The Phoenix Suns are to play two regular-season games in Mexico City during the 2016/17 season. The franchise will be the first team to play two games in the company of their southern neighbours.
On January 12, the Suns will play the Dallas Mavericks and on January 14 they will face the San Antonio Spurs. Both games will see Phoenix designated as the ‘home’ team.
“It’s an honour to make history alongside the NBA and call Mexico City a second home of the Suns this season,” Suns president Jason Rowley said. “We have an incredibly strong and supportive Hispanic fan base in Arizona, and these two games present a unique opportunity to strengthen our relationship with NBA fans in both Arizona and Mexico.”
