Should Villanova win another NCAA basketball championship, it would be, well, perfect. After all, the Wildcats had “The Perfect Game” when they won in 1985 and “The Perfect Ending” when they won in 2016. Maybe “ending” wasn’t the quite word there.
Consider: Villanova shot 78.6 percent in its 1985 national championship and remains the lowest seed to have ever won a title (they were No. 8); and in 2016, a 3-point buzzer beater certainly made the game one for the highlight reels.
The question is what will Villanova do this time around? For fans who want to be there in person to find out, PrimeSport.com has multiple options still available and has the best seats still available for the Final Four and National Championship, set for March 31-April 2 at San Antonio’s Alamodome.
Those in need of game tickets only can search the official NCAA Final Four ticket exchange, which has the best seats available in the Alamodome, starting as low as $195 for a pairs of seats in the 300 sections. The selection at the lowest price is limited, but also available on the Exchange are pockets of tickets at every level. The priciest ticket on the Exchange is $8,500 for a seat in Section 135 behind the team benches, in Row D. That’s so close, fans will be able to practically touch the action and, see, if not feel, the sweat. Selected seats on the Exchange include in-stadium club access.
Single-game tickets aren’t all PrimeSport has available for Villanova fans hoping to see their team win a third national title.
FINAL FOUR at San Antonio: Average Price: $1,108, Cheapest Ticket: $277
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP at San Antonio: Average Price: $619, Cheapest Ticket: $176
On the secondary market, prices for the Final Four and National Championship have been on a steady rise. At an $1,108 average asking price as of Tuesday, tickets to the 2018 Final Four are tied as the second most expensive in a decade, according to data from TicketIQ.com. The 2015 championship cost the same and last year’s Final Four, from which North Carolina and Gonzaga advanced, was the priciest at $1,343.
If those prices seem high, PrimeSport has the answer. In addition to single-game tickets on the Exchange, PrimeSport has packages that can include accommodations, exclusive experiences and some transportation. While fans can buy access to the NCAA’s “VIP Experience” through PrimeSport, the company also has packages with tickets included – and fans can build their own experience by selecting their seats. With PrimeSport’s “All-Session + Official NCAA VIP Experience, fans get tickets to both semi finals and the national finals for less than the cost of a Final Four ticket on the secondary market.
If you’re looking for a great deal, consider these great-value seats available (as of Wednesday):
- $957.50 gets you in the door of the Alamodome. Multiple seats are available in the third deck, above the press box and sidelines.
- If you’re willing to spend a little more, PrimeSport has seats behind the baskets, among them Sections 101, 102 and 123, available for as little as $1,170.
- On the second level, in Sections 235 and 236, fans can get a great view of the action for about $3,000. This is the level of the press box, so you know the view to the floor will be clear.
- If you’ve got a bigger budget, as little as $4,000 will get you a seat in the lower bowl in Section 112, which is at midcourt. These seats are 28 rows up, but still close enough to the action to see the players’ faces and feel the intensity of the game. Seats at this price level and above include not only the VIP Experience, but access to an in-stadium hospitality club.
Villanova vs. Kansas
The second of the two semifinals – No. 3 Michigan vs. No. 11 Loyola-Chicago is the first – this game is all chalk. Two big-time teams, both of which travel well, will likely play a high-scoring, high-energy game. The matchup ensures that at least one No. 1 seed will get to the National Championship. The question is whether Villanova will be on its way to adding a third title or Kansas a fourth?
Either way, PrimeSport can get you there to see it.
