Following a loss to the Denver Nuggets, the Portland Trail Blazers will return home to Moda Center, and the team has announced that the arena’s capacity will increase from 8,000 fans to 10,000 fans, per a press release.

Coordinating with local government and the Oregon Health Authority, the increase in capacity allows more fans to sit in both the Vaccinated Sections and physically distanced sections to cheer on the team in the NBA Western Conference Playoffs, presented by Moda Health and your local Toyota dealers. Tickets will be available on a limited basis at trailblazers.com/tickets leading up to the game.

The game is scheduled for 5 PM PT Thursday, so the team is urging fans to arrive early to avoid traffic.

The press release declares that Trail Blazers fans are the “best fans in the league for in-arena support,” which is undoubtedly true. We hope that Rip City rocks the arena tomorrow night!
