Pistons install ‘seat covers’ over the sea(t) of red

The Detroit News’s Rod Beard reports that the Pistons have found a novel way to deal with the empty red seats at Little Caesars Arena:

Pistons fans are seeing red no more.

At Little Caesars Arena, there’s a lot less red — the color of all the seats in the arena — after the Pistons added a few thousand black seat covers, sponsored by the Art Van furniture company, on Monday.

The seat covers were added the day after Art Van Elslander, the founder of Art Van company, died at the age of 87. Pistons officials confirmed that the covers are part of a new corporate partnership with Art Van and are not related directly to Van Elslander’s passing.

The agreement appears to be with the Pistons and not the Red Wings.

Continued…I don’t believe that the Wings will cover the seats, but one never knows.

  1. so if i understand the Pistons do have the same problem as the Red Wings ?

    Maybe there is something wrong with LCA ??

    1. The Pistons are also very mediocre, and just like the Red Wings, ticket prices have increased for the new facility.
