SAN ANTONIO – It’s confirmed. The Spurs and Selena -- two San Antonio favorites -- are coming together.
The Spurs created a flurry of excitement Tuesday with a social media post that said “Coming soon to the AT&T Center...” with a graphic of an "S" intertwined with the Spurs logo on a background of roses and Selena lyrics.
On Wednesday, the Spurs released more details saying the April 3 home game against the Golden State Warriors will be Selena Night.
Fans will receive a Selena Night T-shirt with ticket purchase, and the first 10,000 fans in attendance that night will receive a commemorative Selena x Spurs rally towel.
The Spurs will launch a Selena x Spurs collection with men and women’s clothing and other merchandise. Some of the collection will be available online starting Feb. 5, other items will be available at the AT&T Center on April 3 and then online and in the Spurs Fan Shop on April 4.
“The legacy of Selena goes far beyond music,” said Becky Kimbro, Spurs Sports & Entertainment vice president of strategic brand engagement. “She continues to inspire generations of fans to celebrate culture and connect with each other – both of which are central pillars of the Spurs experience
