Purple & Teal Day will feature an Open Scrimmage, allowing fans to watch the Hornets players and coaches in action as they prepare for the upcoming season. The event will take place on Spectrum Center’s main court and feature appearances from Hugo and the Hive Entertainment teams. Attendees will also have the opportunity to win a number of exciting giveaways such as autographed items, visit the Hornets Fan Shop and enjoy the arena concessions. 

Doors will open at noon for Hive Society Members and 12:30 p.m. for the general public. The Open Practice will begin at 1 p.m. The first 5,000 fans in attendance will receive a PJ Washington bobblehead, and the first 500 kids to visit the Hornets Hoops booth on the concourse will receive a free Bee-Ball for All basketball.

As with all Hornets games and events at Spectrum Center, attendees must follow several important COVID-19 policies and protocols. In accordance with guidance from the CDC and local health officials, face masks covering both the nose and mouth are required for individuals at least 5 years of age, except when actively eating or drinking (neck gaiters, bandanas or masks with valves or vents are not permitted). Also, in an effort to eliminate shared touch points, all tickets will now be digital, and all concessions and retail transactions made within Spectrum Center will be cashless.
