MU Signs New Lease At The Bradley Center

Late Thursday the Bradley Center announced that MU signed a new lease, keeping the Golden Eagles on 4th and State through the 2011 season. The higlihghts:

  • For the first time, when base thresholds are met, MU will get a cut of merchandise sales at the Bradley Center;
  • MU will also continue to receive luxury box revenue;
  • Most importantly, MU is now the arena's second most powerful tenant. Once the Bucks finalize their schedule, MU is next in line.
This last point is huge - - MU will now have greater scheduling flexibililty than ever before, a tremendous benefit for the program. In the past, MU was slotted behind the Bucks and the Admirals (if not more).
