Huge lineups in Toronto for new OVO Raptors Championship merch
Raptors fans may be the most dedicated sports fans out there. Host any Raptors-related event and there they are, in hoards, no matter the line.
In early June, fans lined up to get their hands on the first championship merchandise. And now, they're doing it again.
Fans have been stationed at Real Sports Apparel inside Scotiabank Arena since yesterday to get their hands on the new Raptors OVO Championship merch.
And the line is never-ending.

These dedicated fans are in it for the long-haul, and they've made themselves comfortable with camping chairs and coolers.

The line was already unbearably long by the middle of last night.
The lineup for the OVO x Raptors hat and shirt drop this morning is insane. Extending from Gate 1, up Bremner to York, up York to the Go Station entrance, then back around down to Brenner again.

But some are complaining of poor planning and disorganization, just like previous Raptors events in the city.
@RealSports currently has a mob of like 500+ people at the doors to enter the building! Piss poor planning and really dangerous not worth the ovo×Raptors merch! It went from a nice orderly line to this! 🤦♀️ pic.twitter.com/GNKvuPtPPk— Chelsea (@Ilovecanada) June 28, 2019
Some are saying the lines are so long, it literally looks like a parade.
At this rate, it looks like every Raptors fan in the city will soon be sporting the new gear. If they ever get to the front of the line, that is.
