Monthly Ticket Lottery Opens
With demand for tickets at an unprecedented level and ticket availability limited, the Cavaliers have initiated an online lottery that will give fans the opportunity to be randomly selected to purchase tickets to attend home games this season. Registration for the month-by-month lottery begins THIS Friday, September 26th and will remain open through the end of the 2014-15 regular season. Fans can register for the lottery at cavs.com/lottery.
The first lottery winner selection will take place October 6th – 10th to purchase tickets to a November game, which will also include the October 30th season opener vs. the New York Knicks.
Fans will have the option to register for the lottery for EVERY month of the season, OR for SELECT months of the season. Fans can only register ONCE and are limited to one (1) account per household and email. Once fans register, they will not be locked into their selection and can submit updated registrations at ANY TIME prior to each month’s lottery.
During the first full week of each month at approximately 9:00 a.m. each day, randomly selected lottery winners will be notified via email that they can purchase up to six (6) tickets for one (1) game in the upcoming month. (For example, winners of the November lottery can purchase tickets to December games, and so on.) Fans are not guaranteed a specific game date in that month as availability to purchase is first come, first served. The winners will be provided a unique password and link to purchase tickets that same day between 12:00 p.m. – 11:59 p.m. and must purchase their tickets in an allotted 12-hour time frame or they forfeit their opportunity for tickets. If a fan wins and elects to purchase tickets, they will be eligible to win again in 60 days. If they elect not to purchase for a game that month, they will be eligible for the next month’s lottery.
The team is taking this new and unique monthly lottery approach in an effort to reduce the number of outside brokers and individuals looking to purchase single game tickets in bulk and months in advance with the sole intent of reselling them. There will be over 50,000 tickets available to fans through the lottery for the entire 41-game regular season. For complete details on the Cavs monthly single game lottery process, fans can visit cavs.com/lottery.
The Flash Seats marketplace will also open this Friday, September 26th at 10:00 a.m. and will feature single game ticket inventory made available by Cavs Wine & Gold United members who hold season tickets. For fans looking to purchase in advance, outside of the monthly lottery process, and guarantee they will have the tickets they want for any and all games during the 2014-15 season, the Flash Seats marketplace is the place to go. Flash Seats is the primary method of ticketing for the Cavaliers and is the only official team-sanctioned secondary marketplace where fans have the ability to buy, transfer and resell their game seats in a safe, secure and 100% guaranteed digital marketplace.
