The NBA Basketball league never had any formal ticketing counter from where fans could get the tickets to the NBA matches. NBA is a major league and it was shameful for such a league to lack such facilities. Not only was it shameful on their part. Many people took this opportunity to do forgery with tickets and cheat fans. A lot of money had gone to waste.
Often fans would go to their respective team websites looking for tickets but unfortunately they were disappointed every time. Certain surveys were constructed and the result was found that 70% of the fans never got tickets at the websites. Another survey also concluded that two out of three fans got tickets through secondary sources and Stub Hub.
Stub Hub gained the market by promising fans that those who had been cheated with fake tickets would be given a replacement ticket. There are four teams who are not with Ticketmaster. The teams are the Jazz, Rockets, Nuggets and Trail blazers. Now that Ticket master and NBA have decided to coincide with each other every fan can get a ticket from the website.
This is very good on behalf of the organization as well as the fans. The fans can no longer be cheated. They need not pay excessive money for tickets anymore and they can easily get tickets from a dependable source. On the part of the organization it is very good as they cannot get the actual valuation of the fan support that every single organization enjoys in the NBA league. ?Just like teams could evaluate players in the past, now they can also evaluate their fans?.
Through this method ticket prices can be directly monitored by the NBA and the team authorities. The ticket prices can be kept under control and no more can the fans be harassed. With the amount of brokers around the teams also fail to know whether they are selling the tickets to the correct fan or not. Are the brokers making extra money out of these tickets by charging more from the fans?
So to stop these ill practices the NBA association and Ticketmaster has come up with this brilliant idea of providing fans with a one stop ticket shop. This is going to start from the month of October and is expected to make history. The season tickets have to be dealt with very delicately because it?s not just about the games but it?s also about the 12 month membership.
