Not impossible, but difficult.
18 men's basketball games per year won't pay for the place. Women's basketball would add a little more revenue, but not a lot.
The arena would have to compete for concerts and other events, and it isn't like Chicago us under-served for those kinds of venues.
You are correct. *
There aren't arenas of that size on the North side though
An accessible Lincoln Park venue could be attractive
Metro, Park West, and The Vic are nearby
Plenty of acts may want to sell more than 1,500 tickets.
Completely crazy idea, but hear me out.
The Wolves fan base is suburban families with kids. *
So much for that grand plan. *
The location is far better than the same size competition.
I used to live over there
I think it'd be a great location
The Sears Centre is in the middle of nowhere
And probably won't be competing for the same events
