WHEN CAN I GET TICKETS?

We will post any additional information about ticketing opportunities on the website and email details to our Insider subscribers.   

 

WHAT IF TICKETS ARE SOLD OUT?

Even if tickets sell out online, fans have other ticket options. The safest, most secure place to purchase authentic tickets from other fans is on the Thunder TicketExchange operated by Ticketmaster. The Thunder TicketExchange is your only source for guaranteed legitimate tickets sold by other fans. For more information, see our Thunder TicketExchange FAQ. Tickets often exceed face value. The Thunder TicketExchange can be accessed via our website THUNDER.NBA.COM

 

There is also a game-day chance to get Playoff tickets in the hours preceding each home game through the Thunder Rewards Zone, presented by Buffalo Wild Wings on Northwest Expressway. Throughout the Playoffs, 25 pairs of fans will be able to enjoy the game for free, and 75 pairs of Love's Loud City tickets will be available to purchase. Fans may submit their names starting four hours before tipoff, with registration closing two hours prior to the game. The chance to win or purchase all tickets will be determined through a drawing, which occurs 90 minutes before tipoff each game day.

 

IF I AM A SEASON TICKET MEMBER, WHEN AND HOW DO I GET MY PLAYOFF TICKETS?

Unless a Thunder representative has contacted you about delivery, tickets are now available to print on your Thunder Online Account Manager for the first two games of the Finals. 

 

Season Ticket Members were provided an early opportunity to reserve playoff tickets. Please contact your Season Ticket Member Account Representative at 405.208.4666 for more information or with any questions.

 

IS THERE EXTRA SECURITY OR ANYTHING ELSE DIFFERENT ABOUT FINALS GAMES?

All fans entering Chesapeake Energy Arena for the Finals games will be wanded for security purposes. We encourage fans to arrive early to allow extra time to get to their seats. In addition, during the Finals, doors will open two hours prior to tipoff instead of the normal 90 minutes. 

 

HOW CAN I PURCHASE PLAYOFF GEAR?

Both Thunder Shop locations, in Chesapeake Energy Arena and at Leadership Square, will have playoff gear as it becomes available. Items will also be sold online at nbathundershop.com. The Thunder Shop at Chesapeake Energy Arena will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon-4 on Sundays through the Playoffs. NBA Finals hats and t-shirts are now available.
