RAPTORS/GRIZZLIES ON THE VERGE OF MAJOR CORPORATE BUYS?
Published December 14, 1994
A report this morning indicates that a string of corporate block buys could put both the Raptors and Grizzlies over the NBA- imposed goal of 12,500 season-tickets. The Raptors are believed to be in negotiations with Ford, Shoppers Drug Mart, and AST Computers about the purchase of a large block of tickets. The Grizzlies, who are also speaking with Shoppers Mart, and AST, will hold a news conference next Tuesday to announce the total in their ticket campaign. It is believed they will reveal at that time that they have reached the 12,500 goal. Grizzlies spokesperson Steve Frost: "We're discussing block ticket buys and working toward closing those deals" (Craig Daniels, TORONTO SUN, 12/14).
