STAMPEDE RELEASE NBA DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE SCHEDULE
FAN-FRIENDLY DATES WILL SHOWCASE D-LEAGUE TALENT

BOISE, IDAHO (July 18, 2006) – The Idaho Stampede announced today the release of their 2006-07 regular season schedule, and their first as a member of the NBA Development League.

There are many fan-friendly changes to this season’s schedule compared to years past. There are a total of 24 home games spread out through 20 weeks, minimizing long home stands where multiple home games are played in a few days. The regular season will be played on mostly weekend dates, starting with Opening Night on Friday, November 24 and ending on Saturday, April 14. Fourteen total home games will either fall on a Friday or Saturday evening, making it easier for fans with hectic weekday schedules to attend more games.

There are 12 teams in the D-League this season, each affiliated with either two or three NBA teams, giving fans multiple chances to see future NBA stars at Qwest Arena in downtown Boise.

Midway through the season, All-Stars from the D-League will be showcased during the NBA All-Star Weekend in Las Vegas, NV on February 17-18. The D-League All-Star Game will be played on Saturday, February 17 at Jam Session Center Court immediately following practices for the East and West NBA All-Star Teams and will be televised by NBA TV. All-Star selections will be selected by a vote that includes fans, as well as D-League players and coaches. This will hopefully give many Stampede players the opportunity to show off their skills to a national audience, as well as give priceless national exposure to the Treasure Valley.

Fans interested in ticket information should rush to www.idahostampede.com or call (208) 388-4667 as team officials say that there are very few floor or mid-court court seats still available. Season tickets start as little as $175 per seat for all 24 home games. The Stampede have convenient programs to assist season ticket holders with any games missed. Ticket holders can either donate tickets to the many organizations that request tickets throughout the season, or exchange their unused tickets at the Stampede office for future regular season games.

WITNESS THE FUTURE!
