Dear Sixers Fan,
As you may know, the NBA has approved our purchase of the Philadelphia 76ers. We feel privileged to be connected to this storied team, and to the greatest sports city with the most passionate sports fans in America.
We sincerely want to thank Ed Snider and Comcast-Spectacor for choosing us to steward this precious sports franchise, and Peter Luukko and his executive team for their gracious assistance in the transition. It humbles us to know that over the course of the teamís history, the Philadelphia 76ers have the third most wins and third most playoff appearances of all thirty teams in the NBA. This clearly puts the 76ers in the NBA elite, and challenges us as we write a new chapter in Sixers lore.
We set out to be World Class and Cutting Edge in everything that the Sixers do.
In leading the Sixers, every step we make will be guided by three all-important principles:
- Give Philadelphia exciting and winning basketball. Under Head Coach Doug Collinsí inspired and intense leadership, our sights are set high.
- Make it fun to go to a Sixers game. You can expect a real happening on game nights, one that all your friends and neighbors will be talking about and which shouldnít be missed.
- Listen to our fans. After all, the Sixers are your team, and we think that the Sixers exist for only one reason - to give sheer pleasure to Philadelphia basketball fans.
When NBA basketball returns to Wells Fargo Center, let yourself fall in love with the Sixers. Watch and see progress unfold before your eyes. On behalf of our partners, who are basketball fans all the way, we can assure you that our ownership group is committed to making Philadelphia proud.
To Philadelphia sports fans, we say simply this. Hang on to your seats. Itís going to be quite a ride.
Josh Harris - Managing Owner & Adam Aron - Chief Executive Officer
