Detroit Pistons Introduce New Courtside Club This Season

With all of the high expectations for the Detroit Pistons in the coming years, the team has decided to add another VIP experience for fans at the game. The CURE Insurance Courtside Club will be a VIP bar that sits behind the basket at LCA. The Club will offer select drinks and appetizers to the patrons inside.

The bad news is that this most likely won't be something that everyday fans like you and I get to experience. The bar is reserved for courtside seat ticket holders within the first few rows of the floor. These seats are normally sold out for years in advance, so I don't see it being an option for most of us. If you want to get more information about the new club, you can get on an email list here.
