Spurs to become 15th NBA team to allow reduced crowds at home
The San Antonio Spurs released the following statement regarding their plans to admit reduced crowds into AT&T Center:
“We are thrilled to welcome our fans back to the AT&T Center,” said RC Buford, Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO. “We’ve always said we have the best fans in the NBA and playing in an empty arena has reminded us all of how fortunate we are to enjoy the amazing support we receive from our fans. We can’t wait to see, hear and engage with our fans again starting March 12.
For the last 10 months our team has been laser focused on implementing heightened health and safety measures, concentrating on three key areas, people, surfaces and air,” said AT&T Center General Manager Casey Heverling. “The entire organization has gone above and beyond to make sure that the AT&T Center is a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone in attendance.”
This will mark the first time the Spurs have had fans in their arena since March 10th, 2020. With the vaccine becoming more effective, and more available, we will continue to see more teams allow reduced crowds in the near future.
