Led by new head coach Billy Donovan, and featuring Zach LaVine, Thaddeous Young and Coby White, the up and coming Chicago Bulls are looking to improve upon a disappointing pandemic shortened season as they travel to Orlando to take on the Magic. Meanwhile, the Magic, headed by coach Steve Clifford and featuring Nik Vucevic, and Mohamed Bamba, will be trying to return to the playoffs after a quick playoff exit last season.
Seating will be in the lower bowl. Currently, the Magic are planning to allow up to 4,000 fans into the arena with strict adherence to social distancing guidelines and other safety protocols. Face coverings will be mandatory inside Orlando’s Amway Center, fans will have to complete a pre-arrival symptom and exposure survey, and those in proximity to the court will have to undergo testing.
The game at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando is just part of the excitement of a three-night getaway that includes luxurious one-bedroom villa accommodations at Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa. The NBA weekend event also offers you a VIP check-in, plus convenient transportation to and from the arena and a late check-out on your final day.
