Information on how to get tickets for the February 24 memorial at Staples Center honoring Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and the seven others killed in a helicopter crash last month were released Friday.

We're told tickets will be available to the general public, although there will be a number of invited guests who get tickets first, including family, friends, players, National Basketball Association officials and, we're told, season ticket holders.

Ticket sale proceeds will go to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.

If demand for tickets from verified fans exceeds supply, fans will be selected at random to participate in the public sale.

TMZ reports the memorial service will be televised live on "multiple networks" and the streets around the Staples Center will be closed for "security and traffic control".

The Lakers' statement did not include any details about the memorial itself.

It's been nearly three weeks since the Los Angeles Lakers legend and his 13-year-old daughter died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

Staples Center, known as "the house that Kobe built", is where Bryant starred for most of his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Daily Mail, the service was held quietly on Friday, February 7, at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, California with no photographers present.

THE NATIONAL Basketball Association (NBA) have announced that Grammy-Award-winning recording artist and Academy Award-winning actress and Chicago native Jennifer Hudson will perform a special tribute to the late Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and their seven friends that tragically passed away on January 26.

Both teams will wear jersey patches displaying nine stars, representing the nine people who were killed in the crash.
