Display Advertising and Sponsorship Agreement With ISP Sports and Greensboro Coliseum
The Greensboro Coliseum has barter agreements with some local companies and with the Greensboro City Council meeting on 7-20-2010 they were funding a new facility called the VIP Room. It was pointed out on another post at TRIADWATCH CLICKHERE about questions for Coliseum Director Matt Brown in regards to bartering services and construction jobs at the coliseum . This post and other post in the coming days will show you what we received in a open records request under North Carolina state law inquiry into the barter agreements at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Part #7 ISP Sports now a part of IMG , here is a link to that report of the merger CLICKHERE
This agreement is a display advertising/sponsorship sales agreement from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2013 . Where the City of Greensboro taxpayers pay a $35,000 management services fee to ISP sports. ISP now IMG will get 6 Schiffman's Club seats at no cost which translates to about $18,000 free of charge to IMG. IMG also gets to use a luxury suite at no cost as well on a as needed basis and when available. They also get to have office space along with a internet connection with local and long distance provided as well. There is a lot in this contract which can be seen above .
One aspect to see in the contract was to read about how IMG will want to add if built and now it is going to happen in regards to the new aquatic center and also the amphitheatre. To see this in the contract under the purpose section of contract really shows just how far along this whole deal to add the aquatic center and also the amphitheatre were to Matt Brown's plan for future because they already had it a part of contract in 2009.
IMG sports also did not want to be a part of the ACC hall of champions also in this contract they run off a Matt Brown coliseum director wish list as to what he wants to have on the greensboro coliseum property but IMG didn't want to be a part of, here is a few of the list:
relocation of the visitors and convention bureau offices
the city's official visitor center
sports commission offices
nightclubs or other live entertainment venues
restaurants or hotels
If you would like to see what the Carlyle Club now called the Sciffman's Club looks like CLICKHERE , it is now called this because at council's last meeting in September of 2010 Mattt Brown has a new agreement with this local jeweler.
