The newly designed City Edition court and uniforms for the Spurs highlight Hemisfair and the Tower of the Americas.
Driving the news: The team unveiled the court and uniforms Thursday. A retail collection is on sale at the Spurs Fan Shop and online.
Zoom in: Hemisfair was the site of the 1968 World's Fair in San Antonio. The new uniform design is influenced by the style of the late 1960s, with an Earth-toned palette of brown and orange, accented by pink, yellow and green on the shorts.

- "Viva Spurs" is emblazoned on the court and above the jock tag on each jersey.
What they're saying: "The World's Fair was the first officially designated international exposition in the Southwest United States and made the late '60s a pivotal time in our city," Becky Kimbro, senior vice president of brand engagement for Spurs Sports & Entertainment, said in a statement.
- "We saw this era as the perfect illustration of the growth and vibrancy embodied by both our community and our team."
What's next: The Spurs will wear the new uniforms for the first time on Nov. 10 at the Frost Bank Center when they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves in the in-season tournament.
