Warriors unveil plan to sell $25 tickets for home games
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.
