Tickets on sale starting Wednesday for 2016 NCAA DI Wrestling Championships

INDIANAPOLIS -- Tickets for the 2016 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships will go on sale Wednesday, March 18 at 12 p.m. ET.  The championships are set for March 17-19, 2016 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

All-session tickets will be available for purchase exclusively online

The championships will mark the first NCAA final of any sport at The Garden since men’s basketball in 1950, when CCNY beat Bradley to win the national championship. Madison Square Garden will host the championships in association with Hofstra University. 

The 2016 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships at Madison Square Garden will mark only the third time the championships have taken place in the state of New York. In 1964, Cornell hosted the event, during which Oklahoma State won the national championship and in 2002 when Minnesota claimed the team title in Albany.  

More than 2,400 student-athletes from across the country will compete for the opportunity to become one of 330 wrestlers to advance to the championships at Madison Square Garden.

In 2012, Madison Square Garden hosted its first college wrestling event with the inaugural Grapple at The Garden, welcoming 14 Division I programs. Since then, Grapple at The Garden has featured more than 30 NCAA institutions. 

The NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships have had five consecutive sell outs: 2010 in Omaha, Nebraska, 2011 in Philadelphia, 2012 in St. Louis, 2013 in Des Moines, Iowa and 2014 in Oklahoma City. The 2015 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships are set for March 19-21 at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
