The leader in community-driven hospitality services, Airbnb, is teaming up with Hockey Hall of Fame member and Toronto Maple Leafs legend Doug Gilmour and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE), to provide one winner and a guest an ultimate sports weekend experience at Air Canada Centre.
The winner and a guest will get special access to back-to-back games starting with a Leafs game against the Montreal Canadiens on January 23, 2016, spend the night in a customized suite in Air Canada Centre, and a Raptors game against the Los Angeles Clippers the next day.
Doug Gilmour will be on hand as the host for the experience which includes platinum tickets to see the Toronto Maple Leafs take on their historic rival, the Montreal Canadiens. Additionally, it includes an exclusive Maple Leafs pre-game experience with a behind-the-scenes tour of the venue, a shopping spree at Real Sports Apparel, access to the players’ amenities, a chance to watch the pre-game skate from the penalty box and a personalized player send-off in the Maple Leafs tunnel as the team takes the ice.
Before returning to their Airbnb suite for the night, the winner will also be invited to attend Head Coach Mike Babcock’s postgame press conference.
After spending the night in the customized Airbnb suite overlooking the lower bowl, the winner will take in the Raptors’ gameday shoot-around before wrapping up their experience, watching the Raptors take on the Clippers in courtside seats on January 24, 2016.
Airbnb will also be making a $15,000 donation to MLSE Foundation, a charitable organization that helps get kids involved in sports in their community. The donation will support the Sport For Development Centre, a 42,000 square foot youth-focussed centre located in the Moss Park neighbourhood of Toronto.
