Sports promoter TEG has revealed that more than 55,000 Australian fans have registered on the wait list for tickets to the Boomers v USA Basketball Men’s National Team games within the first 24 hours after the announcement.

The games will be played at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, on Thursday 22 August and Saturday 24 August 2019 as part of both nations’ planned preparations for the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, starting 31 August.

As the event promoter TEG yesterday opened a waitlist for general tickets and commenced sales of a limited number of corporate hospitality packages.

Tickets will go on sale in July. Fans can register their interest and receive news updates on the Boomers v USA games. To join the waitlist OR purchase corporate hospitality packages go to www.teglive.com.au

TEG CEO Geoff Jones said the ticket on sale was subject to a final venue configuration and seating map as Etihad Stadium is hosting basketball for the first time.

“Our mission is to provide affordable tickets that are accessible to the real fans,” said Jones. “The benefit of hosting these games in a stadium is that we can offer a wide range of categories and prices to suit every type of fan. 

“A court-side seat will carry a premium, but there will be many tickets at very affordable prices that will start from around $69.” 

Work on the final venue configuration will include a technical and logistical inspection tour of an NCAA basketball event in the USA, where the Final Four tournament is staged in major event stadium each year.

The huge demand for registrations on the wait list and the level of corporate hospitality sales in the first 24 hours have reaffirmed forecasts that the games will be sold-out events.

“This historic two-game series will showcase many of the world’s best players and will leave an enduring legacy for basketball in Australia,” said Jones.

“We knew there would be massive interest and the wait list numbers reflect the huge demand. It is exciting to imagine the atmosphere at Etihad Stadium with over 100,000 fans for the two games.”
