Spurs Sports & Entertainment (SS&E) and Victory Capital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: VCTR) (“Victory Capital”) today commemorated the grand opening of the Victory Capital Performance Center, a cutting-edge practice facility for the San Antonio Spurs that marks a new era in athletic performance and development. This milestone was celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony and special guests from Victory Capital, Bexar County and City of San Antonio, as well as many of the dedicated contractors and construction partners who played an integral role in this project.

Victory Capital Management Inc. was announced as the naming rights partner for the Performance Center and as the official investment partner of the San Antonio Spurs in January of this year.

“After a decade of planning and research and nearly two years of construction, we are elated to officially open the doors of the Victory Capital Performance Center,” said RC Buford, Chief Executive Officer for SS&E. “This facility embodies a spirit of innovation and commitment to performance excellence that defines the San Antonio Spurs and our partnership with Victory Capital. Together with the City of San Antonio and Bexar County, this collaboration underscores our continued commitment to be visionaries and drive change for our organization and the community.”

“It’s rare that you find an organization, athletic or otherwise, with the deep-rooted core values and commitment to excellence, integrity and community demonstrated by the San Antonio Spurs,” said David Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Victory Capital. “We are extremely proud to be the official investment partner to this elite organization and showcase our brand alongside theirs on this next-generation training facility.”

The Victory Capital Performance Center is the anchor and part of phase one of The Rock at La Cantera campus. Phase one includes the Performance Center, Frost Plaza, a 40-foot outdoor screen and public restaurant, an affinity club named “Spurs Club” and the 22-acre Park at La Cantera, which is home to the largest dog park in Bexar County.

Victory Capital Performance Center

The Victory Capital Performance Center, located on The Rock at La Cantera campus, boasts 134,000 square feet of innovation and excellence that will redefine professional sports training. The facility will be home to basketball operations for the San Antonio Spurs and feature some of today’s most advanced innovations in sports technology and performance. Equipped with a motion capture performance lab, environmental training room, hydrotherapy pools, sensory deprivation tank, team dining room and performance kitchen, the Performance Center will stand in a class of its own among professional training facilities.

This facility also represents a remarkable advancement in sustainability for both the sports industry and Texas. It is the first mass timber constructed training facility in professional sports and one of the largest mass timber construction builds in the state. SS&E is dedicated to environmentally responsible development, incorporating rooftop solar modules to offset 36% of the facility’s energy use and water- saving initiatives into the Victory Capital Performance Center.
