Since LeBron James and Kevin Love have joined the Cleveland Cavaliers, the demand for tickets are at a record high. So much so, that the Cavaliers initiated a new monthly lottery system for single-game tickets Friday.
The lottery process is designed to cut the number of outside brokers who buy large blocks of tickets months in advance with the sole intent of reselling them and making a huge profit.
So how can fans get tickets for the upcoming games? Beginning Sept. 26, fans can register at cavs.com. At that time they will have the opportunity of registering for tickets for every month of the season. Registration is limited to one account per household and email.
The lottery winners will be notified via email daily during the first full week each month at 9 a.m. The notification will tell how they can purchase tickets for one game during the month. For example, winners of January lottery can buy tickets for a February game. The lottery winners can purchase up to six tickets for one game but are not guaranteed a specific game.
A password will be provided to winners and they must buy tickets that day between noon and 11:59 p.m. If fans aren’t able to buy the tickets in that allotted time period then a new winner will be selected.
Fans who win the lottery tickets and purchase them won’t be eligible again for 60 days. Fans who win the lottery but aren’t able to purchase them will be eligible for the next months drawing.
Cavs Flash Seats will be another way you can purchase tickets. These tickets have already been purchased and can be brought and sold starting Sept. 26. Tickets for preseason games at the Quicken Loans Arena went on sale today at all Discount Drug Mart locations.
