DeltaPlex closing

Seems like the Gold are headed to Van Andel

I saw another article earlier today where the owners all but confirmed it. I believe an announcement should come soon. 

On a side note, I do feel like ownership of the Gold have done a way better job at advertising and promoting than the Drive ever did. I think they could make VAA work. I never made it to a game at Delta Plex because I hate that arena, but I would definitely check out a game downtown. I'm sure there are more people like me who are willing to check out a sporting event downtown partly due to all the other amenities that come with it.

Aren't the Drive and Gold owners the same? I thought they just changed affiliation when the Pistons moved their G-League team to Detroit.

That's a good move. It seems very different than the Hoops in the last days of the CBA. There are a lot of creative ideas out there for stadium experiences that would be much easier to pull off at Van Andel than at the DeltaPlex.

Also uncreative ideas like $2 beer night, which packs Griffins games already given the ability to go from the game to the bars in a few stumbles.

You may be correct. It could just be that the Nuggets organization gave GR way more money for advertising and promotion. It just seems like ever since the switch happened, I started seeing billboards, community events, theme nights, etc.
