Royal Farms look worse than Shaw’s gym and Saint Augustine gym. NCCU’s gym would be considered a penthouse to Royal Farm Arena. Everybody goggle up this Royal Farm Arena for images and reviews
I'm not traveling to watch a game in a 50 year old shed, I can stay home for that, or go over to NCCU.
Folk ain’t going to games in Charlotte; heck more people be at some of the parties than the games on any given day! These party contribute to the atmosphere but nothing to the conference, schools or kids.Shut the parties down and Market the games so folk come back and support good basketball.

There will still be parties and get-togethers and all of that with the convention center and all that other stuff down the street, and there are plenty of eateries etc. Enjoy the seafood. You just never know, Baltimore might do well with this.I know you North Carolinians (well some of you at least) are salty that it's moving away, but shoot, now you will know how it feels to have to take that loooooooong-arse hump to go to the tournament. That is what we (BSU, VUU and VSU and now Lincoln) have been doing FOE-eva! Look at it this way. At least Baltimore has a decent amount of black culture, and an HBCU footprint with Morgan and Coppin and their alums right up the street (not to mention the BSU crew). Think of where the conference championship football game is right now .... I'm jus' sayin'... Try not to cuss me out in this response too much. I know y'all hotter than fish grease right about now. Y'all will be aight.
With a smaller arena you can increase the energy and excitement at the games. That increases the appeal of the games. More fans will buy tickets over time
