Just last week I realized that a bunch of NBA and NHL teams gave away free tickets to preseason games in late September. It sure would have been nice to post links to those offers back then, but since I still haven't completed my time machine, I was content with marking my calendar for next year's offers and calling it a day.
Then I did a little digging and realized that two pro NBA teams and one NHL team are still giving away free tickets! Each offer requires you to print out the e-mail they send you and bring it with you in order to pick up the tickets, so don't forget that little detail. And as always, if you know of an offer I didn't find, share with us in the comment!
- Florida Panthers – They have two free tickets available for a ton of games, ranging from October 16 to November 28. All you have to do is sign up in advance and select whichever game you want to attend for free. They state you need to have a valid FL drivers license, but there's an option at the very bottom of the page for non-FL natives to get free in on the freebie as well.
- – It looks like they only have two free tickets available for the October 22 game against Portland and the deadline to sign up is 4pm on Friday, October 17th. You have to pick the tickets up in person at the STAPLES Center and they say signing up doesn't guarantee the tickets, so I'd be sure to call before I went down there.
- – Like above, signing up doesn't guarantee tickets, so call ahead. You must sign up by 5pm on Monday, October 20 and tickets are available for the October 21 game against Cleveland.
