Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – The Cleveland Cavaliers have sold out of season tickets less than eight hours after LeBron James announced his return.
Shortly before 12:30 p.m. ET, when James’ decision was revealed, the Cavaliers’ ticket phone lines were so busy that lines in the office were utilized for ticket sales.
The Cavaliers, who sell season tickets only over the phone, also upped the deposit to a flat $500 fee per seat from $200.
The team capped season-ticket sales at slightly more than 12,000 tickets Friday.
Ticket prices for season tickets stayed the same, although individual tickets are expected to be priced dynamically as they have been in the past.
