NC State, Canes agree how PNC Arena will be shared

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Jim Rutherford, general manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, and Randy Woodson, Chancellor of N.C. State University, announced Friday a new agreement to establish guidelines for the scheduling process at PNC Arena.

The announcement Friday came after problems arose between the two over who would have the rights to certain dates, since the Canes and the N.C. State basketball program share the facility.

Rutherford and Woodson have each signed a document outlining procedures for scheduling during NC State's annual athletic calendar, which runs from the last week of August through the second week of March.

The guidelines dictate that:

  • Gale Force will not schedule events on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays during the ACC basketball season before the release of the ACC schedule.
  • No later than Nov. 1 of each year, N.C. State will release all but three Fridays from the final week of August through the second week of March for the following academic year. After July 15, the Fridays not used by Gale Force will be released back to NC State as available for basketball.
  • No later than Nov. 15 of each year, Gale Force will provide to NC State all dates that Gale Force proposes to submit to the National Hockey League (NHL) as preferred game dates for the following NHL season.
  • No later than May 15 of each year, N.C. State will release all unbooked dates from the last week of August through Dec. 31. This will allow Gale Force to submit its final schedule request for Carolina Hurricanes games to the NHL by June 1. Following the release of the Hurricanes' schedule, all remaining open dates during that time period will be released to N.C. State in order to develop its final non-conference basketball schedule.
  • At Gale Force's request, N.C. State will release up to three days from Nov. 1-April 1 for Gale Force to schedule major single-day events grossing in excess of $500,000.
  • Each year, N.C. State will release five consecutive days during the fall semester exam period in December for Gale Force to schedule Disney on Ice.
  • Each year, N.C. State will release 7-10 consecutive days for Gale Force to schedule the Ringling Brothers Circus in February. Gale Force will notify N.C. State of the dates no later than July 15 of the prior year.

The Canes open the season Friday night against the Detroit Red Wings.
