This is the highest total since the team moved from CLT to MSY in 1992. Having a 10K season ticket base goes a long way to ensure the long term viability of a team. Congrats Hornets on a great job on and off the court. Nice to see the fans step up and support this team.
Quoting Hornets President Hugo Weber...
"There are a lot of significant things happening, " Hornets President Hugh Weber said Thursday. "We're within 100 tickets (of a lower-bowl sellout), and we've always said that's a significant objective.
"And the other very significant goal which is unprecedented for us in this market is surpassing 10,000 season tickets. Very few teams in the NBA accomplish that, and even the large markets have a difficult time doing it. So we're very proud that in this market, we've been able to do what markets five or six or seven times this size have been unable to do."
