The RTZ came together when fellow Raptors fanatics, Natasha Alibhai, and Joel Reilly approached the team to see if they were interested in an idea where we brought together fans and gave them a voice. With the rapid integration of social media and sports these days the perfect opportunity presented itself to create stimulating conversation between some of the most rabid NBA fans around. This community of Raptors fans has banded through Twitter as well as Facebook. Using the hashtag #RTZ, this like minded community was formed to support our Toronto Raptors and for the first time ever, the team has been kind enough to let us host a social media night at a game. Tomorrow night at 6:00pm, we want true Raptors fans to unite as one for our first #RTZ Tweetup.
The first 30 people to purchase tickets (Passcode: RTZ) will be welcomed courtside for pregame shoot around. Postgame, all attendees will be invited for a meet and greet with a Raptors player. Each purchased ticket also gives you a RTZ t-shirt, a chance to win tickets at a future game, a chance to be moved to platinum seats during the game and lots of giveaways.
So act quickly because the big day is tomorrow. As an individual who was fortunate to join the RTZ crew for a game this season, I can tell you that you'll really enjoy yourself and met some great people as well as hardcore fans in the process.
