PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers are taking the first steps toward building a privately-funded sports and entertainment arena.

They say 76 Place is anticipated to cost about $1.3 billion. Josh Harris and David Blitzer say in a news release they’re committed to creating “a privately funded arena that strengthens ties within the local community through investments that prioritize equity, inclusivity and accessibility.” Groundbreaking is not expected for several years and the project is expected to be finished in time for the 2031-2032 NBA season.

The Sixers currently play at Wells Fargo Center.
