We are finding thousands of great NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament tickets, even for those sessions that are already ‘sold out.’ Fans searching for NCAA tickets on FanSnap are saving time and money, and benefiting from an amazing choice of tickets to the Final Four® in Indianapolis, as well as the Elite 8® in Syracuse, Salt Lake City, Saint Louis and Houston, and the Sweet 16® and opening rounds of the West Region, Midwest Region, South Region and East Region.
The NCAA tournament is unique in that hoops fans have very little time to make ticket and travel arrangements once the pairings are revealed, and throughout the month they must react quickly if they are fortunate enough to have their team advance through the bracket. Part of what drives fans to madness in March is the exercise of checking ticket site after ticket site to try and find the set of tickets that best meet their budget.
“FanSnap ticket search results, gleaned from searching dozens of ticket sites, include hundreds or in some cases thousands of tickets for each game,” said FanSnap CEO Mike Janes. “FanSnap makes it very hard for fans to overpay, as fans using the FanSnap ticket search engine can easily identify at a glance the ‘best value’ tickets – those that are priced substantially below the other available comparable tickets by 10%, 25%, even 50% less.”
For example, FanSnap ticket search results currently show 4,000+ NCAA Championship Game tickets from nine ticket sites, which represent hundreds of sellers. The asking prices for comparable NCAA Championship Game tickets vary by as much as 60%.
The variation in asking prices for the Regionals is similar, where comparable tickets to the Elite 8 games vary by up to 50%. For example, fans using FanSnap can find tickets to the Midwest Regional, for half the price of other tickets being offered in the same area of the arena.
- West Regional (Salt Lake City) – up to 43% variation
- East Regional (Syracuse) – up to 52% variation
- Midwest Regional (St Louis) – up to 51% variation
- South Regional (Houston) – up to 58% variation
FanSnap highlights the best ticket values at any given moment. Fans can buy on their own schedule rather than waiting to purchase in an attempt to get a better value, and risking missing out on the best, or any, tickets altogether. Fans searching all NCAA tournament events will see FanSnap’s convenient up-to-the-moment summary table of the available best values at different price points. Fans can also use FanSnap’s award-winning dynamic FanSnap Maps, noting both the best value star icons, as well as being able to zoom into an incredibly useful row-level view that highlights ticket offers that often differ by 10% to 25%, even within the same section of the arena.

A review of current NCAA ticket prices on FanSnap also shows average asking prices vary greatly from Regional to Regional, e.g. for NCAA Regional Finals tickets:
- In Salt Lake City, West Regional tickets start at $103 and average $191.
- In Syracuse, East Regional tickets start at $109 and average $287.
- In St Louis, Midwest Regional tickets start at $68 and average $200.
