Indianapolis, IN--- The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that it has targeted Oakland CA as one of its first four cities in which to build a 2500-seat sports and entertainment venue that will not only house the ABA California Golden Tigers basketball team but will feature concerts, boxing, wrestling, MMA, rodeos, roller derby and other sports and entertainment activities at greatly reduced prices.
The ABA recently formed ABA Sports Realty Group (ASRG) (www.abaliveaction.com) whose mission it is to build state-of-the-art venues for all of its teams. "The ABA is the largest professional sports league in the US with over 175 teams," stated ABA CEO Joe Newman. "It is about time we brought the price of sports and entertainment down as we have with ABA games so that concerts and other sporting events could be affordable for all - sort of being the McDonalds of sports and entertainment."
Part of the ABA's venue program is SeatBiz, an exciting new opportunity that allows a person to own a seat for his/her own personal use or to sell the seat for each event and receive a royalty every time the seat is sold for any event. In essence, the people of Oakland will have equity ownership of the venue and will profit from the ownership. "There has never been anything like this in venue ownership," added Ivan Davis, owner of Golden Tigers, who is overseeing the development of the project in Oakland for the ABA.
The ABA is the largest professional sports league in the US and also the most diversified professional sports league with over 75% of its owners being African-American, Hispanic,
Asian and women. The ABA also owns the WABA, ABA Australia, ABA Mexico and is looking to expand into the Caribbean and Canada. For more information about the ABA, ASRG or SeatBiz or expansion, visit www.abaliveaction.com or email Ivan Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org .
