One of the few disadvantages of the Clippers new rise to prominence is that tickets are a little tougher to come by. The Clippers have sold out every game this season, and currently have higher home attendance than the Lakers this season. (Configuration differences at Staples mean that the Lakers have a slightly smaller capacity than the Clippers, but somehow the Clippers have actually outdrawn their official capacity this season.)
Which makes it a little tougher to get great group deals for things like Clips Nation Night.
Even so, our good friends Sam Yarin (citizen besaje) and Maurice Baker at the Clippers have put a great package together for us for Clips Nation Night 2012. With the increased demand, we've had to plan a little further out, so we're looking at the Clippers-Warriors game on March 11. That's a Sunday night game with a 6:30 tip, which is perfect, because it let's everyone get there but doesn't keep people out too late. Well, it's perfect for me anyway.
Here are the details:
- Clips Nation Night 2012, Clippers vs. Warriors, Sunday, March 11 at 6:30pm.
- We can arrive early to watch Clippers pregame warmups
- Private Reception before the game with the usual drinks, raffle, meeting others, etc.
- Halftime fan tunnel for first 25 fans that buy tickets, and first 5 season ticket holders that rsvp.
- Prices are $120 for Lower Corner, $75 for 200 section, $40 for Upper Center, and $27 for Upper Corner. There are no fees on this tickets and they will be emailed.
If you went to the last Clips Nation Night last season against Toronto, you know that there were some mix ups with where they placed us for watching warmups and with the reception room before the game. It was still fun, but I have been assured that we will have no such issues this time around.

This is a great chance to meet the fellow Citizens of Clips Nation, to talk some basketball and see a game. Let's have a huge turnout this time. Remember to act fast on these tickets -- the Clippers are a hot ticket right now, so we're not the only ones that want to attend (for a change).
