GRIZZLIES ANNOUNCE 10th ANNIVERSARY 10-GAME AND HALF-SEASON

POWER PACKS FOR 2010-11 SEASON

Memphis, Tennessee – The Memphis Grizzlies are celebrating their 10th season in Memphis, presented by Pepsi, by introducing their new 10th Anniversary 10 Game Power Packs, in addition to all new half season plans.

Starting at just $10 per game ($100 total), Grizzlies fans can commemorate the team’s decade in Memphis with the option of two 10th Anniversary 10 Game Power Packs to chose from.  The ‘Big Game Pack’ includes the biggest games of the season, starting with the Grizzlies Opening Night contest at home against Joe Johnson and the Atlanta Hawks on Oct. 27 and then rolling into the lone visit of the season to FedExForum by the newly formed All-Star trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (Nov. 20).  The ‘Big Game Pack’ will also give fans the chance to see the showcase Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration Day game against Derrick Rose and the Chicago Bulls (Jan. 17), the first visit by the 2010 NBA Draft’s No. 1 overall draft pick John Wall and the Washington Wizards (Jan. 29), a matchup with Kobe Bryant and the NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers (Feb. 7) and a late season contest against Southwest Division rival New Orleans Hornets led by Chris Paul (April 10).

The second 10th Anniversary 10-Game Power Pack will give fans the opportunity to enjoy the ‘Weekend Pack.’ This 10th Anniversary 10 Game Power Pack includes the top weekend matchups of the year, along with the first visit of the 2010-11 season from Kobe Bryant and the Lakers (Nov. 30).  The ‘Weekend Pack’ also includes visits from Boston’s Big Three (Nov. 13) and perennial All-Stars Dirk Nowitzki (Jan. 15) and Tim Duncan (March 27). 

For fans who want to get more of the action from the upcoming 2010-11 campaign, two Half-Season Power Packs (20 games) will also be available.  The two Half-Season Plans offer additional benefits including the ability to exchange unused tickets to select games, automatically be signed up as an MVP account holder, which allows the option to forward tickets to friends, family and clients, merchandise discounts at the Grizzlies Den Team Store and much more.

“We feel that the people of Memphis are brimming with anticipation for our upcoming 10th season in Memphis, so we wanted to put together Power Packs that add to that excitement with the best matchups of the season,” said Grizzlies President of Business Operations Greg Campbell.  “These 10-Game and Half-Season packs will give our fans a chance to see excitement on the FedExForum floor that has been 10 years in the making.”

The 10th Anniversary and Half Season Power Packs seats are available in all sections of FedExForum including Courtside, Plaza, First Tennessee Club and Terrace Levels.

Fans will want to act quickly, as the Grizzlies are again teaming up with Circle K to offer a free Circle K gift card valued between $25-$200 with the purchase of a 10th Anniversary 10-Game Power Pack or a Half-Season Pack, for a limited time only.
