New Orleans Hornets Basketball

Hornets Basketball

Get your tickets now for the New Orleans Hornets – the city’s one and only professional basketball team. Whether you’re a die-hard basketball fan, or just looking for a night of exciting entertainment, Hornets games guarantee a great, action-packed evening.

The team came to New Orleans in 2002 and has had the city buzzing with excitement ever since. After a brief stay in Oklahoma City following Hurricane Katrina, the Hornets returned to the city back and better than ever.

The official season usually begins in early November and lasts anywhere from April to June, depending on their eligibility for the NBA Playoff Games.

Games are held in the New Orleans Arena, a state-of-the-art sports venue located in Downtown New Orleans, just minutes away from the French Quarter.

Come cheer the Hornets to victory alongside the team’s spirited dance team, the Honeybees, and Hugo the Hornet, the team’s energetic mascot.
