BEXAR COUNTY (KTSA News) — There won’t be any fans in the stands at AT&T Center in the near future for San Antonio Spurs games.
The team announced Monday that it will continue to play in an empty arena for its home games. It played without fans Saturday night during the teams home opener.
“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.”
Saturday’s game was the first official game the Spurs played at AT&T Center since the NBA suspended play last season at the start of the pandemic and finished the season in a “bubble” in the Orlando area.
