PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns will begin allowing a limited number of fans to attend games for the first time this season, beginning with healthcare workers.

On Sunday, February 7, the Suns say they will allow healthcare workers and their families into the game against Boston for free in groups of two or four.

Healthcare workers were able to sign up online to receive free tickets to the game, but registration has since closed after an overwhelming response. The complimentary tickets are non-transferrable. The Suns say that if healthcare workers signed up before registration was taken down, and they don't receive their free tickets for Sunday's game, the team will work to get them free tickets to a different game this season.

“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,” said Phoenix Suns President & CEO Jason Rowley. “With an exciting new era beginning on the court and a practically new building to play in, 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.”

Other fans will be allowed to attend games starting on February 8 versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Season ticket members can begin buying tickets for February 8 and beyond starting Thursday, February 4. Single-game tickets for non-season ticket holders will go on sale Friday, February 5.

The team says up to 1,500 fans will be allowed at each game, starting on February 8. Suites will be kept at 25% capacity or less for each game.
