Great article on the Checkers and Canes affiliation

Recommended Posts


Nice to see our prospects are enjoying their new home.

A few notes from the article I found interesting:

The Checkers averaged 5,739 fans in their first 17 home games, ranking ninth in attendance among 30 AHL teams. The Albany Devils, now affiliated with New Jersey Devils, were last (2,770.)

Black said the Checkers had an increase of 69 percent in season-ticket revenue from last season. Corporate sponsorship revenue has shown a 35 percent increase, she said.

Black said an agreement with Time Warner Cable will result in some of the Checkers games being televised. The first, she said, would be Jan. 14 against the Manchester (N.H.) Monarchs and would be available on Time Warner Cable in the Triangle.

One thing though about it that made me :rolleyes: was the baseball and basketball comparisons but guess you will have that in a general article for the paper.
