The Oklahoma City Thunder will return to Wichita during the 2013 preseason, the team announced today. The Thunder will host the Chicago Bulls at INTRUST Bank Arena on Oct. 23.
“The entire Thunder organization, from players to coaches to staff, thoroughly enjoyed our previous experiences in Tulsa and Wichita, so we are thrilled to return,” said Brian Byrnes, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for the Thunder. “The energy in the buildings and the overwhelming support of the fans was tremendous. We are excited to have another opportunity to enhance our connection to Thunder fans in the region."
The Thunder is set to visit Wichita for a second consecutive season. The Thunder took on the Dallas Mavericks in October, 2012. The game was sold out.
Tickets will go on sale next month on the arena's website (INTRUST Bank Arena: http://www.intrustbankarena.com).
