The NBA’s San Antonio Spurs’ season opener took place in the newly renovated AT&T Center. The Spurs games against the Brooklyn Nets took place on October 30, and showcased the arena’s US$110m investment in technology and infrastructure renovations.
Major renovations to the arena’s infrastructure and technology began on May 3 and more than 1,900 workers exceeded 780,000 man-hours throughout the project.
The venue improvements include all new seating arena-wide and expanded and updated concourses, as well as enhancements to the arena entrances. The new, brighter look features modern decor and enhanced lighting, accentuated by splashes of color via artwork curated from artists in San Antonio and throughout the state of Texas.
“This was a substantial project in a condensed timeline,” said Lori Warren, Spurs Sports & Entertainment SVP of corporate finance and strategy, in a statement on the Spurs’ website.
“It could not have been completed without the selfless collaboration of all those involved. The end result is a first-class facility that the community can really be proud of and we’re excited for fans to experience the all-new AT&T Center.”
