Bobcats To Raise Some Ticket Prices For '11-12 Season, Lower Others
Published January 17, 2011
ENERGY BILL: The Bobcats on Saturday announced a deal with Duke Energy that provides the company with in-arena and courtside rotational signage, a customized concourse window box, scoreboard video vignettes, a digital presence at bobcats.com, and a drive-to-website promotion and contest (Bobcats). The CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL's Spanberg reports it is a three-year deal worth an "estimated $500,000 annually." Bobcats Owner Michael Jordan helped land the company by hosting Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers and President Brett Carter "last summer in his executive office." Carter said that other possibilities for his company's relationship with the Bobcats include "installing solar panels on the roof" of Time Warner Cable Arena (CHARLOTTE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 1/14 issue).
