March Madness Ticket Prices Going Through the Roof
Here’s the news from SeatGeek:
“It’s been over 50 years since Madison Square Garden hosted NCAA Basketball Tournament games, and getting the local underdog in the bracket has only furthered the frenzy. Friday’s doubleheader is the most expensive single-admission college basketball event MSG has ever hosted.
Tickets for UVa-Michigan State and UConn-Iowa State are going for $355 each on average, coming in ahead of last year’s Big East conference tournament semifinal doubleheader ($266 average ticket price), which featured the final Big East meeting between Syracuse and Georgetown as well as Notre Dame-Louisville. To put Friday’s games in a wider MSG context, ticket prices are on par with those for the Knicks-Heat game on the eve of this year’s Super Bowl ($373 average ticket price) and the Rangers’ Eastern Conference Semifinal games against the Bruins last season ($381 average ticket price).”
