There is just one more day to go before what will be the ultimate celebration of the San Antonio Spurs’ 50th Anniversary season: Friday’s game against the Golden State Warriors at the Alamodome. Not only will it be a fun throwback to the 90’s before the much more confined (and logical) AT&T Center was built, but it should be a wild affair, with the Spurs announcing last night they had officially sold enough tickets to break the all time attendance record for an NBA game.

With 63,582 tickets sold (and likely still counting), the Spurs have officially surpassed the previous record of 62,046, set on March 27, 1998 at the Georgia Dome in a match-up between the Atlanta Hawks and Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls.
The maximum capacity for the Alamodome game is 65,000, and there are still tickets available as of the posting of this article.

Who’s ready for the Spurs to make some history?
Update: The Spurs are now up to 64,387 tickets sold, and due to high demand plan on releasing additional tickets, so they could end up over 65,000. This is going to be one wild ride!
UPDATE: The Spurs have already sold 64,387 tickets to Friday's game at the Alamodome. But hey, why stop there? Even though capacity at the Dome is listed at 65,000, the Spurs are now releasing *even more* tickets for sale. pic.twitter.com/va0bJE1iNQ— Robert Price (@RobertPriceTV) January 12, 2023
