Toronto Argos Celebrate Raptors Run With Jersey Patch

We The Six.

The Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League took to the field this morning to kick off their 2019 pre-season schedule and did so paying much respect to another Toronto team ready to make some history.

In tribute to the Toronto Raptors first appearance in the NBA Finals, the Argos added a Raptors “WE THE NORTH” flag patch to the front right side of their jersey. They’ll wear the special patch today against Montreal and again for their second and final pre-season game on June 6th versus the Ti-Cats at Hamilton.

Today’s game is also the Argos first with their new uniform design, revealed just one week ago along with the rest of the CFL. The new Argos uniform does away with the sleeve striping and adds a lighter shade of blue to the player numbers.

The Raptors launched their “We The North” slogan in April 2014 in recognition of being the only Canadian team in the otherwise all-U.S. based National Basketball Association.
