Cleveland Cavaliers fans now have the chance to attend as many home games as they want for one monthly price.
In an attempt to boost attendance this season, the team introduced a MoviePass-type subscription model. The ticket isn’t a season pass, as fans can pay on a month-by-month basis. All fans have to do is reserve their seat at least 24 hours before the game begins. If the season isn’t going as well as fans had hoped, they can cancel the subscription, however, unless they cancel five days prior to the start of a new month, the subscription will renew.
Eric Clouse, the Cavaliers’ senior vice president of sales and service, noted in a statement to Cleveland.com that the seat location will vary from game to game.
“The tickets are non-transferable and cannot be shared or resold, but there is a core demographic this appeals to and we’ve seen great success so far,” Clouse said.
Fans can grab the Cavs Monthly Pass for $89 to sit in the lower bowl or $49 a month to sit in the upper bowl. Since there are 12 games during the upcoming season, with 10 regular season matches, each game will cost about $4. While this subscription is new for the Cavs, it’s not a new concept; Washington, D.C. currently offers a subscription service called an INWEGO membership which allows fans to purchase up to five sporting events- like the Wizards or Capitals – each month for one price.
Head over to the team’s site for more information about the subscription service.
The Cavs are set to play a preseason game against the Pistons this Friday, October 11, followed by games against the Celtics next week. From there, they will face-off Orlando Magic, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Chicago Bulls through the end of October.
