Game Day Ready!
If you're heading to the game, you'll want to give yourself a couple of hours to get downtown, park, grab and bite to eat and find your seats before tipoff. Doors open 90 minutes prior to the game’s start time, and fans are encouraged to be in their seats 20 minutes prior to tipoff to Thunder Up and welcome the team onto the court. Here's a guide to dining in Bricktown if you're looking for good food and an easy walk back to to the game. Before select games in the fall and spring, join the family-friendly fun on Reno Avenue for ThunderAlley. The festivities begin three hours prior to tipoff and include games, face painting and entertainment. Check their website at okcthunder.com for specific dates.
Clothes make the fan, and there are plenty of places around town to get proper Thunder gear. For official NBA-licensed merchandise, check out the Thunder merchandise shop in Chesapeake Energy Arena at 100 West Reno Avenue and online at okcthunder.com/shop. For locally designed clothes to get you in the spirit, check out Shop Good in Automobile Alley, DNA Galleries in the Plaza District or Blue Seven on the north side of town.
