The Sixers’ annual Blue X White scrimmage will take place in Wilmington this year, at the still relatively new Fieldhouse.
Tickets again are free, just like previous iterations of the preseason intra-squad game. This year’s exhibition is scheduled for Saturday, October 5th, at 1 p.m. and all fans in attendance will receive a co-branded Sixers and Blue Coats t-shirt.
After the jump, the press release, with information in bold on how to sign up for tickets:
The Philadelphia 76ers announced today its annual Blue x White Scrimmage on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 1 p.m. at 76ers Fieldhouse, home of the 76ers G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats. The free, ticketed event is the fans’ first chance to see the 2019-20 76ers team. All fans in attendance will receive a co-branded 76ers-Blue Coats Blue x White Scrimmage T-shirt.
Fans interested in securing tickets, which will be available on a limited basis, must sign up for the SixthMan Fan newsletter. More information on how to secure tickets will be communicated through the SixthMan Fan newsletter in the coming days. Both 76ers’ and Blue Coats’ season ticket members will receive access to a presale featuring a limited amount of free tickets.
The 76ers Blue x White Scrimmage will feature a fan zone with inflatable games, face painters, balloon artists and additional carnival games. Fans can also participate in an NBA-style combine where they will test their dribbling skills and passing abilities and take part in vertical jump and wingspan tests.
Fans attending will also have the opportunity to win prizes from Chick-fil-A and TruMark Financial, receive free haircuts for their kids by Maestro’s Classic and register their children ages 4 to 14 for the 76ers Kids Club, presented by Five Below. All members will receive a 76ers-branded backpack and lanyard, a Spalding NBA-regulation basketball, two Ballin’ Ben T-shirts, a $5 Five Below gift card, one ticket voucher to a Delaware Blue Coats 2019-20 regular-season home game, a discount coupon to the 76ers Team Store, an official Kids Club Membership Card and more.
The release also notes that this Friday, ESPN’s First Take will broadcast live from the Fieldhouse. Stephen A Smith in Wilmington, holla at your boyyyyyyy.
Also, not sure if y’all remember, but Kris Humphries was mercilessly booed two years ago at the Palestra scrimmage.
Here are a couple of wide-angle Fieldhouse shots courtesy of the Sixers, for an idea of what the court and bleachers look like:
