Tickets are still available on the secondary market for Dwyane Wade’s Miami homecoming game between the Heat and the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, which also happens to be the team’s last home game before the All-Star Break.
But don’t expect them to be cheap.
As of noon Friday, the cheapest tickets inside the arena on the secondary market were going for about $115 each on StubHub and VividSeats. That will get you a spot in the balcony level.
If you want to sit at the lower level, be ready to pay anywhere from $225 to $500 a ticket. If you have money to burn and want to sit courtside behind the Heat bench, there are four tickets available on StubHub for Thursday’s game. Two are valued at $4,995 each. The other two are $8,000 each.
A small supply of standing room only tickets are also still available for about $100.
But don’t fret. The price surge hasn’t impacted the rest of the season just yet.
If you can wait a couple weeks before watching Wade play for Miami live at home, prices are still relatively inexpensive for the Heat’s five-game homestand that starts with a game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Feb. 24.
Tickets for all of those games — the other four being Feb. 27 against the 76ers, March 1 against the Lakers, March 3 against the Pistons and March 5 against the Suns — can be found for as little as $35 on the secondary market for balcony seats. Some lower-level tickets are available for less than $100, too, if you want to be closer to the action. Prices are likely to rise quickly, though.
For those who will watch the action from home, all Heat games are televised locally on Fox Sports Sun.
