What vacation is complete without a little action-packed sports event? Here at Orlando Fun Tickets, we are your home for not only discounted tickets to all of the local theme parks and attractions, but also for the Orlando Magic of the NBA. The Magic are Central Florida’s only professional sports franchise and have been entertaining thousands of fans since the 1989-90 NBA season. Located just a short 20-mile drive from the attractions area in the heart of downtown Orlando, you won’t want to miss a minute of the heart-pounding excitement that unfolds 41 nights a year at the over 17,000-seat Amway Arena!
The Magic proudly boasts a trip to the NBA Finals in 1995 and a long-standing tradition of excellence on the basketball court and in the Central Florida community. And with two All-Stars on this year’s team, Dwight Howard and the newly-acquired Rashard Lewis, the Magic are looking to improve upon their eighth-place standing in the Eastern Conference a year ago.
The 2007-08 NBA season kicked off in October for the Magic with four preseason home games, followed by the NBA regular-season opener on October 31, 2007 vs. the Milwaukee Bucks. The season home game highlights included two visits from some of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, including the Detroit Pistons (Nov. 2, 2007 and Jan. 21, 2008), LeBron James and the defending Eastern Conference Champion Cleveland Cavaliers (Feb. 11, 2008 and March 17, 2008) and the new powerhouse in the East, the Boston Celtics (Nov. 18, 2007 and Jan. 27, 2008). The NBA Champions of the 2006-07 season, the San Antonio Spurs, also came to town twice, once in the preseason (Oct. 25, 2007) and again in the regular season (March 25, 2008). All of Orlando is looking forward to the playoffs and next season! No matter what Orlando Magic game you decide to attend next season, just know that you are sure to be in for a real treat!
Going to an Orlando Magic basketball game is so much more than just watching the action on the court from the best athletes in the world. In addition to some of the best in-game entertainment around the league, the Magic also have events that go on outside of the arena prior to the game, including inflatable games and a plethora of activities for families and kids. There are also tons of giveaways during the season, including autographed pictures of players or figurines of top players, and theme nights throughout the season, so you never know what you are going to get when you enter the gates!
Ticket highlights for the Orlando Magic 2007-08 season included: a franchise-most 8,417 seats priced $ 25 or under per game, a $ 25 lower bowl ticket and, for the 10th straight year, tickets priced at $ 10 per game.
