Atlanta Dream Sells Out After Complaints Of Location Restrictions

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

To ‘prevent brokers from acquiring large quantities of tickets,’ only Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, and North Carolina fans were able to purchase season tickets

With the viewership for Women’s basketball at an all-time high, the Atlanta Dream announced location restrictions on ticket sales on April 21, according to Fox 5 Atlanta, which caused fans to become angry with the WNBA team.

The team stated on their social media profile that they were selling tickets in this way due to “unprecedented demand” before tickets were available. Only fans in the surrounding area were able to purchase presale tickets. Residents of Georgia, of course, as well as people living in Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina, and North Carolina, will have a chance to buy tickets to “prevent brokers from acquiring large quantities of tickets.”

Various complaints from social media users and fans of the WNBA team were seen before the presale started. Yet, the demand was so great that the Dream became the second WNBA team in league history after the Las Vegas Aces became the first to sell out the season ticket allotment. Their largest single day of ticket sales took place on April 21, when they sold out five games for the Gateway Center Arena.

The Atlanta Dream will play their first regular season game on May 15 in California against the Los Angeles Sparks. The first season home game will be on May 21 against the Dallas Wings.
