Nav Bhatia
Toronto Raptors Superfan

Nav Bhatia’s vocation is selling cars. His avocation is the Toronto Raptors. And in many ways, the two are connected. Bhatia is the owner of the top Hyundai dealership in Canada with outlets in Mississauga and Rexdale – something he proudly proclaims in multi-media ads proclaiming he is No. 1 – but he is also the Raptors’ Super Fan.It’s a fascinating story of an immigrant who came to Canada from India, became a successful businessman through sheer determination and hard work, and is paying it forward through a passion for a sport he has never played.

The 62-year-old spends more than $300,000 a year on Raptors’ tickets, many of them given away to kids to enjoy sitting courtside, and sponsors events at home games that celebrate festivals of his Sikh religion. He is giving back to the community and the country that has given him so much, while also trying to help the mainstream population in North America learn more about his Indian identity and South Asians as a whole.
