Sixers to practice at Spectrum

The Philadelphia 76ers will conduct a free, open-to-the-public practice at their former home, the Wachovia Spectrum, on Saturday, October 10 at 11 a.m. as part of the arena’s final farewell. No tickets are required and fans can enter the Spectrum as early as one hour prior to the start of the open practice.

“With October being the final month of the Spectrum and the excitement the team generated last season with their special Return to the Spectrum game, we felt it was important for the fans to be able to celebrate the many wonderful memories of the Spectrum with the Sixers one more time,” said Comcast-Spectacor President Peter Luukko.

During the open practice, the players will go through warm-up drills, shooting practice, and an inter-squad scrimmage. Assistant coach Mike O’Koren will wear a microphone and describe the action to the fans as it’s happening on the court. In addition, Sixers forward Andre Iguodola will welcome the fans with a special pre-practice opening announcement.
