Warriors to be renamed Flint Warriors?

The Michigan Warriors have announced that 2011-12 season tickets are now on sale - "Blue Collar Play…The Warriors Way."

The Warriors have launched their “Rename the Warriors” season ticket drive for the upcoming season. The Warriors have cut ticket prices from last year and are pushing to sell 1,500 season tickets for the upcoming season. If this goal is met and voted on by the fans, Warriors owner Pat McEachern has agreed to rename the team the Flint Warriors.

“We have heard the fans across Mid-Michigan say that they wished that the team was named 'Flint,'" said McEachern. “We are giving them the opportunity to change our name, but we need the community to support our efforts."

If the Warriors sell 1500 season tickets, every season ticket holder will be polled and be given the choice of keeping the Michigan name or change it to the Flint Warriors. The decision will be based on more than 75 percent of the vote to change the team name.

For the upcoming 2011-12 season, the Warriors have lowered season ticket prices from last year’s price of $243 for 27 games to $240 for 30 home games (regular season and exhibition) for lower bowl in the center of the arena. All other tickets for an adult will be priced at $210 for the 30-game home schedule, as compared to last year’s price of $189 for 27 games. Prices for students, seniors and children's season tickets will be priced at $210 and $180 respectively for the same seats as listed above.

For the upcoming season, season ticket holders will be able to park in a season ticket holder lot for a reduced price, as well as enter the arena thru a season ticket holder entrance, and also have the opportunity to upgrade tickets and receive additional “arena bucks” with their season ticket purchase. As a season ticket holder, they will also receive many other amenities that come with the VIP access, including preferred seating for Warriors playoff home games.
