Following outstanding demand from fans in Spain and around the world in the first two months of sale, FIBA is pleased to announce that an additional allocation of Venue Passes and Finals Passes for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup will be released for public sale on Tuesday 15 April at 12:00 local time (GMT+2) on www.fiba.com/spain2014/tickets.
All available Finals Passes were bought in a matter of hours and more than 80 percent of the passes available for Bilbao, Granada and Madrid were sold out in just a few days. Therefore, this new allocation will provide fans with what might be their last chance to be part of the FIBA Basketball World Cup in these cities this summer (30 August-14 September). Gran Canaria and Sevilla are also looking to set excellent standards in terms of travelling fans and locals alike.
Basketball fans should not miss out on the opportunity of spending a few days in Barcelona to enjoy Final Phase action in Palau Sant Jordi which could feature reigning world champions USA and top-seeded side Lithuania. Meanwhile, tournament hosts Spain and Argentina, who are ranked third in the FIBA Ranking Men, would give fans at Madrid's Palacio de los Deportes some great games to look forward to if they make it past the Group Phase.
Venue Passes are the easiest way to enjoy all the games taking place in any of the six cities hosting the FIBA Basketball World Cup - Bilbao, Gran Canaria, Granada and Sevilla for the Group Phase; Barcelona and Madrid for the Final Phase. What's best, they are also the cheapest way, since fans will be able to save 20 percent on the official price for the individual sessions, with passes priced as low as €103,20 for 15 Group Phase games.
Finals Passes grant combined access to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup Final (Sunday 14 September) and the Third-Place Game (Saturday 13 September) in Madrid. They are available only to fans that have purchased a Venue Pass for any of the six host cities.
If any of these passes are left over, they will be added to the limited supply of the two remaining ticket types yet to be unveiled: the Day Passes that go on sale on 5 May and the Session Tickets being made available on 1 July.
