It goes without saying that Drake is huge sports fan, which is evident from ESPN choosing to have him host the ESPYs this year. Of course, being from Toronto, he is all about supporting the teams from his home city. In 2013, he was officially announced as the Global Ambassador for the Toronto Raptors. Speaking on the occasion he said, "today's probably one of the best days of my life...I got to throw on the suit and be announced as the Global Ambassador of the Toronto Raptors. I can't wait to add everything I can." It’s clear to see that Drizzy is as hands-on as he can be when we all witnessed pictures of him at the NBA playoffs. His influence is pretty large-- the Raptors created Drake-branded lint-rollers after he needed to get some fluff off his pants during the match.
Another NBA team he is also very fond of is Miami Heat. Drake has developed links with the Kentucky Wildcats, and is good friends with John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and Coach John Calipari who even gave the rapper a custom ring.
When it comes to ice hockey, Drake is devout fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Growing up, he even played a little hockey at the position of right-wing. But after being injuring his neck, his mother refused to let him play again.
The rapper is also a big Toronto Blue Jays fan. You may remember that the video for his track “Headlines” was filmed at the home stadium of the Blue Jays, the Rogers Centre.
Drake's sport interests don't stop there. He has also taken an interest in soccer. He's been seen mingling with teams in the English Premier League including hanging out with Chelsea’s Didier Drogba and Mario Balotelli.
