But there s a catch.

The campaign, which was launched last year, saw the fast-food chain hand out millions of orders of free medium-sized French fries whenever the Raptors scored 12 three-pointers or more.

This year, fans can still get their hands on free fries, but theyll need to make a purchase first.

Fans across Canada (excluding Quebec) can score a free medium fries with any $1 minimum pre-tax purchase with the My McDs mobile app between 11 a.m. EST and 4 a.m. the following day at participating restaurants, McDonalds Canada said in a news release issued Tuesday.

We thought that we owed it to the expanded fan base to broaden Beyond the Arch to include even more provinces this season, so more fans can celebrate the Raptors success across Canada!

The Raptors are set to open the season at home Tuesday night against the New Orleans Pelicans, albeit without two of their three-pointer powerhouses Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.

Leonard and Green were signed to the Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers respectively during the offseason and were essential in securing the Raptors 2019 NBA championship.
