Appreciate the quote from R.C. Buford above in case any doom and gloomers start in. The expanded part ends with this from R.C.: "San Antonio has been home for five decades and the organization will continue to innovate, positioning the Spurs to thrive in San Antonio for the next 50 years."
Here's some context from the article:
According to a proposal that will be voted by Bexar County commissioners on Tuesday, the Spurs would likely play two international regular season games as the home team. The games could be played in Mexico City and in Monterrey, according to Wolff. The Spurs previously played in Mexico City in 2019.
“It would be Mexico City or Monterrey. That’s close to us. The theory is that if they can get out and broaden their network, get sponsors, get people to buy seats, get fans to come here, that it would bring them up,” Wolff said.
Another part of the proposal is for the Spurs to play at least two home games within a 100-mile radius from San Antonio. Wolff said those games could be played in the Alamodome, Austin, or possibly San Marcos. But Wolff was fairly certain Austin would be the site of one of those games. UT-Austin recently opened the new Moody Center.
“They (Spurs) want to go to Austin and have a game. I know that,” Wolff said. “They figure that they can draw more people down there if they did that.”
The two-year plan would start at the beginning of the 2022-23 regular season, which would be the 50th season since the Spurs franchise relocated from Dallas to San Antonio.
