ASVEL Basket tickets: what you need to know about ticketing
Buying tickets for an ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne match isn’t complicated. Except when demand explodes! Such is the case when Europe’s greats visit the Astroballe.
Ticket sales for home matches open several weeks in advance. In principle, this gives fans plenty of time to buy their tickets. However, when a gala match is scheduled, tickets often go like hotcakes. Very quickly, the best seats are no longer available. And having two seats next to each other is no longer guaranteed. So it’s best to buy your tickets as soon as the box office opens. This will save you many unpleasant surprises…
ASVEL Lyon-Villeurbanne Basket ticket prices
ASVEL’s pricing policy depends on the prestige of the opponent. For example, prices for gala matches are higher than for other matches. Fans wishing to attend a classic Euroleague match at home can expect to pay between 15 and 100 euros per ticket. For league matches, the minimum ticket price is 17 euros. Intermediate seats range from 35 to 50 euros, depending on location. Discounts are available for students and young people under 26. For prestige matches, a pitch-side seat costs 200 euros. These are the most expensive tickets. A well-placed seat can cost up to 70 euros. The best bargains are to be found during friendly matches and the French Cup. Some seats are at a discount to their usual price.

ASVEL Basket away games
Three-time defending champions of France, ASVEL Basket is one of the best clubs in France. The arrival of Lyon-Villerbanne draws crowds from all over the country. Clearly, the presence of the Villeurbanne-based club fills venues all over France. So it’s a good idea to book your place as early as possible.
In the Euroleague, ASVEL’s away games can also be difficult to get to. But unlike in the French league, the presence of the Villeurbanne team is not the reason for this craze. Most Euroleague clubs have a large number of season ticket holders. When they go on sale, the number of match tickets is limited. The quickest usually snatch the precious sesame.
What to do in Lyon besides an ASVEL Basket game?
Lyon is one of France’s major metropolises. So there’s plenty to do and a wide variety of cultural activities. We recommend visiting Vieux Lyon and the Basilique Notre Dame de Fourvière. These are not to be missed! If you’re a sports fan in general, you’ll also find top-level soccer and rugby in Lyon. A trip to the Gerland stadium for an Olympique Lyonnais match is a great idea. Soccer is very much in the hearts of the city’s inhabitants. OL ruled French soccer for many years. That was before the rise of PSG.
