If you know when you’ll be traveling to Miami, or if you haven’t decided yet, don’t hesitate to consult the Miami Heat’s game schedule in advance!

From mid-April to mid-June, it’s still possible to attend a Miami Heat game if the team has qualified for the finals. However, matches are much less frequent and prices are also higher.
