Warriors un­veil plan to sell $25 tick­ets for home games

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - FROM STAFF AND WIRE RE­PORTS — Jon Becker, East Bay Times

It turns out some tick­ets to Golden State Warriors games at their new home in San Fran­cisco ac­tu­ally are af­ford­able.

How about $25 to watch Steph Curry and his team­mates try to reach the NBA Fi­nals for the sixth straight year in their new digs at Chase Cen­ter?

The Warriors made af­ford­abil­ity a re­al­ity Wed­nes­day by an­nounc­ing dual pro­grams of­fer­ing 250 tick­ets for each game to be sold for just $25.

Cer­tainly sounds a bit bet­ter than those $100 passes that al­lowed fans en­try into Or­a­cle Arena last sea­son, but no di­rect views of the court.

If not for the new pro­grams, the cheap­est ticket cur­rently avail­able for the Warriors of­fi­cial chris­ten­ing of Chase Cen­ter — the sea­son opener against Kawhi Leonard and the Los An­ge­les Clip­pers on Oct. 24 — would be $188 for a top-sec­tion seat.

The Warriors will of­fer 125 tick­ets for $25 apiece to each home game through the for­ma­tion of “Dub Na­tion Deals.” In or­der to qual­ify for those up­per tier tick­ets, fans will need to reg­is­ter at www.warriors.com/tick­ets/deals, where win­ners will re­ceive a text mes­sage the day be­fore home games of­fer­ing them a chance to pur­chase up too four tick­ets at $25 each. One catch is fans can only pur­chase the $25 tick­ets once per month us­ing the Dub Na­tion Deals.

In ad­di­tion, there will be 125 other tick­ets avail­able for $25 a pop and set aside for the row­di­est of fans though the “Splash Zone” fan club sec­tion. In or­der to qual­ify for a chance to buy tick­ets in the Splash Zone, fans are asked to send in their own “en­er­getic hype video” to au­di­[email protected], show­ing how they’ll bring the en­ergy to Chase Cen­ter.
