So...fan support

19 posts in this topic

My question is how can the organization and team sell out games and increase fan support (minus winning of course)? It finally seems things are looking up for the club (minus the name) and they are currently the hottest team in the NBA. So, what's going to bring all those young bankers to the game?

It's simple supply and demand. There are 8 home NFL games in the regular season but 41 NBA home games. Demand for individual game tickets is always going to be way lower in the NBA than the NFL.

The pink elephant in the room. This city should be giving way more support to this team as far as attendance goes. The arena is always half empty. We as fans (me included) should be attending more games. Jordan said last year that he understands its a tough balance, he wants more fan support but understands we're going thru an economic crisis right now and people just arent spending money like they used to.

You can get tickets for most games off craigslist for $10 or under.

I know you said minus winning but I really think it might be that simple. You can already see the increase in interest by calls to the local sports radio station and even traffic in this forum. I think a playoff home game will be the hottest ticket in town and "the place to be". Be interesting to see if it carries over to the following year though. Sustained winning would go along way for fan support.

It would be nice to have a consistent pro sports team in town.

It really is sad though how few people actually go to the games, especially during the middle of the week. At least lately it really feels like the majority of people there actually care.

Tuesday is a good cheap day to go. They have 10 dollar tickets, 3 dollar beer, and 2 dollar hot dogs. You can get scalped tickets for real cheap out front. Bobblehead night would fill the place up too. People like freebies.
