A Group Phase Team Pass ranges in price from Chinese Yuan (CNY) ¥1,530 (equivalent to USD $228) to RMB ¥6,480 (USD $965).
An "All Games" Team Pass adds to what is offered under the "Group Phase" Team Pass, by securing an option for tickets to the three (3) additional games of the Final Phase - in case the selected team makes it to the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final (or 3rd-Place Game).
