SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Jan 18, 2012) - New York Knicks tickets are one of the best-selling in the NBA, but where the Knicks separate themselves from the rest of the league is their popularity among international basketball fans.
New York City welcomes millions of tourists from around the world each year, and Madison Square Garden has become an attraction for many of those visitors to the Big Apple. So far this NBA season, international customers have purchased the majority of the tickets for Knicks games at MSG on TicketNetwork.com, accounting for 66% of the tickets sold. By comparison, only 7% of tickets sold for all other NBA teams on TicketNetwork.com this season were purchased by customers outside the U.S.
Orders for Knicks tickets have come in from a total of 24 different countries, with 28% of the orders coming from France alone. Other countries with sales include the United Kingdom, Ireland, Mexico, Sweden and Italy. Meanwhile, there were only 18 different U.S. states that have customers visiting New York to see the Knicks.
