Spurs multi-year announcement

San Antonio – On Jan. 18, Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E) announced Victory Capital as the naming rights partner for the new Spurs performance center.

Victory Capital Holdings Inc., a San Antonio-based investment managing company, reached an agreement with SS&E on a multi-year naming rights partnership for the new facility.

San Antonio Spurs’ CEO R. C. Buford said the new facility will be named Victory Capital Performance Center, and it will be finished before summer camp in 2023.

“I can’t wait to get over there,” Spurs forward Keldon Johnson said of the new facility. 

The Spurs’ new building is currently under construction at The Rock at La Cantera, located at 15935 La Cantera Parkway. The property, which will include the Spurs training facility, a 22-acre public park, a research center, and office, medical and hospitality space, will sit on 45 acres.

The estimated total cost of construction is $510.8 million.

Monitoring Johnson’s injury

Prior to his 36 points, 11 rebounds and four steals on Tuesday night, Johnson had been dealing with a lingering leg injury.

With positive momentum from Tuesday’s win over the Nets, Johnson seems to be monitoring his injury well.

“I’ve been feeling good,” Johnson said. “Just staying on top of treatment, staying with the training staff, just staying on top of it. Still managing everything else.”

The Spurs are 45 games into their 82-game regular season. With just under half the season remaining, it’s critical to head into the home stretch of the season with a healthy roster.

“It’s a long season; we’ll have bumps and bruises. It’s going to be tough, but [I’m] just fighting it the best way I can,” Johnson said.
