The Phoenix Suns will welcome fans on Sunday. They will allow the limited number of spectators to attend games for the first time this season. The Suns will start with a special invitation for healthcare workers on Sunday.
The Suns will allow 1500 tickets for the fans with an invitation, starting Monday, in the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The suits that can be filled up to 25% are not included. They are offering complimentary tickets to healthcare workers and their families for Sunday’s contest against the Boston Celtics.
“As the true MVPs of our community, we want to honor and thank our healthcare heroes for all they have done during these challenging times,” Sun’s president and CEO Jason Rowley said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome fans back to Phoenix Suns Arena. Our staff has worked tirelessly with the NBA and health officials to ensure proper protocols are in place to keep everyone safe.”
Before attending, fans must fill out and submit a Fan Promise. It is an online standardized health questionnaire about COVID-19 symptoms and exposure.
The Suns are on an 11-8 record, currently the 5th playoff seed. They are playing the best defense in the league. Injuries have slowed them down a little bit, but when the starting five are complete, they are a tough opponent for everyone in the NBA.
The fans are slowly returning to arenas in the NBA, which is a fantastic news. One way or another, the humanity will beat this virus and everything will come back to normal.
