San Antonio Spurs (ABA/NBA) (1973-1993) Houston Rockets (NBA) (1972-1973) San Antonio Force (AFL) (1992)

The HemisFair Arena was an indoor arena located in San Antonio, Texas, United States. It was home to the National Basketball Association's San Antonio Spurs from 1973 to 1993 and the San Antonio Force of the Arena Football League during the 1992 season, their only year of existence. The Houston Rockets also played home games at the arena during the 1972-73 NBA season.

The arena initially held 10,146 fans for basketball. The San Antonio Spurs played their first ever game at the arena at 10 October, 1973 which they lost to the San Diego Conquistadors 121-106 in front of a 5,879 crowd. As Spurs games began regularly selling out, the roof of arena was literally raised and lifted during the summer of 1977, adding an upper deck at the facility and allowing for a capacity of over 16,057. While the renovation boosted capacity, it did result in a large number of obstructed view seats in the lower levels due to the support beams required for the upper deck. Throughout its lifespan, it was considered one of the loudest arenas in the NBA.
