In 1989, the Magic became Orlando's official NBA basketball team, playing the sport competitively with teams from across the U.S. The Orlando Magic players and staff members are leaders on and off the court, contributing in numerous ways to the Orlando community. Since its inception, the Magic have earned five Division championships (1995, 1996, 2008, 2009, 2010) and recorded seven 50+ win seasons. The team also won the Eastern Conference title in both 1995 and 2009.
An Orlando Magic game is a fun event for both children and adults. Home games are played at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando, which was named SportsBusiness Journal's 2012 Sports Facility of the Year. Basketball games are highlighted not only by the action of the game, but by the spirit of the fans. You can see the Magic Dancers perform, as well as the kid's dance team, the Magic Minis. The Magic AirTran Flight Crew leads game break contests, shoots T-shirt cannons into the crowd, and gets fans excited before, during, and after the game.
For the 2013-14 season, there will be 2,500 seats priced at $20 or less, 8,000 priced at $40 or less, and 10,000 priced at $50 or less. Dining and bar options before, during and after the game include the Magic Grill, Jernigan's, ONE80 Grey Goose Lounge, and more, as well as a plethora of concession stands througout the venue.
The Orlando Magic cares about the community it calls home, and with its success, the team has given more than $2 million back through sponsored events, donated tickets, autographed merchandise, grants and scholarships. Programs iniatiated by the Orlando Magic impact about 75,000 children each year, while a Magic staff-wide initiative provides more than 6,000 volunteer hours annually.
In the past 22 years, more than $17 million from the Orlando Magic basketball team has been given to local nonprofit community organizations by way of the Orlando Magic Youth Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund that serves at-risk minors in the city.
