PBA to lower ticket prices to lure more fans to games

Sun Star Bacolod - - Prime Sports -

THE PBA is mov­ing to make tick­ets more af­ford­able to fans.

PBA com­mis­sioner Wil­lie Mar­cial on Thurs­day bared the league’s plan to sell tick­ets at a dis­counted rate for the com­ing 44th sea­son and make the prices af­ford­able to fans.

Un­der the promo that is still sub­ject to the ap­proval of the De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try, fans need only to present a proof of pur­chase of prod­ucts of the league’s 12 mem­ber teams to avail of dis­counts.

For ex­am­ple, a fan will be able to avail of the dis­count if he or she presents a bot­tle cap of San Miguel Beer or Ginebra San Miguel prod­ucts, and even a Mer­alco billing or a ticket ride from a Dyip pub­lic util­ity ve­hi­cle.

The move hopes to bring more fans to the games and im­prove the at­ten­dance of the games which has been the peren­nial prob­lem for the past few sea­sons.

At present, ticket are priced be­tween P50 for gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets to P2,900 for court­side seats./ spin.ph
