MINNESOTA FANS HUNGRY FOR THEIR WOLVES
Published January 13, 1997
The T-Wolves have become a "hot ticket," according Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Including sales for upcoming games, they have sold more tickets this season than all of '95-96. T-Wolves VP/Sales & Marketing Chris Wright: "We used to sell [Michael] Jordan and other NBA stars, but now we can sell Kevin Garnett, Tom Gugliotta and Stephon Marbury, our own stars. The commercials are sold out on our Channel 11 TV and MSC broadcasts, and 90 percent of our radio (ad time) is sold." Wright added the T-Wolves corporate sponsors have increased from 40 last year to 68; they have only two unsold suites, which they rent out on a game-by-game basis; season-ticket sales are up 2,000 to 9,400; and they are selling 2,000-3,000 tickets at the box office each game night (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 1/11).
