Warriors NBA Finals ticket prices at Chase Center could break records

Resale ticket prices for the NBA Finals beginning Thursday at Chase Center were averaging $3,526 per seat, higher than any of the team’s five previous appearances in the Finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland, according to information supplied by Ticket IQ, a secondary marketplace for tickets.

Ticket prices at Chase Center averaged nearly $1,000 per ticket more than the prices in Boston, where Games 3 and 4 will be played. The Chase Center resale average was second only to tickets for games played in Toronto between the Warriors and Raptors in the 2019 Finals. Those prices averaged $4,364 per seat while the games in Oakland averaged $3,445 per seat.

Jesse Lawrence, founder and president of Ticket IQ, said if the Finals return from Boston for Game 5 in San Francisco, prices will go higher than for Game 1. If it goes all the way to Game 7, also in San Francisco, they could approach the record set by the Raptors, at home in Toronto in 2019.

“This is the first playoff run at Chase Center, so that is a factor,” said Lawrence. “The first time in a new venue always brings a premium.”
