The San Antonio Spurs announced today that all fans attending the season opener vs. the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. will receive commemorative NBA Championship rings courtesy of H-E-B and BBVA Compass. Prior to the game, the defending NBA Champions will unveil their fifth championship banner and Spurs players and coaches will receive their NBA Championship rings. The pre-game ceremonies will start at approximately 6:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to arrive early for the pre-game festivities and doors to the AT&T Center will open at 5 p.m. on opening night to accommodate the earlier start time.
The commemorative NBA Championship rings feature the iconic Spur logo on the front and the team’s 2013-14 regular and post-season records above the NBA logo on the left panel. The opposite panel is etched with a replica of the Larry O’Brien trophy with five studs, representing each of the Spurs’ five championships. The giveaway is limited to one commemorative ring per ticketed guest and is ONE SIZE ONLY for all.
The regular season opener will also feature a special performance by the Spazmatics, the popular 80's new wave cover band, at WARM UP and OVERTIME. WARM UP, the official Spurs pregame party at the Bud Light Courtyard allows fans a chance to skip the lines so they can enjoy live music, food trucks, interactive activities and Bud Light Spurs Hour drink specials.
In the spirit of the season, masters of the macabre from the 13th Floor, San Antonio's legendary haunted house, will decorate the Bud Light Courtyard at WARM UP with ghost, ghouls, zombies and other creatures that go bump in the night. The Halloween theme will continue at halftime with a performance on center court by the Silver Dancers, Team Energy and some scary special guests.
Following the final buzzer on opening night, fans can also enjoy live music and drink specials at OVERTIME in the Bud Light Courtyard. OVERTIME is the place to be following Spurs home games and is held after every Thursday, Friday and Saturday game at the AT&T Center.
