706ers New Home: The James Brown Arena

AUGUSTA, SEPTEMBER 20, 2018 - The Augusta 706ers are excited to announce that they will play their 2018-2019 home games at Augusta’s James Brown Arena. After several months of talks with the arena’s management, the 706ers have secured their home venue for the upcoming season.

When asked about what playing in the James Brown arena means for this young franchise, President and CEO Scott Killebrew said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for our team, and we couldn’t be more fired up. We had our eyes on the James Brown Arena as a home venue from the moment we started this team, and now we’ll be tipping off there in just a couple months, it’s surreal. I know that our guys are excited to be playing in front of their home crowd, on its biggest stage, and trust me when I say, they will not disappoint.”

Vice President Devin Burnside was excited to see professional sports come back to the city of Augusta at such an iconic venue: “I love pro sports, from football to baseball to basketball to golf and everything in-between. To be able to share my passion with the city of Augusta is truly a dream come true, and I can’t think of any better place to do that than the James Brown Arena.”

Scheduling for the upcoming ABA season is currently underway, but look for your 706ers to take the court in their home opener November 10th.
