NCAA reminds fans to purchase Men’s and Women’s Final Four tickets from authorized sources

The NCAA reminds fans who plan to attend the 2016 NCAA Men’s and Women’s Final Four games to purchase tickets from authorized sources to reduce chances of fraudulent activities. 

Fans are advised to purchase any tickets still available directly from:

  • NCAA.com
  • PrimeSport--the NCAA’s official ticket and hospitality package provider, NCAA.com/VIP
  • NCAA Ticket Exchange--the NCAA’s official ticket exchange, NCAA.com/Exchange
  • Host colleges/universities or athletics conferences; and
  • Ticket offices of schools participating in the championships.
     

NCAA basketball championship tickets bear unique security marks that cannot be reproduced.  Individuals who purchase tickets from unofficial sources, including unauthorized street vendors, run the risk of purchasing tickets that are not authentic and do not grant entrance to championship games.

Fans are subject to local government regulations, ordinances or laws, and possible prosecution, if they are caught selling tickets to or from unauthorized sources.  NCAA tickets may not be offered in a commercial promotion or as a prize in an auction, fundraiser, sweepstakes or contest, unless specifically authorized in advance by the NCAA.
