Warriors Tickets Nearing $400 Average Ahead of 2016-17 NBA Season
October 20, 2016
Want to see the Splash Brothers team up with newest member Kevin Durant in person this season? Expect to pay an arm and a leg if so.
After a record-breaking 2015-16 campaign, the Golden State Warriors again enter the upcoming NBA season as clear favorites in the Western Conference. This time around, though, they'll have Durant dressing in blue and gold, and his presence in the Bay Area is making prices skyrocket for Warriors tickets on the secondary market.
On TicketIQ, the average resale price for Warriors tickets at Oracle Arena during the 2016-17 NBA season is $405.94. However, that marks a 20 percent dip from last year's $506.96 average at the beginning of the season - the season following their latest NBA championship. The Warriors will be the most expensive team to see at home this season, trumping the New York Knicks and their $374.80 season average at Madison Square Garden.
The Warriors will play their most expensive home game of the season against the Cleveland Cavaliers on January 16. As it stands now the average resale price for Warriors vs. Cavaliers tickets is $752.49 and the cheapest ticket is listed from $258. Visits from the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers follow, with a January 28 game against the Lakers and an April 12 game against the Clippers averaging $540.99 and $515.06, respectively.
Don't expect to get in for much less if looking to attend the Warriors' cheapest games this season. They'll host the New Orleans Pelicans on November 7 in the least expensive game at Oracle Arena this year, with tickets averaging $264.61 and the get-in price starting from $82. Three weeks later they'll welcome the Atlanta Hawks, where tickets now own a secondary market average of $276.05 and a $114 get-in price.
