2013 NCAA Tournament Tickets

“Basketball is a game that gives you every chance to be great, and puts every pressure on you to prove that you haven’t got what it takes. It never takes away the chance, and it never eases up on the pressure.” – Coach Bob Sundvold

We’re about two months out from the start of the NCAA Tournament and ESPN’s Joseph Lunardi has Duke, Michigan, Arizona and Louisville as #1 seeds in the latest Bracketology. If you put together a bracket today, who would you have dancing all the way to the end? 

With March Madness comes brackets, office pools, Selection Sunday, Cinderella teams, Raftery’s “Send it in Big Fella!” and One Shining Moment. But long before the season started, the sites for the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament were set.  So, which cities are hosting each round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament? And what is the price of NCAA Tournament tickets? Lets take a look.

 

2013 NCAA Tournament Tickets

The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament features 68 total teams. In single-elimination, teams compete through several rounds: First Four (1st Round), Round of 64 (2nd Round), Round of 32 (3rd Round), Sweet Sixteen (Regional Semi-Finals), Elite Eight (Regional Finals), Final Four (National Semi-Finals) and concluding with the National Championship Game.  It is not until March 17, Selection Sunday, that the 68 teams will be announced, seeded, and placed geographically. 

All-Session tickets include a “book” of tickets allowing you entrance to all NCAA Tournament sessions for that round (3 sessions for 2nd and 3rd Rounds, 2 sessions for 1st and Regional Rounds) at respective Arena.  There is value in purchasing all-session tickets – the cost of purchasing all session tickets is typically less than purchasing a ticket to the first session and second session separately. 

Below are the dates, locations, and ticket prices for the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

    Way to early to predict who will be in the top 4 seeds. Just ask Duke who has two of their best injured in the last two games and picked up a loss on saturday.Lets talk after Michigan plays someone like Ohio State. Louisville should be there because Rick Pitino always has his team there or close.Who knows out west the sneaky young UCLA Bruins are getting better each week.By the way anyone know or heard of Kentucky this year?
