March Madness Heads To Brooklyn And Philly Soon
March 13, 2016
March Madness is here and the brackets are out!
For fans thinking about going to a game, here is a breakdown of matchups taking place in NYC and Philly this season:
Friday, March 18 and Sunday, March 20 at TBD: NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship Rounds 1 and 2 at Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y. | Buy Tickets
The eight teams facing off on Friday in Brooklyn include: South Jersey’s Steve Vasturia and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, which awaits the winner of a Michigan and Tulsa First Four game; Brooklyn’s Tarik Phillips and the West Virginia Mountaineers, which play Stephen F. Austin; #2 seed Villanova, which play UNC Asheville at 12:40pm on Friday; and the Temple Owls which tip off against Fran McCaffery’s Iowa Buckeyes at 3:10pm on Friday. Big Five fans have their fingers crossed that both Temple and Villanova win their first round games so they face each other on Sunday.
Tickets are sold at first as all-session passes, which includes a ticket to all games on Friday and Sunday. Session I, II and III passes are available as well. Also once Friday’s games are completed, ticket holders who are fans of colleges that lose Friday night start reselling their tickets so you have to keep an eye out for those opportunities as well.
Friday, March 25 and Sunday, March 27 at TBD: NCAA Men’s College Championship East Region Final at Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA | Buy Tickets
The #1 seed North Carolina Tar Heels – considered the most talented team this season and coming off an ACC tournament victory – is poised to reach Philadelphia barring a huge early round upset. Programs like Kentucky, Xavier, Indiana and the aforementioned Mountaineers and Fighting Irish among others have a chance to advance to the East Regional Finals in The City of Brotherly Love.
Ticket options include all-session passes and tickets to the semifinal and final round games.
