Sprint Center Is Cutting The Brigade A Deal To Return In 2011

Yes, the Brigade are such an attractive tenant that the Sprint Center is willing to cut a deal for them.

Shani Tate, director of communications and marketing for the Sprint Center, said there was an agreement for arena football to return to the arena in 2011 and that “there are some things we can do that can help from a cost perspective and also enhance the gameday entertainment for the fans.”

What a week for the Sprint Center.

The Big 12 nearly dies which would've eliminated any reason for the average Kansas City sports fan to go there over the next five years.

Then, as if a phoenix rising from the ashes (too much?), the Sprint Center returns with the Brigade.

The owner of the Brigade, says "They're going to help us", as he negotiates a new lease fee with the Sprint Center.
