The San Antonio Spurs have decided to continue to play without fans at the AT&T Center, the team announced on Monday. The Spurs will host the world-champion Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night.
“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.”
Over the last five months SS&E has made numerous updates designed to enhance health and safety protocols at the AT&T Center.
“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.”
