Experience the All-New
SOMETHING NEW FOR EVERYONE
- Spurs Sports & Entertainment and Bexar County are spearheading a $100+ million renovation of the 12-year-old AT&T Center during the summer and fall of 2015 to create an entertainment experience that rivals other destinations throughout Texas and the nation.
- The AT&T Center is a point of pride for Bexar County and San Antonio (recently named the #1 NBA Experience by Stadium Journey Magazine for the second consecutive year), and the vision with these renovations is to provide a first-class facility and an unparalleled fan experience.
- Enhancements will take place on all levels of the AT&T Center, and fans will be treated to significant improvements to their experiences, including expanded entrances, renovated concourses, new concessions and bar areas, a larger Fan Shop and a new state-of-the-art HD main video scoreboard, to name a few.
- The renovations are being funded through a 2008 voter-approved extension of the original visitor tax that voters passed in 1999 to build the AT&T Center, combined with a significant investment from SS&E.
- The majority of the renovations are set to be completed by October 30, 2015
AT&T CENTER ENTERS FULL RENOVATION MODE
$100+ Million in Improvements and Renovations Planned for the Bexar County-owned AT&T Center
SAN ANTONIO (June 4, 2015) – Championship banners, belt buckles and trophies have been stored for safe keeping as the AT&T Center entered full renovation mode this week, following the final scheduled event inside the arena on Monday. Spurs Sports & Entertainment is spearheading the $100+ million in improvements and renovations to the Bexar County-owned AT&T Center that will enhance the fan experience at all levels of the arena and will help maintain the AT&T Center as a first-class facility. Renovations to the AT&T Center will include all new seating arena-wide along with infrastructure and technology improvements. The majority of the renovations are set to be completed by late October 2015.
Construction crews began prep work for the renovations immediately following the conclusion of the Spurs and Rampage seasons last month. Demolition to prepare and expand spaces on the Charter, Event and Terrace Levels are underway. Construction on the Plaza Level and H-E-B Fan Zone level is scheduled to begin later this month.
The Fan Shop at the AT&T Center will be closed for the duration of the renovation project and will reopen when the Spurs and Rampage seasons begin this fall. Additionally, guest access to the arena will be granted by appointment only. Fans looking to purchase Spurs gear can visit SpursFanShop.com. Following renovations, a new, expanded Fan Shop will be located on the south side of the building adjacent to an enhanced SE entrance. There will also be a new Fan Shop on the H-E-B Fan Zone Level, to provide a more convenient shopping experience for fans attending events on that level.
Funding for the renovations are provided by both Spurs Sports & Entertainment and the Bexar County Visitor Tax, established by voters in 1999 to build the AT&T Center. In 2008, voters approved an extension of the tax to help fund the Tobin Center, the southern Mission Reach expansion of the River Walk, youth and amateur sports facilities, as well as improvements to the AT&T Center, Freeman Coliseum and rodeo grounds, all owned by Bexar County. The Visitor Tax is paid through a 1.75 percent hotel occupancy tax and a 5 percent short-term motor vehicle rental tax to fund construction of venues and related infrastructure that enhance economic development and tourism.
The AT&T Center hosts more than 250 events annually and is home to the award-winning San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, the San Antonio Spurs (NBA), San Antonio Stars (WNBA) and San Antonio Rampage (AHL).
