Season ticket holder presale for opening night allows you to buy tickets in groups of 25 or more starting at 85 per ticket.  So all in all, around 100ish isn't bad.  If you can grab them for that now, I wouldn't hesitate.  They won't get any easier from this point most likely.

I'm going to be there for the opener and do have a nice plan for the night. I'm trying to wait it out and see if I can get a few tickets from the team. Roaring do you have an opportunity to buy a block? If so I definitely think there are 24 of us who would attended with you.

I bought some when they were $59. Sounds like they're up to $80ish now. I can inquire about buying another block but I'm not gonna chase people down for money, so if there are 25 interested then I would do that for you guys. But it sounds like the face value is going to be comparable to what you can get on the secondary market right now. But I'm open to helping if I can.

Got 3 myself. Overpaid too. $140 for sec 103. Couldn't risk them getting snatched up. Might stay over and catch the Panthers game the night after, but first Hornet game since they left is much more epic IMO.

Since I am both wide and long was trying to get any aisle seat for season opener. I didn't mind paying a premium for it either, but the people at Stub Hub said there was only one aisle seat available and it was being sold for $890.

I said "Sh1t for $890 I better be sitting on MJs lap". She confirmed that it was not MJs lap so I passed.

We are on upper section (I will look at actual section when we get them) near the end of the row but nit the aisle seat and around mid court area. I am going to try and bribe the aisle seat people with a little cash when we get there.

I am lucky I have a wife who loves sports because she may be more excited than I am.

Is that $140 apiece?

Anyone know how the payment plan works if I buy the season tickets now? 

 

I was told before, the payment plan would be the cost of each ticket for 43 games, paid over 8 months with no interest.  Is that how it works?  If so, I may go ahead and do it.  I just don't think the section I'd be buying them in would get much interest on the resale market, lol.

Yes, $140 for each ticket. I'm sure that is insane. I pay about $140 on Stubhub to site at a regular Panthers game, around the middle of the upper deck, 30 yard line. So, I figure same price for such a big game in Hornets history was worth it.

I'm not sure if it's 8 or 10 months, but yes that's how it works. They just hit my credit card every month for the amount did.

Yes..it is 8 months.  Do it.  The resale market is pretty good this year/for the future wherever you're at depending on the opponent.
