Sales have spiked since Saturday, since news of their trade with the Boston Celtics to acquire the No. 1 pick in Thursday's draft. The Sixers have sold a franchise-record 14,000 season tickets for 2017-18 and expect to sell out all of their home games.
"Fortunately we're able to break the Sixers' all-time record for season-ticket memberships," Sixers chief sales and marketing officer Christopher Heck told CSNPhilly.com. "That is a testament to the strong fandom that we believe not only is this a true sports town, but it's a basketball town."
With management preaching patience, the Sixers have been quietly increasing their season-ticket sales. During the summer of 2013, they sold 3,400 season tickets. Last season, almost 10,000. And now, 14,000.
They're first in the league in new full-season ticket packages.
"To see what's going on right now is something we've experienced over the last, really, four years that started with the most loyal fans, with season-ticket holders," Heck said.
