Warriors to Use Personal Seat Licenses at New Arena


The Golden State Warriors are bringing the personal seat license to the NBA, and the fans willing to purchase them will be asked for a 30-year commitment. Officials with the defending NBA champs acknowledged Wednesday that in order to get season tickets at the team’s new privately financed $1 billion Chase Center, which opens in 2019, fans will have to pay a fee for the right to buy those tickets.

While pricing has not been revealed, a team official confirmed to ESPN that the number of seats dedicated for season-ticket holders will decrease from the 14,500 at the current Oracle Arena to roughly 12,000 at Chase Center. Half of the tickets will come with a per-seat cost of $15,000 or less. The other half would cost more than that. No other team in the NBA charges for the right to buy a season ticket. A majority of NFL teams use licenses.
