CLEVELAND, Ohio — Getting your hands on Cleveland Cavaliers tickets might involve a much different process this season.
With unprecedented high ticket demand along with limited ticket availability, the team has announced the launch of a new monthly lottery process to provide seats to as many fans as possible.
According to a release from the team, the lottery will begin Sept. 26. It’s designed to help preserve and protect single game ticket inventory being available for as many individual fans as possible for the Cavs 41-home game schedule.
According to the release, this new approach is also meant to help reduce the number of outside brokers and individuals looking to buy individual tickets in bulk and months in advance with the intent of reselling them.
“The excitement for the upcoming Cavs season is off the charts and we can’t wait to get started,” said Cavaliers CEO Len Komoroski in the release. “It’s a fact that the high demand for tickets far exceeds the supply. We were committed to find a way to strategically help manage a ticket buying process that would protect the integrity of the purchase for our true fans, and we believe a timed monthly lottery will help ensure that is the case.”
