With the San Antonio Spurs, Innovation is Part of the Game
In the past, teams would sell tickets and fans would come and watch their favorite team. It is no longer just about the game on the court, but the overall experience that the fans come in contact with. This is evident with the various fan engagement that one experiences as soon as they enter the gates of the AT&T Center, as well as when they are watching the Spurs in the comfort of their favorite chair. In this session, the Spurs will explain how they touch their fan base and how it does go beyond the games.
