The Sacramento Kings on Thursday will begin offering four new ticket plans for the 2011-12 NBA season: flex, big game, weekend and half season.

“We’ve listened carefully to our fans and created offers to meet their needs,” Matina Kolokotronis, president of business operations for the Kings, said in a news release. “There really is a plan for every fan. We’re doing things we’ve never done before.”

Fans can visit on Wednesday, Aug. 17, to be placed on the priority sales list or call 888-91-KINGS starting at 10 a.m. Thursday to purchase.

Here are the plans:

Flex plan: Fans pick a minimum of 10 games, plus the home opener. Anyone choosing between 12-15 games earns a $25 food and beverage voucher, while selecting 16 or more contests earns a $50 food and beverage voucher. Seats start as low as $14.50 per game with no additional fees.

Big game plan: This package includes opening night and 10 of the top teams in the league, including NBA-champion Dallas, Eastern Conference-champion Miami, Chicago, Boston, Oklahoma City and both games against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Weekend game plan: This plan includes one game against the Lakers, opening night and nine additional games scheduled on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays.

Half season plans (A and B): These plans provide the lowest average price per ticket of any new plan and include at least 10 games against 2011 playoff teams, one game against the Lakers, contests against the Golden State Warriors and L.A. Clippers and two Eastern Conference teams among Miami, New York, Chicago and Boston.

Ticket purchases will be protected in the event of any missed games due to the current NBA lockout, according to the news release.
