Begs the question why they'd leave if it's such a good locale!

Maybe we can steal it away from them instead?

I just don't understand why Wilmington can't get a freaking arena as part of it's convention center. Could have a situation like North Charleston

The same reason the city turned down a sweet 14,000-seat minor league stadium. Most of the taxpayers here suck, and don't give a sh*t if people leave for Raleigh or Charlotte to get jobs.

Yeah, I'm still bitter. 70 % against. Unbelievable.

RE: Future of the CAA Tournament
The winningest teams are going to have the best crowds in general, so to make attendance the #1 priority, we host it at the #1 seeds school. Sure, UNCW at #1 will get more fans than NU at #1, but we can fill an arena if it's a big game and we are good. If let's say UNCW is a #8 and W&M is #7. I don't think Virginia Beach will help much.

I like that we have a tourney that everyone gets together for a long weekend. But if attendance is the concern, then there's no better option than higher seeds hosting their games, since we are so spread out. I don't like it, but it must be on the conference's radar.

Maybe they'd go for an arena though?

Can't hurt to try, since they turned down minor league baseball. Surely, they definitely wouldn't do both.

i remember the vote and it's crazy. Could host events like this, maybe would help UNCW draw bigger P5 teams in for games, concerts. Huge boost for hotels, downtown businesses. bigger picture!!!!!!

The vote though, was for a baseball stadium. Outside of baseball games and outdoor concerts... the possibilities are limited there. However, for an arena there's soooooooo many more options.

You could have everything from monster truck competitions to conventions of all types. The possibilities are nearly endless for money making opportunities without seasonal restrictions.

Yup, I've seen many of the Wilmington old timers are very short sighted in their votes
