The Spurs welcome their interstate rival the Dallas Mavericks on New Year’s Eve, and the Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics in San Antonio on Saturday, Jan. 7.
The organization said more “memorable events” are planned for the 2022-23 season.
“Hosting these four games is part of our vision to purposefully engage and celebrate our entire Spurs following from Mexico to Austin, while fostering the next generation of fans,” RC Buford, the CEO of Spurs Sports & Entertainment, said in the release. “Playing in front of our Austin fans for the first time ever during the regular season, returning to Mexico City and hosting a historic celebration in the Alamodome will each be exciting moments for our entire organization. We are grateful for our loyal supporters throughout our entire region and are thrilled for the opportunity to play in front of them as part of our 50th anniversary season.”

At the end of the season, all five bobbleheads will come together as one unit for fans who collect the entire series to form a Spurs river barge, made popular during the team’s championship celebrations.
