We covered this yesterday when the HereWeBuy.org website opened shop for upcoming season ticket pledging, but now with twenty-four hours passed – the results of the efforts are staggering.

In essentially less than a day, Sacramento King fans and local businesses have pledged over $8,000,000 dollars worth of season tickets to the Sacramento Kings, in an effort to keep the team in Sacramento. Keep in mind – these aren’t “sponsorships” from businesses – simply ticket sales. There are a handful of companies who’ve already pledged hefty sponsorships deals – some even offering as much as 1% of a new arena cost.

Nearly 2,400 fans and businesses alike have put their money where their mouth is and given the historic loyalty of the Sacramento fan base, it’s undoubtedly something the NBA will be forced to listen to.

Nearly $8.3 million dollars in ticket sales in a day span – think about that.

Sacramento King fans are an impressive group.
