Warriors vs Spurs game breaks NBA’s single game attendance record

The San Antonio Spurs set a new NBA record for single-game attendance on Friday night when they played host to the defending champion Warriors at the Alamodome. The franchise announced that they had sold 63,592 tickets for the game, already surpassing the previous mark of 62,046 for a Bulls-Hawks game at the Georgia Dome in 1998. The final number, announced by former Spurs player David Robinson, was 68,323 fans.

The Alamodome was the home of the Spurs from 1993 to 2002 before they moved to the AT&T Center. When the team was a full-time tenant in the dome, they only sold seats on one side of the football stadium and used a large curtain to block out the cavernous space remaining on the other side. The previous single-game attendance record for the Spurs was 39,554, set at Game 2 of the 1999 NBA Finals against the Knicks.

This new attendance record is a testament to the continued support of the Spurs community. It has been almost a decade since the team won its fifth NBA championship, but the franchise still clearly has the support of its fans.

The NBA attendance record for any event, including exhibitions, is 108,713. That mark was set at the 2010 All-Star Game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the NFL’s Cowboys. This shows that the Spurs’ new record for single-game attendance is still far from the highest in NBA history.

The support of the community and the fans is still strong for the Spurs, despite not winning an NBA championship in the last decade. This new record is a remarkable achievement for the team and the city, and it is exciting to see how far they can go in the future.
