Thursday was our first day to see the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center. This is the arena where the Sprite Charity Game will take place on Saturday. The arena is only two years old and is also an aquatic center. The court was built just for this event and the venue seats about 18,000.
We had a “walk through” meeting with the team event managers. This helped us prepare and know what to expect for our full rehearsals.
To complete the day we found some Thunder Fans! Fans weren’t only in the arena, but they were throughout the city too. We are so excited to meet all of Shanghai’s basketball fans on Saturday!
