FIBA Fever: How to Buy Tickets? Shuttles to the Philippine Arena? Live Streaming?

If you’re looking for a guide on how to make the most out of our country’s historic hosting of the 2023 FIBA World Cup, then you’ve come to the right place.

The anticipation and the energy is starting to build up as FIBA fever officially begins to sweep the Philippines. Luckily, for everyone, FIBA global partner and mobile services provider Smart Communications is stepping up their game and making sure that each Filipino basketball fan gets the chance to enjoy this historic sports event.

How and where to buy tickets?

To make it more convenient for fans to secure seats to the games, tickets are available at select Smart Stores located at SM and Robinsons Malls.

Single game tickets are also available via Ticketnet and SM Tickets for as low as PhP 499.

Is there a promo we can join to win tickets?

There is one actually. Fans can get the chance to win premium tickets to the games with every purchase of the limited-edition FIBA Basketball World Cup Load Cards featuring Gilas Artwork by Filipino basketball artist and advocate Mike Swift – the same guy who did the massive art tribute to Kobe and Gianna Bryant at the Tenement Court in Taguig.

You can try your luck here.

Will there be shuttles to the Philippine Arena for the opening?

Yes, in fact there will be 400 shuttle buses in total that will be deployed all over Metro Manila, and Clark, Pampanga to ferry fans to the Philippine Arena and back for the opening ceremony. Now that’s convenient!
