Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May22, 2017, MSG Sports Entertainment, LLC (MSG SE), a
wholly-owned subsidiary of The Madison Square Garden Company
(theCompany) and CharlesF. Dolan (the G550 Lessee), a director of
the Company, entered into an aircraft lease agreement (the G550
Dry Lease Agreement), to which the G550 Lessee may lease on a
non-exclusive basis MSG SEs Gulfstream Aerospace G550 aircraft.
Under the terms of the G550 Dry Lease Agreement, the G550 Lessee
will pay MSG SE rent at an hourly rate and specified expenses of
each flight.

On May22, 2017, MSG SE and Sterling Aviation, LLC (Sterling), a
company controlled by CharlesF. Dolan, also entered into a
reciprocal aircraft lease agreement (the GV Dry Lease Agreement),
to which MSG SE may lease on a non-exclusive basis Sterlings
Gulfstream Aerospace G-V aircraft (the GV Aircraft). Under the
terms of the GV Dry Lease Agreement, MSG SE will pay Sterling
rent at an hourly rate and specified expenses of each flight.
Both the G550 Dry Lease Agreement and the GV Dry Lease Agreement
include true-up mechanisms such that, to the extent one partys
annual usage exceeds the other partys annual usage of the other
partys aircraft, the party with the greater aircraft usage would
pay an additional hourly rate with respect to excess hours
intended to cover the additional costs. In addition, the
reciprocal arrangements provide for equitable adjustment in the
event that discrepancies in hours of usage or other factors cause
the arrangement to be economically unfair to either party.

Officer of the Company, entered into an aircraft time sharing
agreement (the Time Sharing Agreement) with MSG SE, to which
Mr.OConnor may lease the GV Aircraft from MSG SE for limited

Mr.OConnor will pay for the actual expenses of such flight as
listed in the agreement, but not to exceed the maximum amount
permitted under Federal Aviation Administration rules.
