If you’re an NBA fan, this is the most exciting time of the year as the 2012 NBA playoffs tip off this weekend. Eight teams (16 in total) from both the Eastern and Western Conference will compete against each other for a chance to meet in the NBA Finals in June. Each round will be played in a best-of-seven series format. The last team standing will be crowned NBA champion, staking claim to the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
We’re excited that our clients the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz will both be participating in this year’s playoffs. The Nuggets, who are seeded sixth in the West, will face the Los Angeles Lakers. The Jazz, seeded eighth in the West, will face the San Antonio Spurs. (Click here to see the rest of the playoff matchups.)
Just as in the regular season, many fans will turn to our paperless ticketing system Flash Seats® for venue entry and to buy, sell, and transfer their playoff tickets. Fans will also have the added value of knowing they are buying from a safe and secure marketplace that is endorsed by their team. This is especially important during the playoffs with the high volume of counterfeit tickets that tend to circulate. All primary tickets for each home playoff game will be sold through the Veritix® platform.
We look forward to what we hope is an exciting few months of basketball for our clients!
