Kelsey Mitchell talks with Andy Katz

INDIANAPOLIS — With ticket sales moving briskly, fans interested in attending the 2018 NCAA Women’s Final Four at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, need to act quickly to avoid being left out of the action.

A limited number of single-session tickets remain for both the national championship game that will be played Sunday, April 1 (6 p.m. Eastern time) and the national semifinals to be played Friday, March 30 (7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Eastern time). Both sessions are nearing sell outs.

“We have been thrilled with the excitement around the Women’s Final Four in Columbus and want our fans to be aware that waiting until the last minute to purchase tickets is not in their best interest,” said Tracie Hitz, NCAA director of championships and alliances. “There are still several ways for fans to ensure that they are a face in the crowd to see a Division I women’s basketball national champion crowned in Columbus for the first time.”

The single-session tickets, priced from $35 to $49.50 for either Women’s Final Four session, can be purchased online at

National semifinal group tickets of 10 or more are priced at $35 and are available by contacting Grant Jamieson (; 614-246-7224). Group seating will be located in the 200-level end zone of Nationwide Arena. Championship game group tickets are no longer available. Terrace tables are also still available by contacting Jamieson. Premium seating is not available to purchase online.
