Toronto can watch the Pan Am Games the same way it watches any other big sporting event: with large groups in front of wide screens.

Toronto has set up 10 public viewing sites for the Games across the city. Large screens have been set up at community centres, public libraries and other venues to broadcast the events.

The sites "give residents the opportunity to get together as a community to watch the Games and cheer on the athletes," the city said in the news release.

"Toronto is coming alive with Pan Am Games excitement," Mayor John Tory said.

The mayor says the viewing sites, part of the host city showcase program, provides a "wonderful opportunity to celebrate the spirit of the games" through different communities and cultures that will "leave a lasting legacy for the city."
