Limited Tickets For August 22 USA-Australia Exhibition Game Available

Game Two of the USA Men's National Team versus Australia historic two-game series at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne on Saturday, August 24, 2019, has officially sold out, with limited tickets remaining for Game One on Thursday, August 22, 2019, and selling fast.

 

Since going on general sale in late August, over 90,000 tickets have been snapped up by fans in Australia and around the globe wanting to witness the must-see sporting event of 2019.

 

The highly anticipated games will be the first time the USA Basketball Men’s National Team has played in Australia since winning gold at the 2001 Goodwill Games in Brisbane, and, should both nations earn qualifying berths to 2019 FIBA World Cup, would form part of their preparations for the 2019 FIBA World Cup that is being held in China, Aug. 31 – Sept. 15.

 

Basketball Australia Acting CEO, Paul Maley said: “There has been a high demand for tickets to these games from the day they went on sale and the hype surrounding the Boomers continues to grow.

 

“We cannot wait to welcome USA Basketball to Melbourne in August and showcase to the world games between these two basketball powerhouses.”

 

The CEO of promoter TEG Geoff Jones said: “To sell over 90,000 in less than three months talks to the surging popularity of basketball across Asia and the remarkable nature of these two games. 

 

“The Boomers against USA Basketball will be an event experience unlike any hosted before on Australian shores. From the world-class talent on court, to the incredible atmosphere off it, fans lucky enough to secure tickets are in for something unforgettable.”

 

Peter Bingeman, the Visit Victoria Chief Executive, said that the sell-out crowd will boost the visitor economy and encouraged those without a ticket to embrace Front Row Melbourne as a means of enjoying the spectacle from the best seats in the house.

 

“This is an outstanding result. We knew that the matches between the Australian Boomers and the USA Basketball men’s team would be popular, but to have game two sold out so early is exciting to say the least,” Bingeman said.

 

“If you don’t already have a ticket to these incredible basketball games at Marvel Stadium, you can give yourself a chance to win tickets by registering at Front Row Melbourne, which has 12 epic prizes, including these games, ensuring platinum access to the best major events in Melbourne.”

 

Remaining tickets for Australian Boomers v USA Basketball on Thursday 22 August at Marvel Stadium are available from Ticketmaster.com.au
