the game, party at the club afterwards; drinks starting at $20/each! That'll get people in the door!

It will, have you gone to expensive nightclubs in the city? Still think it's stupid though. Besides, they don't need to "get people in the door" anyway.

So if they dont need to 'get people in the door' why build a night club in a sports stadium? This would be first and foremost a marking stunt to get people in the door.....

Why not? If you can get 19k people into the building on a consistent basis and then have some of them attend a club after.....$$$$. People are already going, this just gets them to spend more money. Now in the summer when both teams are not playing, then it's about getting more revenue. IMO this bodes well for them to make extra cash to absorb spending into the tax for the Raptors and spending like drunken sailors with TFC.

this probably falls out of a lot of your age groups and its probably not meant to appeal to you all. but when you look at the success of drake night.. this is a great idea, its adding to the "cool" factor.. its fun and its different. i love it.

it's way less about drake that it is a nightclub owned by MLSE.

Why would anyone with any sense of good taste want to go there?

Also I don't go to clubs anymore, but something also tells me that you and i would have gone out to polar opposite places. nothing wrong with that different strokes for different folks.

I think you'd be surprised with where i'd hang out. I know you don't like or respect me but where exactly do you think i'd hang out?


I am no Drake fan, but i have a feeling that a club like that would be very successful.

why would you say that then? I don't "not respect" you at all. I disagree with a lot of what you've said over the years basketball minded and otherwise, but i generally talk to people and respond to them in the same way they talk to me. I'm sure in your 60 000 moments of contribution here there are quite a few examples of disrespect.

True enough. Just the impression i always got whenever we've interacted. Much of that is mostly my own fault though.

Maybe, but i think it would succeed. People will go and hope to see players or Drake and if done properly it would work. It could go either way though, might look like a gimmick/money grab.
