2009 NCAA Tournament: March Madness Site, Venue and Ticket Information

Plan your trip now and experience March Madness in person


While there's something to be said for experiencing the NCAA Tournament from the comfort of your own couch, with your brackets spread out on the coffee table, a large platter of nachos and an itchy trigger finger on the remote control as you toggle between the different games on the Mega March Madness package...

There's nothing like being there in person. And while Final Four tickets are about as hard to come by as ducats for the Super Bowl, but seats for the first and second rounds or the Sweet Sixteen aren't nearly as much of a challenge. Check with the individual venues, or try the secondary market.
