OKLAHOMA CITY -

From now on the Paycom Center will be shining a little greener at night and fans will be able to see it Monday night at the Thunder's first preseason game. 

This comes two months after Paycom secured the rights to the stadium in downtown OKC and the home for the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Starting with the Thunder's first preseason game Monday night, fans who plan to enter the Paycom Center for games must provide proof of full or partial COVID vaccination. Or provide a negative test taken within 72 hours prior to the game. 

The Thunder are also strongly encouraging fans to wear a face mask while in the arena. These policies are planned to last through at least November 26th. 

"We want to honor people's excitement in coming back, but we have to do it in a healthy way," said Dan Mahoney, Thunder VP of broadcasting and corporate communications. 

Monday night's game will be the first time Thunder fans will be welcomed back into the newly renamed Paycom center since March 2020; the game against the Utah Jazz that led to the shutdown of the NBA.
