Hornets Poised To Exceed Average Attendance Requirement
Published January 24, 2011
Prior to tonight’s game, the Hornets have an average attendance this season of 14,367, but the attendance benchmark covers a two-year period. Last year the team averaged more than 15,000 fans per game. “We expect a sellout and will meet the benchmark,” said Hornets Senior Dir of Communications Harold Kaufman. The Hornets are now owned by the NBA after the league last month agreed to buy the team from George Shinn for over $300M.
