Never said we would have a good crowd. It will look just like Key Arena does. But if SU can get back to 4-5k average attendance like they had as an independant, which winning will bring, it will look better. Hopefully they can curtain off the upper levels like SU does. Key Arena is really an 8k seat bowl during SU games

Basically, no matter what state SU attendance is in, theres no on campus arena coming and a brand new NBA arena beats a decaying sub-standard NBA arena any day for any SU game

Well if the arena looks like this:

I don't see any room for curtains.

Just remember there is a new group taking over this arena. They want NBA and NHL teams.

From my understanding for SU and Storm type crowds the "new" Key can curtain off upper levels if need be. I highly doubt NBA returns to the Key no mater what they do to it. NHL just need a functioning site and they will be in Seattle fairly fast. Major concerts right now head to Tacoma, Everett, and Kent, unless its in the summer months where Safeco and Centruylink are used as well. SU will have a place at the "new" Key. But an off campus site kills the student following vibes like crazy but hopefully if they start winning more ppl will show up.

Winning will bring more people. Games at Connolly dont even bring students. But when the team is winning, the student section has been packed. 2014 vs Idaho it was filled from row 1 up to about row 25 or higher. Looked like a P5 student section. But right now free Lyft rides to and from Key Arena for students dont even work.

Dollar dug SU into a hole and attendance shows it. But the numbers also show, winning even as just an independent will bring 4-5k people per game. Thats obtainable again

It is possible the arena ownership could kick SU out down the road but it wont happen day 1 when SU is currently the only winter tenant they have. SU has reportedly been working on securing a spot in the new arena for some time so I'm sure they have a plan

Again, it looks like CBU's arena is taking shape. Another nice addition to the WAC...

CBU has the perfect arena for SU admittedly. I always liked C of Charelston's design for an SU-arena too

Love how CBU's is shaping up. Visually, it reminds me of the McKale Center at University of Arizona. Very light colored court and everything else dark. Kinda like this, but much smaller. Add proper lighting and the action on the court really does become the center of attention. Very well done!

The Bert Ogden Arena (the new venue UTRGV will use next season) appears to be a similar set up to the Las Vegas Orleans Arena; except a little larger at 8,500 seats.

OVG could very well kick them out before its done being that the start of 2018 through some point in 2020 no events are going to be played there due to the remodel. OVG could fill potential SU spots with other events like concerts and Disney on ice. This will make OVG more money at the Key. I hope SU doesnt get the 2 boot salute from OVG but its possible. Connolly is to small but I bet thats where they go for the next couple of years. Also SU won't get a sweet deal to play at the Key going forward I bet. Anyways Something needs to happen for Seattle to attract pro winter sports and if it shafts SU in the process that sucks but SU will survive and be alright.

Seattle U did sign and extension with Key Arena last year, not sure how long, so not sure how that will be handled. Hopefully not just terminated. If that is the case maybe SU can get a nice little cash bundle from OVG for early termination.

I still dont see why OVG would want to kick out 1 of the only 2 permanent tenats out before they have an NHL or NBA team. Theres 12+ SU home games. Instead of replacing SU with concerts or disney on ice why not both?

SU needs to do everything they can to play at the new arena if an on campus one cant be built. Players hate Connolly
