About NCAA Tournament Elite Eight Tickets
NCAA Tournament Elite Eight
The Elite Eight is make or break for remaining NCAA tournament hopefuls, when just one win separates the eight schools from a coveted Final Four berth. The past few seasons have seen some noteworthy, and unexpected, Elite Eight teams. This year's Elite Eight will take place March 25-26, 2023.
NCAA Tournament Elite Eight History
In 2014, No. 11 seed Dayton upset No. 3 Syracuse in the Sweet 16, and then took down Stanford in the Elite 8 en route to a Final Four bid. Two seasons later in 2016, Syracuse made some upset magic of its own, getting revenge on Dayton in the First Round followed by wins over Middle Tennessee, Gonzaga, and No. 1 Virginia to become the first-ever 10 seed to make the Final Four. And in the 2017 tournament, Xavier had a memorable run before falling to top-seeded Gonzaga in the Elite Eight.
NCAA Tournament Ticket Prices
NCAA Tournament ticket prices can vary substantially based on a handful of variables, including the stage of play, the location of the games, and the teams playing. The earlier rounds are typically less expensive. As the tournament progresses and demand for tickets rises in the later rounds, ticket prices tend to increase.
What does a "Full Strip" of tickets mean?
A full strip of tickets includes a ticket to each of the sessions hosted at that venue. For the first and second round locations, this would include tickets to the two afternoon session games, the two evening session games, and the two second round games in the third session. In the case of the Sweet 16 and Elite 8, a full strip would include tickets for the games at the location for both those rounds. In the case of the Final Four, a full strip includes tickets to the two semifinal games as well as the Championship game.
Why are tickets broken into sessions?
Unlike most sporting events, in the case of the NCAA Tournament many tickets include admission to more than a single game. In the First Round, Second Round, and Sweet 16, each session includes admission to back-to-back games. However, in the case of the First Round Session 1 tickets do not include admission to the games in Session 2, and vice versa, even though the games are on the same day.
