Thanks to a new NCAA-approved seating configuration with custom seating riser installations from Staging Concepts, thousands of additional fans were able to attend the NCAA Basketball Tournament in Detroit and Houston. This new and enhanced seating configuration involved a major dramatic move of the basketball court from the end zone to the middle of the arena. Almost 4,000 portable platforms were used, and the installations will also be used at Final Four Tournaments in 2009 and 2011. NCAA officials estimate that the expansive seating configuration will provide $4 million in additional revenue, while enhancing the collegiate atmosphere with thousands of loyal students in the new sections’ seating cheering on their teams.
