Priority Ticket Waitlist Goes Live This Thursday


Chris Hansen

We are excited to announce that we’re launching a Priority Ticket Waitlist for future Sonics tickets.

In addition to helping us understand and prioritize the demand for tickets, registering your interest will be a critical step in demonstrating to the NBA and basketball fans around the country the unbelievable passion that exists in the Emerald City to BRING BACK OUR SONICS!

The Priority Ticket Waitlist will go live here at on March 14 at 10 am SST (Sonics-Saving Time!). You will also be able to go to the list directly here. Requests will be taken in sequential order for each ticket type.

Before we sell any new tickets, we would like to highlight that we plan to do our very best to contact all 2007-2008 Sonics season ticket holders and provide them the opportunity to secure their same seat location for the team’s return. However, we’d greatly appreciate it if prior season ticket holders would still fill out the request as it will greatly help us in making sure we have your current contact data.

It’s also important that we reiterate that no inference should be drawn between our establishment of the Priority Ticket Waitlist and our efforts to close our acquisition of the Sacramento Kings. We are in the midst of working through the approval and relocation process with the NBA, and we would expect a determination to be made at the Board of Governors meeting in mid-April.

If our efforts prove successful, we anticipate a Sonics sales team member will contact you in May to discuss available seating options. However, a confirmation of your status on the Priority Ticket Waitlist should in no way be seen as a guarantee of tickets.

From the incredible outpouring of emotion from the 5,000 of you who showed up for our rally, to the relentless outreach to the City and County Councils and the legions sporting the Green and Gold in our city, we would never have reached this point without all of you! With this in mind, I’m reaching out to ask for your help once more. It’s the home stretch people and we really need your support on this to help carry us past the finish line!
