Warriors warn of unverified third-party ticket sales fraud this coming season


Chase Center in San Francisco on May 26, 2022: The Golden State Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks 120-110 to advance to the NBA Finals.

The Golden State Warriors don’t want Dub Nation burned, or any NBA basketball fans for that matter. On Wednesday, the Warriors issued a warning about reselling tickets on third-party websites for the upcoming season.

This is basically a fraud alert about the potential dangers of purchasing tickets from unverified third-party sites.

The team’s organization said it had problems with fans buying fraudulent tickets last season and therefore not being admitted to games at Chase Center in San Francisco. Considering their performances last season, winning the championship for the fourth time in eight years, you can imagine how disappointing that must have been for those who were duped.

As many as 300 fans were denied access to regular season games, the organization said. Capitalizing on the team’s success, fraudsters were able to sell even more tickets during the Warriors 2022 playoffs. 200 unverified tickets were declined for those games.

“Fans wishing to attend Warriors games during the 2022-23 season are encouraged to purchase tickets directly from the team by visiting warriors.com, or by calling 1-888-GSW-HOOP,” the press release read.

Apart from this notice, there was no indication of additional measures planned to prevent this type of ticket fraud.
