UPDATE: Info Released Tickets to Public Memorial for Kobe Bryant, Daughter Gianna Feb. 24


People can register to purchase tickets online for the public memorial at Staples Center for the late Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, beginning today through Monday at 10 p.m. PST.

More information is slowly trickling in about the public memorial on Feb. 24 at Staples Center.

The ticket prices will be available in tiers. 

According to a press release on NBA.com, "Starting today, Friday, February 14 at 11 a.m. PT through Monday, February 17 at 10 p.m. PT fans may register to purchase tickets at https://verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/kobeandgianna. No purchase is necessary to register. On the evening of Tuesday, February 18, fans will be notified if they’ve been verified and whether they’ve also been invited to participate in the public ticket release. Those invited to participate will receive a unique access code and link to access the sale. If demand for tickets from verified fans exceeds supply, fans will be selected at random to participate in the public sale. On Wednesday, February 19 at 10 a.m. PT tickets will be released for public sale. Fans with personal access codes will have access to purchase available tickets. Tickets will be priced at $224 each, 2 for $224 and $24.02 each."

One of the options being considered is selling the tickets to the general public for $24.02 each and giving the money to charity, according to a TMZ story Friday morning.

We should find out who will be speaking at the memorial. TMZ says one option being considered is charging $24.02 for upper bowl seats at Staples and then Kobe’s family would donate all the proceeds to charity.  The 24 honors Kobe and the "2" honors his daughter Gianna.

When the tickets are printed, efforts would be made to prevent them from being resold and scalped at high prices.

Vanessa Bryant announced the time for the public memorial Feb. 24 for her late husband Kobe Bryant and daughter, Gianna and the other victims in a helicopter crash.

It'll be at 10 a.m. at Staples Center.

The date 2-24 chosen because that combines 13-year-old Gianna Bryant's jersey number with one of Kobe's, 24.

Kobe Bryant and Gianna were buried Feb. 7  in a private funeral, according to various media reports.

According to ET Online, "ET has learned that a private funeral for the two was held in Corona Del Mar, California, last Friday, two weeks after they died in a helicopter crash alongside seven others. The legendary NBA star is survived by his wife, Vanessa Bryant, and the three other children they shared, Natalia, 17, Bianka, 3, and Capri, 7 months."

E News also confirmed the story.

1010 Wins wrote a story on how Kobe's death certificate was released. They were buried at Pacific View Memorial Park and Mortuary in Corona Del Mar, Calif.

In an Instagram post, Vanessa wrote: "Details to come."

Bryant, Gianna, and seven others died in a helicopter crash Jan. 26 in Calabasas on their way to a basketball game at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks. 

The upcoming memorial follows the last two weeks where the public has gathered at L.A. Live and Staples Center to grieve. 

The Staples Center has been the location for other public memorials for such luminaries as Michael Jackson and more recently Nipsey Hussle.
