Hope you filled out your bracket because March Madness is officially underway! The NCAA Tournament started last Wednesday with the First Four and last weekend we wrapped up Rounds 1 and 2. There have already been a few upsets since then (sorry ’bout it, Louisville). This is one of the most exciting times of the year – when TVs in workplaces all over the nation will be tuned into everyone’s favorite teams and nobody gets any work done. But if you’re trying to attend an NCAA Tournament game in person, get your tickets now because prices are no doubt going to increase once we learn who gets through to the Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight, and Final Four!

No matter your team or location, we’ve got tickets available to every single one of the next rounds. If you’re serious about traveling (or maybe you’re a fan of a one-seed and you’ve got a good feeling), go ahead and lock down your tickets to the Final Four in Minneapolis! That game will be hosted at US Bank Stadium – yes, where the Super Bowl was held last year – and it’s set to hold 72,000 fans.
For now though, let’s check out what’s going down in the Regionals. If you want tickets to these games, you’ll have to decide whether you want to watch Session 1, Session 2, or all of the sessions for both days (sometimes referred to as “full strip” tickets). So be sure to check when your team is playing. Individual sessions are going for mid $200s right now, while full strip tickets cost around $400, depending on the region. Here’s a look at the frontfunners in each regional bracket…
East Regional – Washington, DC
Duke (No.1) and Michigan State (No.2) are the top seeds in this region and they’re both still in the mix. With NBA draft front-runner Zion Williamson returning, the Duke Blue Devils are currently the favorite pick to win the National Title this year… at least according to everyone’s brackets. CBS dedicated a whole cameraman to watching Zion in their first again against North Dakota State University. But some experts are calling for an upset and a fellow ACC team to take down Duke – lookin’ at you, Virginia Tech. Their next biggest competition in the East are clearly the Spartans. You can never sleep on Michigan State and coach Tom Izzo.
This is by the most expensive bracket to get tickets for and prices have only increased since Friday. Perhaps due to its central location on the eastern seaboard, which makes it an easy trip for Blue Devils fans.
We’ve got Session 1 tickets starting at $271, Session 2 tickets starting at $211, and All-Session tickets starting at $434.
Midwest Regional – Kansas City, MO
North Carolina is the number one seed in the Midwest Region, having improved tremendously over the season to finish 16-2 at the top of the ACC (alongside Virginia). They’ve found a leader in freshman point guard Coby White and the team is filled with consistent point-scorers who make them look like a balanced, efficient – not to mention fast – team. Kentucky is always a contender though and they’ll be giving the Tar Heels a run for their money as the two-seed in this region, particularly if key player PJ Washington gets healthy.
Prices for this region actually fell following Kansas’s loss to Auburn, no doubt due to the demand from the surrounding area dropping immensely after the local favorite was eliminated.
We’ve got Session 1 tickets starting at $144, Session 2 tickets starting at $130, and All-Session tickets starting at $277.
South Regional – Louisville, KY
Virginia is this region’s top seed and they’ve received a lot of national acclaim and hype over their talent and tough defense this year. But UVA’s embarrassing loss to a 16-seed last season in the first round of the tournament last year is still lingering in everyone’s minds. Can the Cavaliers handle the pressure of the postseason? They’ve got a lot to prove, so you can bet they’ll be focused this year. Also, it’s been fun to watch Tennessee, a team that’s not traditionally known for their basketball program, top the AP polls all season long. They’ve got a two-seed in the South but don’t expect this to be an easy road for a team that’s not used to the intensity of the big dance. The Vols faced a not-so-easy matchup against Colgate in the first round followed by Iowa on Sunday.
We’ve got Session 1 tickets starting at $115, Session 2 tickets starting at $121, and All-Session tickets starting at $201.
West Regional – Anaheim, CA
Gonzaga is another top pick to win it all and they’re the one-seed over here. Despite coming from the not-so-competitive West Coast Conference, Gonzaga always has a solid basketball team. They went to the final game in the tournament two years ago and this year they’re looking particularly strong, especially with Killian Tillie returning from injury. However, lots of folks don’t believe Gonzaga can be trusted during the postseason, particularly after their inexplicable loss to Saint Mary’s in the WCC Tournament. That game abruptly ended the nation’s longest-running winning streak at the time. Michigan, the number-two seed here, is also a force to be reckoned with. The Wolverines have had a strong season as the runner-up national champs of 2018, so this bracket has two teams who are used to second place and hoping for more this time.
These were some of the cheapest regional tickets we’d seen, but prices crept up over the weekend.
