HOUSTON - As the NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four draws closer in making its return to the city, supporters of the University of Houston Athletics Department will have a chance to purchase tickets.
Beginning Tuesday, Feb. 8, Houston fans who are Cougar Pride members and men's basketball season-ticket holders can purchase tickets to the Final Four.
Ticket sales will continue at the Houston Athletics Ticket Office through Monday, Feb. 14, or until tickets are sold out.
The NCAA Final Four will be played April 2 with the NCAA National Championship Game slated for 8 p.m., April 4, at Reliant Stadium.
Fans will have two options when purchasing NCAA Final Four tickets. Tickets for $202.50 will be available on the lower or mid-levels of the arena behind the baskets. Tickets for $182.50 also will be on sale and located in the upper level.
Each package includes tickets for both the Final Four and National Championship games.
HOW TO PURCHASE
Fans have several options when ordering their NCAA Final Four tickets. They can visit the Athletics Ticket Office, located on the first floor of the Athletics/Alumni Center by the UH Fan Shop, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Fans also can call 713-GO-COOGS (462-6647) to buy tickets. On-line purchases for Final Four tickets will not be available.
Pre-paid parking passes will be available for $50. Fans can purchase one parking pass for every two tickets purchased.
Maximum quantities listed will not be exceeded. However representatives from the Houston Athletics Ticket Office will accept requests for up to four additional tickets.
Once sales to season-ticket holders and donors are completed, representatives from the Athletics Ticket Office will fill requests based on the priority point system if tickets remain.
Due to increased commitments to the participating teams and other NCAA affiliates, the Athletics Ticket Office did not receive the same locations for tickets as during the NCAA Regionals in past years.
Representatives from the Athletics Ticket Office are pleased to provide Cougar supporters with the opportunity to purchase tickets to an event with such a high-ticket demand.
Ticket buyers can place requests to sit with friends. Seats will not be allocated until a later date and will be assigned in priority point order. Seating requests will be filled based on the lowest priority point total in the group.
