I wish I knew!
I've heard that this event is being organised by Manchester city council. No response from them though.

Surely with an event of this size we should hear something early in the new year...

Della - I haven't sent my points total in yet, will I need to do that to stand a good chance of being able to take advantage of this announcement...?

I'm just working on an email to members about the points system, you should have it soon.

I'll make an official announcement once I know more details. But the organisers have offered to hold an area for a limited period. Once the details are known I'll let everyone know.

Della, to ensure tickets would you recommend I sign up to the supporters club?

I don't know about 'ensure', I'm still not sure of the full details - waiting for the organisers to get back to me. But I'd say you stand a good chance, rather than the general sale (I don't think I'm overestimating the popularity - I expect it to be sold out very quickly). Plus with the supporters' club we'll all be sitting together, which imo is better than randomly booking seats.
I'm optimistic that they'll allocate us enough tickets for all members, and they haven't told me otherwise at the moment.

whole message disappeared on me!!

Still waiting for details from the organisers. They've been a little quieter than I'd hoped. Hopefully we'll hear something soon.

Womens game tickets range from 13 to 250, mens from 25 upwards. I've asked for an allocation of 2nd lowest price tickets (18 womens, 39 mens). But I've also asked for prices for certain areas and have said we'll be happy with pretty much anywhere, as long as we're in there. I'd rather not have the worst seats, but from 25 for one game, when Olympic tickets are from 20 for 2 is pretty high, and I don't want to outprice anyone by asking for the good seats. The womens game should be a bit easier, but I wouldn't be paying 250 for a seat!

I'm not many people will pay 250 for a women's game in this country. It's just not the same as seeing Kobe or LeBron
Read my Olympic blog here

Leopards - Division One league, play-off & National Cup winners 2012
Leopards - National Trophy winners 2013 - that'll complete the set

That was my idea

Don't know when they go on sale but just had confirmation for the 2 tickets i won to the men's game in a competition!!! Kind of makes up for not getting a ticket to any of the sessions at the Olympics - i applied for every men's basketball session and got nowt. Is it too much to ask for court side seats??

250 for a random international basketball friendly would be a nonsense for a women's game anywhere, regardless of country. I actually know who the players are, watch them and write about them, and I wouldn't pay much more than 30 for a ticket.

But then, the same organisers wildly overpriced the WNBA friendly last year as well, so it's hardly a surprise. Let's just hope the volume of tickets in each category is heavily weighted towards the cheaper end.

those tickets aren't aimed at individuals though are they, they're aimed at companies to buy to give away to clients etc

not sure that changes much when it comes to the women's game, mind you!

Any word on ticket costs? I am not sure it will be that hard to pick up tickets from ticketmaster when they go on dale there has been limited media coverage of the game so far. Will mean I will need half day Thursday and take Friday off probably.

I heard that the cheapest ticket is 25 for the mens game.
Most expensive ticket apparently 250 in the womens game, so expect that to be more in the mens.
