Inside the Lakers: If you want to see the NBA’s top teams at Staples Center, be prepared to pay top dollar. The Lakers, following the lead of a number of other teams in other sports, announced that they have instituted a new variable ticket pricing policy for the upcoming season.
Tickets in various sections will have three different prices for 2008-09.
No. 1, a regular individual game price.
No. 2, a discounted season ticket price.
No. 3, a premium price for seven so-called premium games.
The seven games are: Dec. 25 against Boston, Jan. 19 against Cleveland, Jan. 25 against San Antonio, Feb. 20 against New Orleans, Feb. 26 against Phoenix, March 15 against Dallas and April 3 against Houston.
Individual game tickets will go on sale Oct. 4 at Ticketmaster locations, at ticketmaster.com and by calling (800) 4NBATIX. There are roughly 1,000 seats available for each home game this season, the team said in a press release.
