The Thunder will once again return to Wichita and Tulsa during the 2014 preseason, the team announced Wednesday.
The Thunder will host the Raptors in Wichita on Oct. 17 and then the Timberwolves in Tulsa on Oct. 19.
“We are excited to be bringing Thunder Basketball back to Wichita and Tulsa, where we have sold out our games in both cities for two straight years,” said Brian Byrnes, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Thunder. “We continue to be overwhelmed and humbled by the tremendous loyalty of our fans throughout Oklahoma and neighboring states. They watch our games on TV, buy Thunder merchandise and strongly support the team. This tradition of bringing games to Tulsa and Wichita is a way for us to continue to connect to and thank our fans in those communities. It serves as a reminder for us about the impact our team has even beyond our local community.”
This is the Thunder’s third consecutive preseason appearance in Wichita and the sixth time the team has visited Tulsa during the exhibition season.
Tickets for both preseason games will go on sale on a to-be-determined date in mid-April.
