October 6th, 2017 — The Lakeland Magic, NBA G League affiliate of the Orlando Magic, unveiled their new home court to the media today. The new court sports the notable parquet design that the Orlando Magic have at the Amway Center, continuing the integration of the Magic brand from Orlando to Lakeland.
The new court has the word “Lakeland” in white lettering across one baseline, and the word “Magic” across the other. The painted area is in Magic blue highlighted by the Lakeland Magic secondary logo in the free-throw jump circles. The apron surrounding the court is in black, which makes the primary Magic colors stand out on the court. The entire floor is made and hand panted in the USA in Michigan.
Founding Partner RP Funding is featured at center court, with the Cornerstone Partners (Pepsi, Florida Hospital and Southeastern University) around the center court logo. Proud Partners Visit Central Florida (on the apron) and Bartow Ford (on the baseline) will also be on the court.
The new court is made up of Boston Square® pattern made from northern hard maple sports flooring which is highly sustainable product that can have a lifespan of 40-50 years. It has the latest innovation in locking systems called the RapidLatch which installs faster and maintains a tighter fit between panels and is the preferred choice of top NBA and NCAA programs.
Today’s private media event is a precursor to tomorrow’s Open House and Court Unveil event. Hosted by the Lakeland Magic staff, the community is welcome to join in on the opportunity to be among the first to see the court, as well as select their seats for the inaugural Magic season. The event, which will be held at the RP Funding Center, is tomorrow October 7th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The Lakeland Magic will play a total of 24 home games at the RP Funding Center as part of their inaugural 2017-18 season. The home opener is on November 10th at 7 p.m. against the Canton Charge, NBA G League affiliate of the Cleveland Cavaliers. For ticket information, visit lakelandmagic.com or call 863.825.3258.
