The rush can begin. The process of selling tickets for the NBA game between Charlotte and Milwaukee starts this Wednesday, the opening day of the NBA season.
For the 11th time since 1991, the NBA will land in Paris. Except that it will be an official season game, not just a pre-season preparation match. Places for this highly anticipated duel are in presale from Wednesday, October 23. Ticket prices are not yet communicated by the NBA. We are talking about a starting price around 70 to 80 euros but nothing is confirmed.
Only certainty: there will be no room for everyone. More than 200,000 people have registered to participate in the presale for less than 15,000 places available.
A complex purchasing method
The first mails arrived this Tuesday followed by an SMS with a code to connect to the presale which opens this Wednesday at 11 o'clock in the morning and not lunch as previously planned. Remember to look in your spam if no mail has ever reached you.
Please note that purchases will be limited to a maximum of four seats per person. And this to avoid resales and parallel markets.
Attention to save time before Wednesday 11 am, remember to create a customer account on the AccorHotels Arena website where you will have entered your contact information in advance. Once this creation done, it will be necessary to click on the link received by SMS and you will be placed in waiting list. This is where the longest starts, according to the organizers. The wait can last. Once arrived at the end of the queue, it will then enter the access code received by SMS and confirm the email address used to register for the presale "Verified fan".

You will have to be patient and pass this real e-fighter course for the chance to see Nicolas Batum and his Charlotte teammates. "At first I am very happy for France. I have played a few times in Paris but it will be a first for me with the NBA. It will be very special, said this weekend the captain of the team of France absent for the resumption of the season due to Achilles tendon pain. I am grateful for the city and my country to have two NBA teams competing. The NBA is very important in France. The French really like basketball. "
