How Much Are Los Angeles Lakers Season Tickets?
Although the Los Angeles Lakers had a bit of trouble last season, with an all-star roster behind LeBron James and being situated in beautiful Los Angeles, interest in Lakers games continues to grow and flourish. And, if the Lakers roster can remain healthy, we truly believe they will be a force to reckon with and will have a good shot at making it to the NBA Finals in the upcoming season.
But if you’re interested in purchasing season tickets to the Los Angeles Lakers home games, you may be wondering, just how much are Los Angeles Lakers season tickets?
Below, we are going to review the rough costs you should expect to pay for season tickets to watch the Los Angeles Lakers play at Crypto.com Arena.
These costs are “all-in”, meaning that you shouldn’t expect to pay any more or any less for access to the Lakers’ home games.
Where do the Los Angeles Lakers Play?
The Los Angeles Lakers currently play at Crypto.com Arena, which is located in Downtown Los Angeles. Formerly known as Staples Center, the naming rights were acquired by Crypto.com in December 2021.
One of the most hallowed and revered arenas in the NBA, Crypto.com Arena is also the home arena to the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks, the AFL’s Los Angeles Avengers, and the NBA G League’s South Bay Lakers. In addition, fellow NBA team, the Los Angeles Clippers, share usage of the arena for their home games.
For basketball games specifically, the arena is capable of holding up to 19,067 individuals within its 950,000 square feet. And, standing at 150 feet tall, Crypto.com Arena typically jaunts out from within the surrounding area, though there are a number of much taller buildings and skyscrapers beside it.
At a total cost of $375 million ($610 million in 2021 dollars) to build and construct, Crypto.com Arena was one of the most expensive basketball arenas and continues to be one of the most revered and admired halls in all of basketball.
What to Wear to a Lakers Game
While we’ve previously discussed the different clothes to wear to a baseball game, basketball games, being indoors, tend to be a bit easier to dress for. Typically, we like to wear either jeans or athletic pants to the stadium, either of which are comfortable and can keep us a bit warmer when the arena is colder.
However, to really showcase your fandom and support of the Lakers, be sure to wear a top that is either a mix of purple, gold, or black. As those are the classic Lakers colors, wearing a top portraying either one of those colors will help you to blend in better with the crowd and the other Lakers fans.
And while a Lakers jersey is always a great option to wear to a Lakers game, we understand that authentic jerseys can be prohibitively expensive. As such, we always recommend shopping around for replica jerseys or team memorabilia shirts.
One great, and rather unique, option is this Bryant Forever Farewell Tribute Retro Baseball Jersey. Designed in the same style as a baseball jersey, it pays homage to the Lakers great and does so in a respectful and rather sophisticated manner.
Alternatively, you could always just go for a simple Lakers t-shirt. We really like this one by Adidas, featuring an all-gold background and the classic Lakers logo on the front, it will easily showcase your fandom and support for the team.
Similarly, this Ultra Game NBA Women’s Soft Mesh Jersey T-Shirt has been in fashion for the past couple of years now. An all-black background with the Lakers logo on the front, the shirt features the Lakers classic purple and gold colors on the ends of the arms, closer to the shoulder, for a bit more flair.
Again though, it is not necessary, though recommended, to go to the game with Lakers colors. Similarly, it is not necessary to wear an authentic jersey to the game, so don’t think that you have to shell out hundreds of dollars for one.

How to Get Season Tickets to the Los Angeles Lakers?
Although the Lakers may have had a disappointing season last year, season tickets are currently in high demand and are sold out. Remember, these are one of the most sought after season tickets, so the available season tickets typically sell out almost immediately.
However, fear not, in an effort to accommodate interested fans, the Lakers have initiated a wait list to provide interested fans with an opportunity to purchase season tickets on a first-come, first-served basis.
To enter the Lakers wait list, simply head over here and complete the required form to begin the process. And, in addition to the form, be sure to read the fine print. You will find that not only must you be 18 years or older and agree to the terms and conditions, but that you must also be a legal resident of the state of California.
In addition, to filter out any bad actors, there is a one-time $100 deposit required to be entered into the wait list. If you are unable to purchase season tickets, or simply wish to cancel your request, the $100 deposit is refundable.
Should you be chosen and provided the opportunity to purchase season tickets for the Los Angeles Lakers, you will be emailed the opportunity, so be sure to keep a lookout in your email’s inbox.
Los Angeles Lakers Season Ticket Prices
Again, due to the increased popularity of the Los Angeles Lakers, the price for season tickets to their home games has increased rather substantially. However, season ticket prices vary based on both demand and seating choice, so the prices seen below can change.
In addition, the Los Angeles Lakers front office offers flexible payment options, including the ability to pay over time, with a fixed monthly payment. This makes the purchasing of the season tickets a bit more manageable.
Lastly, with many of the courtside and 100-level season tickets being snapped up by many of LA’s rich and famous, you’re more likely to be offered season tickets to the 200-300 seating range. If you would like lower level seats, be sure to indicate so to your sales rep, though you may have to wait longer to be offered available tickets.
300 Level Season Ticket Prices
Currently, the season ticket prices for a 300 level seat ranges in price from $1,800-$3,800 per ticket. Seated above the court and the crowd, you will have a birds-eye view of the court and the arena.
200 Level Season Ticket Prices
Directly below the 300 level seats, the 200 level seats offer slightly better views of the court and are closer to the action. Prices range from $4,000-$7,500 per seat for these seats.
100 Level Season Ticket Prices
Some of the best seats in the house, 100 level seats can get pretty pricey. Seats at the 100 level can start at $20,000 and can go higher than $60,000 per seat. The price is all dependent on how close to the court the seat is and how high the demand for those seats are.
Courtside season ticket seats to the Lakers, where you will be able to mix-and-mingle with the likes of Jack Nicholson, Justin Bieber, Denzel Washington, Snoop Dogg, and others will begin at over $100,000 per ticket. However, as there are only a limited number of courtside seats, expect the prices to rise quickly and can easily exceed $150,000-$200,000 per ticket.
