MANILA, Philippines—SM Tickets will open ticket selling for game three of the UAAP men’s basketball finals between La Salle and the University of Santo Tomas scheduled on Saturday only on the day itself.
The ticketing network of Mall of Asia Arena announced on its Facebook account Tuesday that fans may buy tickets just half an hour before the 3:30 p.m. rubber match.
“1 ticket per physically present person. Those in line will be directed straight to the venue entrance. Customer will not be allowed to leave the line after purchase,” SM Tickets also said.
This tightened process came after a surplus of problems involving scalpers arose during the ticket selling for game two of the finals last week at Smart Araneta Coliseum.
SM Tickets also disclosed that only a total of 1,800 Standing Room Only tickets will go on sale from the lower box, upper box, and general admission sections.
“Best available tickets at the time of purchase,” the Facebook post said.
There will be no selling in SM Tickets branches or through their website, and only at the Marina Way ticket booth at MOA Arena.
