The East Asia Super League (EASL) and Japan Professional Basketball League (B.League) have revealed ticketing details for the upcoming EASL Champions Week. 

The league’s eight-qualified champions and runner-up teams from EASL partner leagues, which include B.League, Korea KBL, Philippine PBA, Chinese Taipei P.League+ and the EASL-seeded Bay Area Dragons, will compete for the EASL crown in Utsunomiya and Okinawa, Japan from March 1-5 this year.

The eventual winner will be rewarded with $250,000 (£202,000/€229,000), while the runner-up and third place teams will receive $100,000 and $50,000.

A total of 10 games will be played during EASL Champions League, with the reigning Japan B.League champions Utsunomiya Brex hosting the first six games of the group stage at Nikkan Arena Tochigi.

The Ryuku Golden Kings will host the remaining four games; two games in the group stage and the Championship and third-place matches on March 5 at Okinawa Arena, which is also a 2023 FIBA World Cup venue.

Tickets for EASL Champions Week will be sold as a day-pass for each day, meaning fans are able to watch two games on the same day with the same seat.

The first window for ticket sales opens on February 7 and will run until mid-afternoon on February 8 for Club-Rex Diamond members and season ticket holders. The second window will open on February 8 in the evening and run until 15:00 on February 9 – this sales period is reserved for Club-Rex Platinum members.

The third window will open February 9 at 20:00 and will run until February 10 at 15:00 for Club-Rex Navy members, before the general sale begins on February 12.
