Season Ticket Priority Wait List Reaches Over 1,000 Members
With a capacity crowd of 19,596 at Oracle Arena tonight to witness a rematch of last season’s Western Conference Semifinals between the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs, the Warriors have now sold out 50 consecutive homes games, the team’s longest sellout streak in 17 years. Warriors’ legend Nate Thurmond, who was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA history in 1996, celebrated the streak by hosting a dinner with a pair of lucky season ticket holders prior to the game in the VIP Lounge at Oracle Arena. The current sellout streak, which started on December 18, 2012 last season vs. New Orleans, represents the longest such streak for the team since Oracle Arena’s capacity was expanded from 15,025 to 19,596 prior to the 1997-98 season.
The Warriors, who have sold a franchise record 14,500 season tickets this season, capped season ticket sales six weeks ago and started a Season Ticket Priority Wait list, which surpassed 1,000 members earlier this week.
Last season, the Warriors registered the second highest single-game attendance average in franchise history (19,374) and averaged over 18,000 per game for the eighth consecutive season. Overall, the Warriors ranked fifth in the NBA in average attendance last season.
