It’s an exciting time to be a hockey fan in Toronto! The Maple Leafs tailgate parties have expanded in size to give more fans the chance to enjoy the action as the team battles it out in round two of the NHL playoffs.
Maple Leaf Square now has an additional viewing zone where fans can watch both home and away games throughout the team’s playoff run against the Florida Panthers.
The extension runs along Bremner Boulevard from York Street to Lower Simcoe Street, with two additional big screens to enjoy the game.
Fans can also expect on-stage programming with special guests, giveaways, a live DJ, and all of the wild playoff energy that you can handle.
There are even retailers on-site selling snacks, drinks, and alcohol for fans to enjoy.
Access to the Leafs tailgate parties is free, but you’ll have to be required to register for a free mobile pass via the NHL team’s app.
The passes become available at 1 PM EST the day before each game and you can only register for four tickets maximum per game.
And if you’re really keen to snag passes, you can get early access by signing up to be a Maple Leafs Insider on the app.
The designated viewing zone will be displayed on your mobile pass and these are assigned first come, first served.
Fans with a Zone 1 pass will enter the Tailgate at York and Bremner. Fans with a new Zone 2 pass will enter through Lower Simcoe and Bremner.
And if you don’t manage to secure a pass, don’t sweat it — there are tons of incredible spots to watch the Leafs’ playoff games in Toronto.
We’ll see you at the big game, Toronto!
