Intrust Bank Arena made more money in January than it did its first month in January 2010.
The arena’s net profit for January was $68,137, assistant Sedgwick County manager Ron Holt told commissioners this morning. There were 15 performances that month.
In January 2010, total gross building income was higher, but net building income was lower at $23,456.
“We’re off to a great start from a financial perspective,” Holt said.
The arena is playing host to the NCAA women’s basketball tournament next week. Commissioner Tim Norton said the tournament is an inspiration to local female athletes with dreams of college competition. Commissioner Karl Peterjohn noted that his sister was the most talented athlete in his family.
