The Golden State Warriors have announced that their season tickets will be capped at a whopping 14,500, and will begin making a waiting list, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
“We looked at the experience of other teams who had the opportunity to sell out their buildings on season tickets alone,” said Rick Welts, the Warriors’ president and chief operating officer. “And we determined that wasn’t a good idea. There are people who want to sample our product who just can’t afford season tickets and we don’t want to shut them out.”
Capping it off at 14,500 means that the stadium will have about 5,000 or so seats available for single game purchases.
The cheapest season ticket to Warriors games this season costs $15 per game, while the most expensive run $2,700 per seat per game. In order to get to its current number, the team says it sold 3,700 season tickets since April.
Believe it or not, Golden State isn’t even the only team to have started a waiting list, a few teams beat them to the punch.
Other teams that have waiting lists include the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and New York Knicks.
