NBA's Philadelphia 76ers To Play Here in October

UPDATE: The Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Nets will play the first preseason professional basketball game at the Roanoke Civic Center in 13 years when the two teams tip-off on Tuesday, October 5 at 7 p.m. Tickets will go on sale on Saturday, May 22 at 10 a.m. exclusively through, by phone at 1-877-HTB-TIXNOW or in person at the Roanoke Civic Center ticket office.

Global Spectrum, operator of the Roanoke Civic Center, is a subsidiary of 76ers parent company Comcast-Spectacor, and was able to secure the preseason game for the Civic Center. The last preseason game at the Roanoke Civic Center was in October 1997, when the then Charlotte Hornets met the Detroit Pistons.

“This is a very exciting time for basketball fans in the City of Roanoke to see some of the premiere players in the sport right here in Roanoke," said Global Spectrum's Chris Connolly, General Manager of the Roanoke Civic Center. “Being part of the Comcast-Spectacor Family of Companies provides us with a wealth of opportunities, one of which is to have the Philadelphia 76ers play right here in Roanoke.”

"Global Spectrum is committed to the Roanoke Civic Center and we will continue to seek opportunities to provide the ultimate sports and entertainment experience to our residents," added Connolly.
