Suites & Arena Overview
FedExForum, located in Memphis, Tennessee, is home to the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the University of Memphis Tigers men’s basketball team. When not in use by one of these Memphis basketball teams, the building frequently serves as a concert venue.
The facility is owned by the New Memphis Arena Public Building Authority and operated by Hoops LP (a holding company which also owns a majority share of the Memphis Grizzlies).
FedEx Corporation is the title sponsor with venue naming rights. Notable events hosted at FedExForum include a 2004 IBF Light Heavyweight title fight, five Conference USA men’s basketball tournaments, two NCAA Division I men’s basketball regional tournaments, UFC 107, and the inaugural American Athletic Conference men’s basketball tournament.
FedExForum, designed to pay tribute to Memphis' colorful musical heritage, includes musically-themed areas throughout the Plaza and Terrace concourses which highlight the Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Jazz, Gospel, Country, and Modern music genres.
Suite Seating Options
Total suites: 63
Individual suite capacity: 16-24
Total capacity of all suites: 1,512
Host to an average of 120 plus events each year, FedExForum offers a multitude of entertainment options. Many VIP seating areas and private luxury boxes are available only through annual or multi-year leases; others can be booked on a partial-season or per-event basis. FedExForum can accommodate groups and parties of various sizes. Suite types include:
- Courtside Suites, Floor Level (seat 16-24)
- Club Suites, First Tennessee Club Level (seat 16-24)
- Party Suites, First Tennessee Club Level (seat 24-40)
FedExForum features 27 Courtside Suites, 32 Club Suites, four Party Suites, and 80 Club-Level boxes on two private concourses. The arena’s four Party Suites are typically better suited to large groups, are often available for a single game (as opposed to full season leases), and include food, beverage, and parking passes in the purchase price. In addition to the listings publicly displayed on the SuiteHop Marketplace, we are often able to help clients secure both private and Party Suites through our offline network.
Private Rentals & Suite Ticket Prices
Premium full suite rentals for popular games and special events typically fall within the range of $2,500 to $3,500 depending on the size and location of the luxury box. The same suites for lower demand games and events can often be reserved for $2,000 to $2,750 (the Memphis Grizzlies use a level “A” “B” or “C” rating system to designate game interest and anticipated ticket demand). Party Suites rent from $3,500 to $9,750 per game, depending on the size of the group and location of the suite. Individual suite tickets are often comparably priced to seats in the Club sections or other desirable areas at FedExForum.
Annual Suite Leases
Full-season, half-season, and 15-game leases are available directly from the Memphis Grizzlies at FedExForum. Full-season Courtside Suites typically lease from $180,000 to $260,000 per year while Club Suites range from $110,000 to $200,000 per year. Half-season leases are generally offered at a 42 percent discount from the full-season lease price, while 15-game leases are offered at a 55 percent discount from the full-season lease price.
Luxury suites are currently being offered for sale in one, three, five, seven, and ten year terms. Suite owners with annual leases are generally allowed to buy additional non-suite tickets, as well 8 Standing Room Only (SRO) suite tickets per game.
Renting a FedExForum Suite Through SuiteHop
Pricing on SuiteHop is market-based, with suite owners determining the price at which they choose to list. The list price is a reflection of availability, the popularity of the event, the exact location of the suite, whether or not catering and parking passes are included, and the suite owner’s choice of selling their suite in its entirety or by the individual seat, among other factors.
Benefits of buying through SuiteHop may include...
- access to suites that are not otherwise available elsewhere, including when the event is sold out,
- ability to purchase individual tickets within suites,
- market-based pricing can be below box office pricing,
- transparent, real-time online pricing and ordering, and,
- availability of full event planning services including ticket distribution, RSVP/invitation management, celebrity appearances, branded promotional/gift items, dedicated in-suite concierge service, and more!
Renting a FedExForum Suite Through The Venue
Pricing through the box office is determined by team and/or venue management. Suite pricing is not typically published online and often requires offline contact with a sales representative. Large “Party Suites” sometimes sell individual tickets as part of a shared environment, while private suites usually require purchase of the entire space.
Benefits of buying through the venue may include…
- full year and multi-year suite leases only available through venue,
- venue pricing that is sometimes below marketplace pricing, and,
- a direct relationship with the venue for access to future promotions.
