In the first year of a six-year agreement between the NCAA and Indiana Sports Corporation, many of the nation’s best collegiate swimmers and divers will vie for national championships in Indianapolis on March 21-24. All-session tickets for the 2012 NCAA Division III Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, to be contested at the IU Natatorium on the IUPUI campus, are now available.

All-session tickets can be purchased through NCAA.com/tickets or by phone at (800) 745-3000. Tickets are $65 (chairback) or $50 (bleacher -- general admission) depending on seat location and include each of the eight sessions over four days of competition. Youth, student and senior citizen pricing is available ($25) for general admission bleacher seats. Those interested in group discounts are encouraged to call the Indiana Sports Corp office at (800) HI-FIVES.

Beginning March 9, all remaining seats will be made available as single-session tickets.

The community and facility are no strangers to the NCAA championships. Since 1983, NCAA swimming and diving championships have been hosted at the IU Natatorium 10 times, which is more than any other venue across the nation. It is also the largest indoor swimming venue in the country and can seat approximately 3,500 fans.

With Indianapolis as one of only six cities included, the NCAA Championship City program features multiple host opportunities of NCAA Division I, II and III men’s and women’s championships. The centerpiece of the Championship City pilot program is a long-term agreement between the NCAA and each host city to bring a wide array of championships and ancillary events to the six geographical areas over the course of several years. In addition to the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Final Four that are regularly hosted in Indianapolis, Championship City events also include the 2012 NCAA Convention, 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Regional, 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals, and other events.

Each division championship will be partnered with a local hosting institution. IUPUI will represent Division I, Indianapolis will represent Division II, and Franklin College will represent Division III. Indiana Sports Corp and Indiana Swimming are organizing the local organizing committee over the six years.
