Little Caesars Arena to Install Black Seats
Little Caesars Arena announced today that it will begin a multi-month process of installing permanent black seats. During the transition, the seats in the lower bowl will be covered with temporary black seat covers for all arena events.
The installation of permanent black seats is expected to begin in December will be completed in phases. Guests will not be affected by the project, as work will be conducted during non-event times.
“We evaluated every aspect of arena operations during the inaugural year, and after numerous discussions with the Pistons and other stakeholders, we have made the decision to install black seats at Little Caesars Arena,” said Chris Granger, Group President, Sports & Entertainment, Ilitch Holdings, Inc.
“When the Pistons agreed to move to downtown Detroit and play their home games at Little Caesars Arena, many design features were either finalized or already in production. We very much value our partnership with the Pistons organization and have made this decision together. This change is also made with support and input from industry-leading concert promoters and our television partners at Fox Sports Detroit. The transition to permanent black seats will take several months but will have no impact on our guest’s event-day experience.”
