How To Get the Cheapest NCAA Tournament Tickets

With these being the biggest games of the year with the highest stakes, prices will likely not come cheap; however, if you’re looking for the absolute cheapest tickets for the March Madness in 2019, you’ll want to do your research on sites like ours before securing your tickets. Below are a few options you have of securing your tickets as early as right now and as cheap as possible.

Official Vendor – As of right now, it’s possible to still purchase tickets for nearly all sessions and rounds of the NCAA Tournament right on TicketMaster’s website

Bidding – One opportunity to secure cheaper tickets for the 2019 NCAA Tournament would be to utilize TickPick’s bidding platform, which allows a user to bid on tickets in certain sections or seat ratings at their price. If a seller with tickets for the game elects to accept the bid, the bidder’s card is charged and the order processes like any other transaction at the bidder’s price. For more information on how to take advantage of the bidding option, view our bidding tutorial .

If you weren’t able to secure tickets through any presales, general sales, or the aforementioned methods for the NCAA Tournament, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Tickets can still be purchased from secondary marketplaces, although the prices will not be at face value. With many big-time college basketball schools with huge fan bases involved, market prices are anticipated to be on the higher side, but that doesn’t mean that good deals can’t be had – if you know where to look.

Why Should I Buy NCAA Tournament Tickets Through TickPick?

In short, securing your NCAA Tournament tickets through TickPick over any other secondary marketplace is a way to save money because of our no fee pricing structure that makes a much bigger difference on the total price of tickets as get-in prices for an event like this get higher. TickPick has had an extreme increase in sales for major events like the Super Bowl and Final Four in recent years because fans out there tend to do plenty of research when they’re willing to commit plenty of dollars to see their schools make a run at the National Championship .

When a fan is looking to purchase a ticket that is listed on both StubHub and TickPick, for example, the price will ultimately be higher (sometimes by hundreds of dollars) once the fees are applied on sites like StubHub who tack on the fees at the end. Refer to an example below for upper level, center court seats in Section 215, Row X for the East Regional All Sessions Passes, which are listed for sale on both TickPick and StubHub as of 3/15.

StubHub’s Listed Price

Notice the difference with the above graphic’s original listed price with what you’d actually pay on StubHub for these great seats to the game. Initially, these tickets were showing at $338.99 per seat.  A great deal for decent seats, right?  You would think so, until you go to checkout on the order:

StubHub’s Price at Checkout

You’ll notice that the price jumps from initially showing at $338.99 per ticket on StubHub to $413.73 each, for an increase of $149.48 in service fees for the pair alone that other ticket sites like StubHub are charging the buyer.

Now, compare the StubHub prices above with that of the prices on TickPick below (which is unchanged from the listed price all the way through checkout) with that of the graphic above for the exact same tickets on StubHub:

TickPick’s Listed Price/Price at Checkout

The tickets initially may seem higher-priced than the exact same tickets that were listed on StubHub. Users may see $388 > than $338.99 before taking the time to realize the they’re being charged over 20% in service fees on StubHub. That amounts to a difference of over $40 that you’d save by purchasing the EXACT SAME pair of tickets on TickPick instead of StubHub. These savings only extrapolate as the prices per ticket increase, so the research before making your decision in order to save big, and this may become more useful as each round progresses and prices begin to increase,.
