|Basketball fans can now purchase their tickets to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup|
Venue Passes and Finals Passes for the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain went on sale on Tuesday on www.fiba.com/spain2014/tickets.
The Venue Pass is the easiest way to enjoy all the action in any of the six cities that will host FIBA's flagship event this summer (30 August-14 September) - Bilbao, Gran Canaria, Granada and Sevilla in the Preliminary Round; Barcelona and Madrid in the Final Round.
Turkey and Ukraine will play in Bilbao, Lithuania and Slovenia compete in Gran Canaria, Greece and Croatia begin their quests to be world champions in Sevilla, whilst hosts Spain, EuroBasket 2013 champions and Serbia tip off their tournaments in Granada.
Fans interested in purchasing the Venue Pass simply have to choose the city they want to visit and can secure their seats for all the sessions held in that particular venue. This consists of 10 sessions (for a total of 15 games) for cities hosting the Preliminary Round, and a total of seven games in the Final Round (four Eighth-Finals, two Quarter-Finals and one Semi-Final) in either Barcelona or Madrid.
Purchasing the Venue Pass entitles customers to save 20 per cent on the official price for the sessions. Venue Passes can be purchased on the Spain 2014 official ticketing website from as low as €103,20 for 15 games.
Finals Passes, which grant combined access to the Final and the Third-Place Game, also went on sale on Tuesday and are available to customers who have purchased Venue Passes for any of the six host cities. The starting price for a Finals Pass is €115 for the two games.

In mid-October, a 'Follow Your Team - Final Round Pass' was made available and can be purchased until the end of February.
