Today , in the “ House of Basektball” a press conference about the tickets for the Olympic Qualification Tournament scheduled for 4-9 July, 2016 in “ Belgrade Arena” was held . At the conference the journalists were addressed by the President of KSS , Mr. Dragan Djilas, Vice-president for Marketing and Finance and the director of the Olympic Qualification Tournament board, Mr. Andrija Kleut and Marko Simonovic, the member of the Serbian national team.
The ticket session will be available on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May, 2016 only at the ticket office of Belgrade Arena, and form May 10th the purchase of the tickets will be available online and in the Eventim offices , as well as through internet page https://www.eventim.rs . The sale of the singe tickets starts on May 20th also online and with Eventim offices.
Mr . Dragan Djilas , the President of KSS, was the first who addressed the journalist regarding this issue:
– We want to enable everyone who is interested in this tournament to buy the tickets selected into several categories. When we were granted the organization of the Olympic Qualification Tournament , our idea was to enable each Serbian citizen to see our national team at the cost of 400 dinars . The weekend games’ tickets will be session tickets , and in the second part of May single tickets will be released. There are about 5,700 tickets that cost RSD 400. The next category is 600 and so on until the most expensive tickets that cost over 2000 dinars. I think that such prices enable everyone to come, no matter to the economic situation of our citizens. This is the unique opportunity for our people to watch our national team . I really think that this will be the biggest competition in Serbia that is held in the last ten years- said Mr. Djilas.
Mr. Andrija Kleut, the Director of the Qualification Tournament Organizational Board, introduced us with organizational details.
– During the previous last two months, from the moment it has been announced that we will host the tournament, we have done a lot of things in cooperation with FIBA. We have done everything to provide the technical and sport requirements for such serious event that is to be played in Belgrade. The first phase is the ticket sale , and the tickets are available to everyone, since the session tickets for all games costs 2000 dinars. This is significantly lower price compared to the tournaments in Italy and Philippine. We hope that the Belgrade Arena will be full, as well as that the game with Puerto Rico will show our people’s love for basketball.
Marko Simonovic, the member of the Serbian National Team, has invited fans to support our national team on its way to obtain Olympic visas.
– On behalf of my team mates I can say that we posses great desire and we are highly motivated . We want to make excellent score and to qualify for the Olympic games in Rio. The additional reason is that the tournament is played in Belgrade , so I hope that our fans will come in large number. Come to Belgrade Arena and support Serbia ! – said Simonovic.
