On the day of Game 2 of the EuroLeague playoff series against Real Madrid, the Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade organization started selling tickets. The demand was so high that thousands of fans were left without a ticket to Game 3 in the Stark Arena.

Just three hours after the launch, the club officially announced that the match has been sold out.

"According to the report we received from our ticketing provider, there were tens of thousands of people on the site and the same number of attempts to buy tickets when the tickets were released for sale. At the same time, the sales started at the ticket offices until all capacities were filled," the club's president Ostoja Mijailovic told Jelena Trajkovic from SportKlub Srbija.

Around 11,000 people have Partizan season tickets that allow them to attend all team's games both during the regular season and the playoffs. Even though the organization raised the prices for the remaining tickets, multiple people were left out of the opportunity to attend the game due to the sheer number that wanted to do exactly the same.

During the day, the Ticketline website, which is the primary official online source for Partizan tickets, went offline due to high demand.

"As I said at the beginning of the season, it turns out that the Partizan season ticket is a very profitable investment," Mijailovic said. "Everyone at the club is sorry that a large number of people were left without tickets."

"Turns out my joke about playing in the stadium was true," the club's president joked remembering his statement about a possible playoff game in a football stadium. "It's certain that the Partizan Stadium would also be packed judging by the claims we received. Thank you to all the fans for your support."
