The San Antonio Spurs were considering opening up the arena to fans starting January 1st. Those plans have been pushed back due to COVID-19 cases in Bexar county rising.
“Welcoming fans back to the AT&T Center remains a major organizational priority for all of us,” said Spurs Sports & Entertainment CEO RC Buford. “While we are confident in the plans and protocols we have in place, we are uncomfortable hosting fans at this moment as the COVID-19 numbers and data in our community continue to trend in the wrong direction.”
Even though the AT&T Center has protocols in place and has made numerous designs to enhance safety and health protocols at the Spurs’ home arena. The SS&E are just playing it safe to keep our community healthy.
“It’s impossible to explain how much we miss seeing and hearing our fans,” said Buford. “We will continue to work tirelessly to do everything in our control to allow us to open our doors to our fans in a safe and timely manner.”
