Sixers change start time

As expected, the Sixers have moved the start time of Wednesday's season opener to 6 p.m. to accommodate fans wishing to watch the World Series game across the complex.

The Sixers and Toronto were scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m.

The Sixers said the AT&T Pavilion at the Wachovia Center will remain open after the Sixers game late into the evening for fans to watch the baseball game with half-price domestic beer specials and delicious food, including Chickie's & Pete's world famous Crab Fries and chicken tenders. After the Sixers game, access to the AT&T Pavilion will be free and open to the public.
