NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship 2016
This year the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship will take place at NRG Stadium in Houston on April 4. With the bracket not even set yet it is tough to get an idea of what the market will be like, but right now the average price of a ticket is $397. This would make it one of the less expensive championship games of recent years.
The average ticket price to the National Championship game over the past few years has been extremely variable. The most expensive National Championship game in recent history was last year's game between Duke and Wisconsin, with an average resale price of $547. This was followed closely by the 2013 matchup between Louisville and Michigan in Atlanta, where the average ticket price was $539. The cheapest National Championship game recently was the 2012 game in New Orleans where tickets were just $233 on average, roughly half the price of the 2013 Championship.
