CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Hornets are welcoming fans back to the Spectrum Center. 

Roughly 3,000 fans will be able to attend their first match-up on the hardwood against the Toronto Raptors. That game is set for Saturday, March 13.

All fans in attendance will have to wear a mask and social distance seating will be enforced.  Guests also must go through a health check on the Hornet's smart-phone app before entering the door.

The Hornets also plan to provide 500 complimentary tickets to Novant Health employees as a thank you for all their hard work during the pandemic.

Single game tickets for the rest of the season will go on sale starting this Friday.
