Calling all sports lovers! The FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 is just around the corner and it runs from 22 September to 1 October in Sydney’s world-renowned Olympic Park. Within this epic setting, 12 teams and 144 players will square off over the course of 38 games and 10 days, with the finals taking place at Sydney SuperDome. This year’s event marks the long-awaited return of the GOAT Lauren Jackson and that’s just one of many reasons to attend. Here’s another one: our Platinum Sideline Package, which consists of hospitality along with two Platinum Tickets to opening night. Enter below.
And what an opening night it will be! The action kicks off at Sydney SuperDome with a showdown between Korea and China, followed by a performance from Aussie pop star Tones & I as part of the opening ceremony. Then it’s onto the main event, which pits Australia’s beloved Opals against France’s national team. Should you win our Platinum Sideline Package, you and a guest will be right there on the sidelines, close enough to the players’ and officials’ benches to hear the tactics at play. The tickets also include complimentary food and beverages in the Opals Lounge.
As we mentioned above, this year’s World Cup marks the return of former WNBA champion (and native Aussie) Lauren Jackson after a nine-year hiatus. Now playing for the Opals, the 6′ 5″ centre brings an impressive number of accolades to the table. Named one of the WNBA’s Top 15 Players of All Time in 2011, she also won the league’s MVP Award three times, Best WNBA Player ESPY Award three times, All-Defensive Team Award twice, Defensive Player of the Year Award, and more. That’s not to mention her additional accomplishments and awards playing for Australia’s own WNBL.
Will Jackson take the Opals all the way this year or will Team USA come out on top as they have for the last three tournaments? The best way to find out is to be there in person. One can choose between a number of ticket options, including double-header tickets, day passes, and premium experiences.
