MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The Memphis Grizzlies hosted a pre-sale playoff ticket party on the plaza on Friday. Tickets began selling at 4 p.m., but not before fans lined up outside FedExForum in order to get them before they went on sale online.

Naomi Reaves was first in line; she arrived at 9:00 a.m. She planned to purchase four tickets to each game.

"I am getting paid to be here. My boss, who is also my brother, sent me down here," she said.

Right behind Reaves was Anna Stratton-Brook and Aaron Banks.  The two skipped classes on Friday to wait in line. 

"We got there at 10:30 a.m. because we really want playoff tickets, we were pretty dedicated to getting playoff tickets," said Stratton-Brooks. 

"We just want to get upper section and find our friends that couldn't get here today and sell them," said Banks.

About 100 people were in line by 3:30.  Many said they left work early to guarantee the seats.

Tickets start at $25 and go up to $350.  Online sales begin Saturday morning, but fans say, regardless of when or where you buy the tickets, the excitement of playoff season is here. 

"They are doing really good, I'm happy, we're in Memphis for the long run so I hope they make it," said Reaves. "It brings the crowds, it brings people in, it brings money, you know that's great."


You can purchase Grizzlies playoff tickets online beginning Saturday at 10 a.m.  The box office will also be open Saturday.
