Congratulations Duke

You just hung yourself
The Dayton Dragons are sold out every game for the foreseeable future.
The NSS report indicates that Wilmingtons stadium will not. In fact they state on page that attendance in 2017 will be 231,000.
The Dayton drgaons? 8288 per game X 70 = 580,160.

"In Dayton,Ohio the Bank paid 3 million over 10 years for naming rights"
Yep they did and for good reason the stadium is sold out.
We will not be - re-read NSS its right there in black and white

But if you don't believe me believd Forbes:
http://www.forbes.com/2008/08/06/baseball-minors-sacramento-biz-sports-c...

"Once MiLB teams with a modern ballpark can get annual attendance up to the 400,000 range, Vataha notes, they can generate significant revenue from sponsors, especially if the team has a modern stadium where luxury suites can be given to sponsors who lavish advertising revenue on the team. Says Vataha, "With a minor league team, you are really running a themed restaurant with a cover charge." We estimate Dayton, which has 30 suites at its state-of-the-art Fifth Third Field, raked in $2.5 million in sponsorship revenue last season, fourth-most in the minors."

NSS says we're NOT like Dayton - so don't go there Duke
Pg 70 Dayton is the 4h LARGEST market by population
Pg 70 We are the 4th SMALLEST
Dayton has 4 times the population draw that we do.
Its all in the NSS report

This is not fear - its facts.
Small market
Small town
Small profit
small attendance
smaller impact

Its no wonder they're going general obligation bonds Revenue bonds won't pay for it.
Sorry

Best Regards
Vog
