HAWKS POOR SHOWING AT THE GATE WON'T DETER ARENA PLANS
Published May 8, 1995
Hawks President Stan Kasten says poor attendance at the Omni "will not influence their decision on whether to build a new arena," according to Sunday's ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Atlanta averaged 12,312 fans per game this year, down 1,023 from last season. The team announced they would build an arena either in downtown Atlanta or the city's Northern suburbs a year ago, but have yet to make a decision on where the facility will be located. Kasten: "We have to make this decision (soon). We're still buttoning up a lot of stuff, analyzing more than one solution, dealing with multiple sites and multiple municipalities. There are incredibly complex issues" (Tim Tucker, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/7).
