The Golden State Warriors are set to roll out a $100 monthly In the Building Pass that gets fans into Oracle Arena, but without a view of the court.
For a fee of $100 per month, fans can access a non-transferable mobile pass that gets them into Oracle Arena for every team home game. While passholders are eligible for promotional giveaways, the pass not include a seat within the arena’s bowl and does not offer a view of the court.
Instead, passholders will be permitted to access other areas around Oracle Arena, such as bars and restaurants. The pass will be offered beginning in November, running through the end of the regular season. More from ESPN.com:
The mobile pass does not include a seat, and with no access to the seating bowl, doesn’t even include a view of the court itself. The team says fans who purchase the pass will have access to the arena’s bars and restaurants and can watch on the televisions in the club areas. Fans do have a chance to receive one of the Warriors giveaways if they are one of the first 10,000 people into the arena.
Fans can purchase up to four “In The Building” passes, although each one must be connected to a name, and they are non-transferable. Warriors spokesperson Lisa Goodwin said the team plans to sell 200 passes each month, starting with November, and that the pass will automatically renew each month through April, as the offer is not being extended to the postseason.
There are currently 44,000 people on the Warriors season-ticket waiting list.
Demand for Warriors’ tickets has been high in recent years, given the club’s on-court success. The team is expected to extend its current sellout streak, the fourth-longest active sellout streak among NBA teams, to 300 games Tuesday.
