As the Covid-19 pandemic seems to be slowly coming to an end, Toronto’s sports teams have begun stirring up the most hype since the entire nation came to a halt early last year. While the Leafs did their best to make it through the first round of the playoffs, the Blue Jays have begun their season with a great start and Toronto FC plays their first games out of town. Although it doesn’t seem like large gatherings will be taking place anytime soon, fans have loyally continued to cheer on their favourite team in many covid friendly ways.

Despite the pandemic restrictions, here are some ways to support your favourite Toronto sports teams
Online Viewing Parties
Virtually grab your friends and family because it’s game night! Use your devices to bring yourself just a little closer to those you’ve been wishing to see all pandemic. 2021 was a year full of online transitioning for many workplaces, and it’s for this reason that there are many ways to enjoy live sports online with loved ones. Seeing each other’s faces through an 18 inch screen at the maximum is not ideal, but when your team scores the game winning point and the cheers of your favourite people fill the room, it’ll definitely be worth it. So get ready to turn on your webcam and grab some drinks in preparation for the games to come! Download some free video software from Google here!
Team Logo Face Masks
Whether you like it or not, face masks have become a part of everyday life since the dawn of the pandemic. Some people even believe that they’re here to stay and as time goes on, this begins to look like it may be likely. Face masks can be considered an essential piece of apparel which are constantly on display for everyone to see. For this reason, there is no better piece of clothing to rep your favourite team’s logo on. Show your support everywhere you go as your sports themed mask remains on display in the workplace, public transit, and essential stores. Check out this Esty shop where you can buy your masks from a local Canadian seller.
Social Media Reposting
The online world has become a vast everchanging place that is constantly overlooked by its users. While so much information is constantly being transferred from one screen to the next, we’re all guilty of unconsciously scrolling through our feed. Does anyone REALLY look through all of their Instagram stories anymore? Regardless, social media remains a revolutionary tool for communication and propaganda. This includes the support of Toronto sports teams. If everyone in the city tweeted, snapped, or posted a pic of their expectations for Toronto’s victory on game night, that would be over two million uploads! Former Leaf Doug Gilmour has been encouraging fans to do just that as he urges everyone to “paint social media Blue & White”!
Although the possibility of victory parades are still up in the air, by showing your support for Toronto sports teams in covid friendly ways you are making an effort to stay positive! As the covid numbers continue to dwindle, the future looks bright for Toronto and hopeful for a full return to sports.
