Another major sporting event appears it will be making its way to the Bay Area.
The Warriors are in position to host their first NBA All-Star Game in 25 years. League sources said a deal to have the Golden State host the 2025 NBA All-Star Weekend in San Francisco is close to being completed, news that was first reported Thursday by The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Details still need to be formalized before the league announces the event.
The Bay Area has not hosted the All-Star Game since 2000 when the midseason showcase took place at Oakland Arena, which was later known as Oracle Arena. This season’s All-Star festivities will take place in Indianapolis on Feb. 17 and 18.
The Warriors threw their hat in the ring to host next season’s All-Star festivities this summer when they submitted a bid along with Phoenix, Los Angeles and Milwaukee. After months of discussion, the Warriors have come out as frontrunners to welcome the NBA’s midseason showcase.
If granted, 2025 NBA All-Star Weekend will tip-off a cycle of several marquee sporting events taking place in the Bay. Earlier this year, the San Francisco 49ers were awared Super Bowl 60 in 2026 at Levi’s Stadium. Four months after that, the Santa Clara venue is slated to host World Cup matches.
