SALT LAKE CITY (October 3, 2012) – Utah Jazz fans will have their first opportunity to see the 2012-13 squad when the team holds its annual intrasquad scrimmage at EnergySolutions Arena on Saturday, October 6 at 4 p.m. MT. The free event is open to the public (no tickets required). Doors will open at 3:15 p.m. Jazz radio broadcaster David Locke will hold a brief Q&A on the court with each individual Jazz player so that fans can “meet the team.” The scrimmage will begin immediately after the interview session.

Due to the high volume of traffic expected downtown on Saturday, fans are encouraged to take public transportation to the scrimmage.

The open scrimmage concludes training camp and the team will begin the preseason schedule on October 8 at Golden State. The Jazz will open the home portion of its preseason schedule on October 12 vs. Oklahoma City for the first of three home preseason games. The regular season tips off on Halloween night (October 31) when the Jazz hosts Western Conference-rival the Dallas Mavericks.
