The newest Bay Area status symbol is here: $2 million Warriors suites.
For the price of about $50,000 per game, local millionaires (billionaires?) can enjoy the Chase Center’s biggest, most expensive perks. Their $2 million packages include a courtside seat, but the real luxuries happen beyond the view of other fans. The suites are built beneath the lower-level seats, giving you privacy while you drink wine from your own on-site wine cellar.
Heaven forbid you get that wine yourself; there’s a butler assigned to your suite to handle that. And should you wish to dwell in the private lounge instead of courtside, each suite has its own camera facing the game, broadcasting your personal view to you on a huge video wall.
On Sunday’s episode of “60 Minutes,” Warriors chief operating officer Rick Welts gave a tour of one of the model suites.
“What’s the price point of this?” reporter Jon Wertheim asks.
“If you have to ask, you can’t afford it,” Welts says with a laugh.
At any rate, the seats have sold quickly. A Washington Post story from March reported 30 of the 32 suites were booked for the year. Those high-rollers will also get access to concerts and events held in the new San Francisco arena, of which there are supposed to be many. So perhaps that sweetens the $2 million deal just a bit.
Other box seats and mid-level suites are going from $350,000 to $1 million per year.
For the rest of us plebes trying to get in in the door, the waitlist for Warriors season tickets is 43,000 people long.
