Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 20, and can be purchased online at Ticketmaster or on the Hornets App or at the Greensboro Coliseum box office, which is open Thursday-Saturday from 12-5 p.m. Prices start at $12.50 plus applicable fees.

“We are excited to once again have the opportunity to play a preseason game in Greensboro,” said Hornets President & Vice Chairman Fred Whitfield. “The Triad has a great basketball history, and the fans show great support for the Swarm. We look forward to offering them an early preview of the 2022-23 Hornets team in a matchup against the defending Eastern Conference Champions.”
