(From Bradley University) – As the Missouri Valley Conference champion Bradley Basketball program awaits word on its NCAA Tournament destination, the Department of Athletics has announced its postseason tickets distribution plan, as well as a championship merchandise purchasing opportunity for fans.
NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Tickets
Once Bradley learns its seed, opponent and regional site, the ticket office will commence with sales at the Renaissance Coliseum box office. Orders will be taken in-person or over the phone – (309) 677-2625 – from the time the announcement occurs until 8 pm Sunday night and then again from 10 am until 4:30 pm Monday. Fans will then be notified by 4:30 pm Tuesday if their order has been fulfilled.
Because of the limited number of tickets made available by the NCAA to each participating school, tickets will be sold based on 2018-19 Braves Club level and season-ticket status. Additionally, a select amount will be held for current Bradley students through 4:30 pm Monday.
Available tickets range from $100 to $66 per seat depending on location, plus an additional $5-per-ticket handling fee.
The limit is two (2) tickets per season-ticket account and one (1) ticket per student with valid Bradley University ID.
The tickets requested must be for the account holder only (no “third-party” will-call).
All tickets must be picked up from the tournament site in person with a valid photo ID (more information will be given to purchasers when location is confirmed).
If Bradley advances to the second round, fans who purchase tickets automatically will be charged for the second-round tickets.
Anyone who does not qualify or is unsuccessful in purchasing tickets through Bradley Athletics may still try to secure tickets via the NCAA and Ticketmaster.
Here are possible dates and sites for NCAA first and second round games.
