Adidas D Rose Tour Manila


It was my sister who told me a few days ago that Adidas is giving away free tickets to the D Rose 3 on 3 Grand Finals here in Manila.

Yesterday, online registration at TicketNet started at one in the afternoon. It seemed everybody got online as soon as the clock struck one and getting into the website was as impossible as having snow here in the Philippines. I almost gave up. But my sister kept trying until she successfully registered.

There are 1,500 Upper Box Tickets and 2,500 General Admissions Tickets to be distributed starting September 8 until the 11th. The e-mail confirmation did not indicate the seats reserved to us so we decided to go to Araneta as early as possible.

I'm not a morning person and it's very unusual for me to wake up early on a Sunday. But I must queue early to make sure I get an Upper Box seat. We arrived at the Smart Araneta Coliseum around 7:30. There are already a few people waiting. We decided to eat breakfast at the nearby Krispy Kreme. When we returned to Green Gate ticketing office, we're 20th on the queue.

Lucky us, we got the Upper Box seats.

We originally queued at the Green Gate as indicated in the email. But then they decided to divide the queue according to surnames. The names of the people who registered online are listed alphabetically. 

Kudos to Adidas. Very organized.
