Warriors Sign Season Ticket Holder Marcus Hong
Daly City Resident Returns For 11th Season Under Risk-Free Renewal Agreement


The Golden State Warriors have signed season ticket holder Marcus Hong for the 2011-12 season, co-owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber announced today. A member to the greatest fan base in all of professional sports, Hong came to terms on a risk-free agreement that will ensure his place at Oracle Arena next season.

“This renewal plan is just one small example of our commitment to our shareholders,” said Lacob. “We owe it to our incredible fans, like Marcus, to raise our level of expectations for this organization and to perform at the highest level in all possible phases.”

Hong, who resides in Daly City, has been a season ticket holder since the 2001 season. A Warriors fan since the late 80’s when he was growing up in San Francisco, Hong lists Tim Hardaway as his favorite all-time Warriors player and the team’s triumph over the Dallas Mavericks in the 2007 NBA Playoffs as his greatest Warriors’ memory.

“I attend most of the games now with my four-year-old son, Kyle,” Hong said. “He loves basketball and knows all of the current players by their names, uniforms numbers and faces. Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis are probably his favorites, but he loves all the Warriors players.”

“We feel very fortunate to retain a fan like Marcus for the upcoming season,” said Guber. “He is a valued member of our organization, and one of the key components to the unmatched atmosphere at Oracle Arena. Our goal is to honor and reward our fans’ loyalty in every way possible.”




As a renewed season ticket holder, Hong was automatically entered for the chance to win prizes at a recent Warriors game, including the opportunity to shoot a half court shot for $10,000 cash. See a video recap of his experience below, including the prize package he chose.
