A BANNER turnout showed up for Game Four of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals on Sunday night, with tickets almost sold out and hundreds of people still lining up hoping to get the last few tickets available just moments before tip-off.
Tickets for the bench VIP, courtside, patron, and lower box seats, with price rainging from P3,500 to P500, were sold out while only a few upper box and general admission seats priced between P240 and P70 were still available an hour before the game.
Despite most of the sections already sold out, there were still long lines at the ticket booths of the Big Dome, with fans eager to witness TNT trying to open a 3-1 lead over rival San Miguel in the best-of-seven series.
The final figures showed a total of 13,578 paying fans watched Game Four - the largest for a league game this conference and the biggest for a match not featuring crowd favorite Ginebra since Game 7 of the 2016 Philippine Cup Finals between San Miguel and Alaska, according to chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III.
Tickets for the bench VIP to lower box sections were also sold out in Game Three last Friday, but the upper box and general admission sections were mostly empty perhaps due to the rainy conditions.
The long weekend had the crowd swelling at the Big Dome for Game 4.
