Use the image below from Ticketmaster to compare available seating. The table above is for Session 1 of the first round of the NCAA tournament at Legacy Arena in Alabama.
March Madness Tickets can be purchased for as low as $99, and closer seating is also available for as much as $1,427. Seats with a perfect horizontal view of the entire court will cost the most. That should go without saying.
While anyone can afford to attend the first four, first round, and second-round games, experiences will likely differ. Nosebleed seats are cheap, but the consumer might have to pay more for closer seats to actually enjoy the game. If that’s the case, there’s nothing wrong with the low-100 sections and low-120 sections as well.
Furthermore, No. 1 Houston is expected to defeat No. 16 Northern Kentucky by double digits. Prices are as low as $156 for this matchup. Although sportsbooks are showing the Cougars as overwhelming 19.5-point favorites, seats are still filling up. After all, anything can happen during March Madness. Per ESPN’s Basketball Power Index, Houston has a 97.9% chance of defeating Northern Kentucky.
