Because of the heavy volume of calls from fans who want tickets to see Oklahoma City’s new NBA basketball team this fall, the team has added a second phone line.
Customers now can call either 601-0975 or (888) 618-HOOP to put their names on a list to be contacted when season tickets and multi-game ticket packages become available, said Dan Mahoney, spokesman for the team’s owners.
Customers also can register online by going to the team’s Web site, www.supersonics.com. Mahoney said he would “strongly urge” people to use the Web site because it will be available 24 hours a day.
“It’s not a priority list, but a way to provide contact information for future season ticket sales information,” Mahoney said.
Operators will be answering the phone lines:
— Today from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
— Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
— Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
— Monday through July 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
