Enjoy an exhibition of some of the greatest basketball players in the world outside of their normal venues when you purchase NBA Preseason tickets via TicketSmarter. The NBA Preseason is when veteran players get in shape and rookie players try to make a spot on the starting lineup. It is also when players are required to pass a physical to see if the team should pay for their services. Just because a player is under a contract does not technically mean they will receive full payment. The first NBA Preseason games were played on October 1, 2009, using replacement referees from the WNBA and NBA Development League. This was the first time that replacement referees were used since the 1995-1996 season. However, the NBA and the regular referees reached a deal on October 23, 2009.
The NBA also likes to use the preseason as an opportunity to expand its reach in untapped markets, such as, Kansas City, Missouri. One of the preseason games takes place between the Los Angeles Clippers and Shanghai Sharks at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, Hawaii and has been named the Clippers Hawaii Classic. Be sure to secure your NBA Preseason tickets via TicketSmarter and let us take the hassle out of your ticket-buying experience.
Ticket prices for the NBA Preseason games differ depending on the size of the venue and seating location. Courtside seats are the most expensive. Venue location will also play into the price of tickets, as some events take place overseas.
Courtside seats range from $900 to $1,300, while tickets in level 100 at center court cost between $300 and $550. Other tickets on the 100 level range from $200 to $350. Level-200 tickets range from $199 to $250 for center sections and $120 to $190 for other areas.
The NBA Preseason is when the action begins for a new NBA season. Experience the game up close and in-person in a city that may not have a franchise. You can secure tickets for a preseason game at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri or the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, home of the Houston Rockets. The NBA also schedules games overseas, like the matchup between the LA Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets hosted in Shanghai, as part of the NBA China Games program.
Tickets go on sale soon after the preseason schedule is announced. Be sure to check back with the TicketSmarter website to see when tickets will be available.
The best place to sit at an NBA Preseason game is courtside, which is the most expensive seat for a normal or postseason ticket. However, it is not a bad idea to take advantage of the significantly cheaper price during the preseason. The 100 level of a venue can also offer a great option and premium view of the game while being much cheaper than a courtside ticket. Corner seats on the 100 level are also a good option for fans on a budget or for large groups. The 200 level offers an elevated view of the action, while center sections are the most desired and often the first to sell.
