Another name for the tournament is the NCAA March Madness, which has a total of 68 teams playing for the title. There are 32 teams that receive automatic bids. The rest of the teams are granted a bid during Selection Sunday, typically in the middle of March. This broadcast show occurs after the conclusion of all-conference championships, like the Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament played at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. There are four teams that are dubbed the First Four, that play Tuesday and Wednesday before the actual tournament starts on Thursday. The games are played at predetermined neutral indoor stadiums across the country and divided into regions, East, South, Midwest, West. Every single team is seeded and has a path they must follow to win the national championship game called the Final Four. The final game is played usually on the first Monday in April. Millions of people each year fill out their NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament bracket. Your bracket must be completed before the start of the first game on Thursday of the tournament. Some participate in office parties while others compete for large lumps of cash. When you fill out your bracket, you have to be mindful of Cinderalla Story games, where teams do better in the tournament than previously expected. Because every team is seeded, there is the possibility that an upset game will occur; that’s when a lower-ranked team beats at a higher-ranked team. These can be called bracket busters that destroys the ability to have a perfect bracket. There’s a reason it’s called March Madness. Grab your NCAA Tournament tickets today.
During the 2020 season, the tournament was canceled due to growing concerns over the global Coronavirus pandemic. This was the first time that the tournament has been not conducted since it started in 1939.
NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Ticket Prices
There are many factors that go into determining how much an NCAA ticket for one session of the NCAA tournament will cost. The major factor is based on the city and how far into the tournament the game is played. Earlier games will be significantly cheaper than later games. Because the Final Four game is the national championship game, those ticket prices will be extremely expensive. When you buy your NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament tickets, you are buying based on the round and session, not necessarily the teams that are playing. Since every team is seeded within the predetermined bracket, you hope that your Kansas Jayhawks will still be in the tournament for the round you purchase. There will be multiple games or sessions played at each stadium during each round of the tournament.
