NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2019 [DATES & TICKET INFO]
The NCAA Tournament kicks off with the first four on Tuesday and Wednesday. Whether you’re looking for a sporting event to fill up the dead time between the NFL playoffs and the MLB regular season or a die-hard college basketball fan, the yearly NCAA Tournament is a spectacle. March Madness shows off the very best players fighting for their way into the record books.
There’s something for every fan. There are powerhouse schools, Cinderella teams or just your hometown school. There’s also one-and-done, prep to pro players or the school legend squaring off in March. Loaded with stars ready to go pro and the chaos that a one-and-done game brings, you can’t turn away from the experience. That’s not to discount that these players are playing for nothing except passion, not super-max deals.
With tournament sites all over the U.S., including Dayton, Ohio, Raleigh, North Carolina, Denver, Brooklyn, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Anaheim, Louisville, Chicago, Philadelphia and Houston, there’s no excuse not to see a game in person.
This year, the Duke Blue Devils — led by Zion Williamson, Cam Reddish and RJ Barrett — are looking to write their names into the history books. If you miss this team before they go pro, you’d be missing a piece of NCAA history. With close to one in five bets picking Duke to win the national title, tickets are in demand.
If you can’t wait for the tournament to start, tickets for the first four are easy to get. At $55, you can see the entirety of the First Four in Dayton, Ohio. Games take place on March 19 and March 20.
Tickets to see the Hartford Full Strip on March 21 and 23 start at just $255. That includes Marquette facing off against Ja Morant and Murray State and Purdue versus Old Dominion. Games will take place at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
On March 29 and 31, the East Regional Full Strip takes off. For only $500, you can see the peak of college basketball at the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.
