In a statement, the Los Angeles Lakers tried to curtail fans without tickets from coming down the Staple Center.

They stated, "Members of the public without tickets to the Celebration of Life are strongly advised by STAPLES Center and law enforcement not to come downtown near STAPLES Center or L.A. LIVE as fans without tickets will not be able to access the STAPLES Center site, L.A. Live site, or adjacent streets."

Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the newly renamed Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

Vanessa Bryant posted on Instagram about the renaming of the foundation with an image stating "Mamba & Mambacita Foundation".

She emphasized that the renaming is more of a tribute to her deceased husband and daughter as the next chapter begins.

Bryant captioned the post, "Thank you all for the outpouring of support and your kind donations to date as we carry forth Kobe and Gigi’s legacy.. We hope to empower young athletes in a world they left us all to help shape."

The grieving wife and mother had revealed earlier in the week the official invitation to the public memorial.

The date was special as it symbolized both Kobe and Gianna's jersey numbers 24 and 2, respectively, as well as her husband's 20 years in the NBA.

The father and daughter were buried last week in a private ceremony.

The public memorial will be on February 24m 2020 at 10 am at the Staple Center with special attention given to the other seven victims as well.
