Kobe Bryant Giving Away Two Courtside Tickets for Final Game

by March 16, 2016

Buying a ticket on the hardwood—hell, anywhere in the Staples Center—for Kobe Bryant’s final game next month will be nearly impossible for most people.

Two lucky fans, however, will be sitting courtside for as little as ten bucks.

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant’s charity is making it happen through a simple donation.

Proceeds will benefit The Kobe & Vanessa Bryant Family Foundation, After-School All-Stars of Los Angeles, and the Positive Coaching Alliance.

Per the LA Daily News:

Several Lakers fans secured their seats well before Bryant announced his retirement. Prices also steadily increased once Bryant made his retirement official. But another alternative has emerged to see the Lakers’ season finale against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center on April 13.


Bryant partnered with Omaze to give away two front-row tickets at center court that requires fans to make a donation as little as $10 through the charitable fundraising platform. Those fans will also have their travel and lodging paid as well as enough proximity to high-five Bryant and his teammates.


“After 20 years as a Laker, April 13 will be a memorable night for me, the team and the fans,” Bryant said in the video. “We are creating an epic experience to benefit three great organizations who bring after school programs and positive coaching to kids in LA.”
