The Detroit Pistons will begin selling a limited number of tickets to home games for the second half of the NBA schedule, the team announced Wednesday.

Per the team, up to 750 tickets will be available for the game against the San Antonio Spurs on March 17, as well as all home games after that.

The move follows Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer‘s announcement that the state will begin easing restrictions on businesses and start allowing 50% capacity for indoor dining.

“The Pistons have worked closely with public health and medical experts, government officials, the NBA and Little Caesars Arena to implement an extensive set of health and safety measures in preparation for hosting more fans,” the team statement read. “All seats will be physically distanced.”

The Pistons will be the 16th NBA team to allow fans this season.

“In preparation for hosting a limited number of fans during these challenging times, we are grateful to work closely with state and local health professionals, the NBA and Olympia Entertainment in creating a safe and welcoming environment,” said Mike Zavodsky, Chief Business Officer for the Pistons. “We thank our fans and the community for their continued support during this time as we worked through all necessary steps and benchmarks required for welcoming you back to Little Caesars Arena safely.”
