It’s no secret that Drizzy Drake goes hard for his city, and his newest collaboration has secured his spot as Toronto’s biggest fan. The Toronto Raptors announced that they have officially renamed their training facility the “OVO Athletic Centre,” after Drake’s October’s Very Own brand. Clearly, the team is not afraid of the “Drake Curse” that had Twitter in a frenzy back in January.

The Champagne Papi expressed his excitement by announcing the building on his Instagram.

Drizzy has been a team ambassador for the Raptors since 2013, and even has his own locker in the Scotiabank Arena lockeroom. They will also be releasing an OVO-inspired practice jersey for fans to purchase later this year.

The basketball franchise stated that they were always looking for creative ways to make the Canadian rapper “more intertwined with their team,” and this has proved as the biggest step in doing so. The building, formerly known as the BioSteel Centre, now sports the signature gold OVO owl alongside the Raptor’s basketball logo on the front of the building.

The Raptors also shared a sneak peak of the facility on their Twitter.
