Pay the Pick: Jazz to Sell Limited Number of Season Tickets Based on Lottery Slot
SALT LAKE CITY (May 7, 2014) – The Utah Jazz are offering 500 season ticket packages at a “Pay the Pick” price ranging from a $1-7 per game, based on the results of the NBA Draft Lottery, beginning at 8:30 a.m. today.
Under the “Pay the Pick” promotion, season tickets could be priced as low as $44 for an upper bowl seat, with the cost per game equaling the draft pick the team receives in the lottery. For example, if the Jazz is the No. 1 pick, the price would be $1 per game, or $44 for the season (41 regular season games and three preseason games). The Jazz currently holds the slot for the No. 4 pick. If the Jazz maintains that position, the $4 per game cost would amount to $176 for the season.
Fans can make their Jazz “Pay the Pick” season ticket purchase now by calling (801) 355-DUNK (3865). There is a limit of four seats per household. More details are available at www.utahjazz.com/paythepick.
“We expect overwhelming interest in this unique season ticket promotion that matches the cost with Utah’s draft pick number,” said Randy Rigby, president of the Utah Jazz. “All of us hope the ping pong balls will bounce in our favor for the benefit of our loyal fans and the development of our team.”
The NBA will conduct its Draft Lottery on May 20 in New York City. The odds for the Jazz are 10.4 percent for acquiring the No. 1 pick, 11.2 percent for No. 2, 12.1 percent for No. 3, 9.9 percent for No. 4, 37.3 percent for No. 5, 17.7 percent for No. 6 and 1.4 percent for No. 7.
Although the “Pay the Pick” promotion is limited on first-come, first-served basis, additional 2014-15 season tickets are available for as low as $10.25 per game in the upper bowl.
