SAN ANTONIO - Bexar County Commissioners have given Spurs Sports & Entertainment, the parent company of the defending NBA champions, the green light to begin work on up to $101.5 million in improvements and renovations to AT&T Center.

Commissioners say planned improvements to the county-owned arena will affect spectator areas on every level of the 12-year-old East San Antonio venue.

Planned changes include improvements to seating and entrances at the AT&T Center, and an expanded Fan Shop.

A number of technological changes are also planned, including the installation of a new high-definition center-hung scoreboard and wrap-around LED boards.

"As the owner, it is our responsibility not just to repair and maintain the AT&T Center, but to make sure it stays competitive," Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said.

Bexar County will contribute $85 million toward the cost of AT&T Center improvements, while the Spurs will cover the remaining $16.5 million in renovation-related expenses.

Work on the arena makeover is slated to begin this summer.
