The Toronto Raptors will play pre-season games in Vancouver and Montreal this year.

Toronto will tangle with the Portland Trail Blazers on Sept. 29 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver and then will square off with the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 10 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

It will mark the fifth NBA pre-season game in Montreal and the fourth in Vancouver as part of the NBA Canada Series, now in its sixth year.

Tickets go on sale on July 14.

“One of the many great things about being Canada’s team is that we get a chance to bring the game we love to different parts of the country, and to connect with our fans, whose support is so important to us throughout the season,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri said in a statement.

“It’s also an opportunity for us to enjoy these spectacular cities – we’re really looking forward to our time in Vancouver and Montreal.
