Courtside seats at an NBA game are undoubtedly the best tickets in the house, if not the best seats in all of sports. Being able to take in the action just a few feet away from some of the best athletes on the planet is the ultimate way to experience a live basketball game, which is why sitting courtside is a “bucket list” item for many sports fans.

Interested in purchasing courtside tickets for the Memphis Grizzlies? Here’s everything you need to know. 

How Much Do Courtside Tickets Cost?

Although the Grizzlies are an exciting up-and-coming team featuring talented young players like Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr., courtside tickets for the Grizzlies are surprisingly affordable compared to most NBA teams. The cost of courtside tickets can vary quite a bit depending on the quality of opponent and what day of the week the game falls on. Ticket costs also fluctuate based on how close the seats are to the court.

The most expensive seating section for the Grizzlies tends to be Courtside 1, which is located directly across from the team benches and the scorer’s table. For midweek matchups against non-elite teams, courtside tickets in this section cost anywhere from $1,050 to $1,200 per ticket. For more in-demand matchups like games against the Pelicans or the Celtics, tickets in Courtside 1 can go for upwards of $1,800 per seat. 

Courtside tickets start to come down a bit in price if you opt to sit in the second row or if you sit in one of the courtside sections that are located on the baseline, which are sections 2-5. Tickets in these sections can be had for as little as $383 per seat for certain matchups.

Where Can I Buy Courtside Tickets for the Grizzlies?

One way to purchase courtside seats for the Grizzlies is to go through the team’s ticketing department, which can be reached online via the team’s website or by phone at 901-888-HOOP. The team’s ticket marketplace also allows fans to purchase verified resale tickets from other individuals as well. Given how in-demand courtside tickets are, most of the offerings on the Grizzlies ticket marketplace are verified ticket resales.
