SALES OF NBA ACTION NOT A MOVING AT RECORD CLIP IN ANAHEIM
Published November 17, 1995
Despite strong attendance at the six regular season Clipper games played at Anaheim last year, Orange County is proving to be a "tougher sell" for the NBA this year. Earlier exhibition games against the Magic and the Suns were expected to sellout, but attendance at both were "significantly less than anything the Clippers experienced last year." Brad Mayne, GM of the Anaheim Arena, said the Clippers are "just part of the decrease in tickets sales" for every event staged this year. Mayne said teams have been forced to increase spending on telemarketing, and sales of a 10-game Clipper package in Anaheim are down 20% from last year. The December 2 game against the Bulls will be a sellout, while two others are close to sold out. Last week, NBA Commissioner David Stern named Anaheim as a possible expansion site (VANCOUVER SUN/L.A. DAILY NEWS, 11/17). LAST NIGHT: The Clippers drew 10,169 in Anaheim for a game against the Grizzlies (THE DAILY).
