If you’ve watched any high-profile NBA game on television over the past decade, you’ll undoubtedly have noticed some of the most recognizable people in American pop culture taking in the game from the courtside.

How much do Lakers courtside tickets Cost?

The cost of courtside Lakers tickets varies considerably based on the game’s demand, the opponent’s quality, the day of the week, home vs. away venues, and whether you’re looking at the regular season or the playoffs.

The Lakers have a relatively small amount of courtside seating, as they have just two rows of courtside seats that wrap around the court. Due to the small amount of available courtside seats, these tickets tend to go for quite a bit of money.

The cheapest at-home courtside Lakers tickets start around $5,500.00, and these tickets are usually for games against lower-ranking teams or games that take place on Tuesday or Wednesday nights. 

Higher-profile matchups, where the Lakers face off against stiff competition like the Golden State Warriors or Memphis Grizzlies, tend to go for about $9,000.00 or $10,000.00 per ticket but can go all the way up to $42,000.00 per ticket for games that are can’t-miss or in very high demand. 

If you’re looking to see the Lakers courtside for cheaper – you may want to consider checking out an away game. For example, this season, the Los Angeles Lakers at Oklahoma City Thunder courtside tickets can be found for as low as $700.00. 

Where can I buy courtside tickets for the Lakers?

One way to purchase courtside seats for the Lakers is to buy them in person at the Arena Box Office.  In addition to purchasing tickets in person, the Lakers also have a Ticket Exchange program through Ticketmaster, which offers verified resale tickets sold by other Lakers ticket holders. Given how popular courtside tickets are, most of the offerings on the Lakers ticket marketplaces are verified ticket resales.

What are some of the perks of courtside seats?

There are quite a few perks that go hand-in-hand with courtside tickets, which fall into three main categories: amenities, access, and visibility.


Since courtside seats are classified as a premium fan experience, they usually come bundled with added amenities designed to provide the best fan experience possible. Some common amenities included with courtside tickets include complimentary food and beverage, padded chairs, parking passes and access to concierge services.


NBA courtside seats provide unparalleled access to a basketball game as you are just feet away from the best players in the world. You’ll be able to hear the players communicate on the court and eavesdrop on team huddles, all while having the best view in the house. 


If you sit courtside, you’re almost guaranteed to be featured on the television broadcast at some point.
