Get your Florida Basketball tickets with TicketSmarter and see first-hand why Florida Basketball is considered one of the most respected college basketball programs in the nation. Representing the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, the Gators play in the fiercely competitive SEC.
Founded in 1915, the basketball program at the University of Florida was originally synonymous with mediocrity. They played without a viable gymnasium until 1950, and never even had a full-time head coach until 1960. On the occasions where they did find success, it was usually fleeting, never truly translating to a long-term winning culture. However, the program would find new life in 1996 after the hiring of head coach Billy Donovan.
The Donovan-era would bring a string of success never seen before in UF basketball. During his tenure, the Gators achieved 7 SEC regular-season championships, 4 SEC tournament championships, 14 NCAA Tournament appearances, four Final Four appearances, and 2 national championships. Florida's current head coach Mike White is keeping that winning mentality alive since Donovan’s departure for the NBA, leading the Gators to 3 NCAA Tournament appearances in his first 4 seasons as coach.

Several variables can determine Florida Basketball ticket prices, the biggest being their specific opponent for each match. Ticket costs will inherently rise along with the level of demand for each game. For instance, big rivalry match-ups with teams like Tennessee or Kentucky will certainly be more expensive than contests with non-conference foes. Additionally, another major contributor to your ticket cost will be the location of your seat.
Tickets for a single Florida Basketball game at the Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center will average at about $24. However, depending on your spot you may find seats for as low as $12. Seats located on the 200-sections of the arena are generally offered at the cheapest price, while spots found behind the basket or at mid-court will likely be more expensive.

In the past few years, the Gators have hosted as few as 10 and as many as 17 home games per season. The college basketball regular-season starts in early November, with the non-conference portion of the schedule lasting until the end of December. This part of the schedule usually consists of at least one cross-regional tournament, a game against another high-ranked program, as well as their annual match with in-state rival Florida State. In January, a stretch of 18 SEC games will tip-off, featuring squads like Auburn, LSU, Missouri, and Alabama.
The Florida basketball program and the SEC typically release their season schedule around late August. Single-game tickets will then be available for purchase in October, approximately one month before their first match. Additionally, seats for Tournament games can be reserved about a week prior to the match. Save this page and ensure your spot and see the Florida Gators in action.
The Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center, or more fondly known as the O’Dome by students, has reliably served as the home court of the Florida Gators men’s and women’s basketball teams. Possessing a seating capacity of 10,133, this multi-purpose site has the means to accommodate several of UF’s intercollegiate sports teams, including their gymnastics, swimming and diving, and volleyball teams. The arena is designed with 3 levels of seating, designated as the lower-level, 100 sections, and 200 sections.
