Heat Exec Woolworth Bullish On Prospect Of Fans Next Season
Heat President of Business Operations Eric Woolworth has an "optimistically contrasting perspective" on the '20-21 NBA season, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida SUN SENTINEL. Woolworth said, "We plan on playing next season in front of fans, and plan on having a sold-out facility, just like we've had since going back to 2009, for all games." He added, "We have been working really, really hard on the health-and-safety plan, which I'm sure we'll be rolling out some time this fall. And right now, I think time is on our side. We've got a tentative date of December first, but that could slide, and might be January before we start." Woolworth said that the "demand is there, amid the hope of a change from the NBA's current new norm." Woolworth: "We're actually pacing ahead of where we were last year at this time with season tickets. So business is good, in that sense" (South Florida SUN SENTINEL, 7/30).
