- After you’ve filled out the form, you’re signed up! You will NOT receive a confirmation email or the actual tickets.

How To Get There?
To reach the Gran Canaria Arena for the basketball match tonight, you have a few transportation options. The quickest is by taxi, which will take approximately 15 minutes. However, the most convenient and cost-effective choice is to take the bus. If you don’t have a bus card, you can pay the €1.40 fare in cash or with your card directly on the bus. Be sure to have small coins or notes for this. If you have a bus card or the Guaguas app, your fare will be much cheaper. Buses that will get you to the arena include numbers 45, 26, 44, and 47 (if you’re starting from the Plaza de España area). For the most up-to-date information and to plan your trip efficiently, consult Google Maps.
