Miami Heat News: Heat Release 2017-18 Home Preseason Schedule
- Updated: April 27, 2017
The 2016-17 NBA season may be in the rearview mirror for the Miami Heat, but they continue to look forward by focusing on the 2017-18 campaign. On Thursday, they took one more step in that direction by announcing their home preseason schedule for next year.
A mere three games will be on the schedule, beginning with an Oct. 1 game against the Atlanta Hawks that will tip off just after 6 p.m. ET. That’s followed by an Oct. 9 clash against the Charlotte Hornets, with the final home matchup against the Washington Wizards taking place two nights later. All three games will be at American Airlines Arena, with each of the latter two matchups tipping off just after 7:30 p.m. ET.
Next season, the Heat will begin a new approach when it comes to entering the arena for home games:
“All Miami Heat home games will be mobile only entry. Heat fans may access their game tickets via the Miami Heat App, Ticketmaster.com and/or the Ticketmaster App on a smartphone in order gain entry to American Airlines Arena.”
Dates and times for Miami’s road preseason games will be announced at a later date. The NBA regular season will begin earlier for the 2017-18 campaign in an effort to at least partially eliminate the issue of teams having to play back-to-back games. The regular season schedule is expected to be released sometime in August.
