Want to see Kansas in the Final Four? We can help!
Can Kansas win a fourth NCAA basketball championship? This weekend will tell, but there are plenty of reasons why the Jayhawks can get past No. 1 Villanova in the Final Four on Saturday and have a shot at adding another trophy to their collection.
For starters, the Jayhawks, winners of 12 of their last 13 games, have been playing teams at the Villanova’s level all season – and through the tournament. That overtime victory against No. 2 Duke in the Midwest Regional last weekend was just another example of coach Bill Self has prepared this team mentally for March Madness’ biggest dance.
And with just a day remaining before the Final Four, it’s not too late to buy tickets to see the last two No. 1 seeds remaining tip off.
On the secondary market, according to TicketIQ.com, Final Four tickets have dropped nearly $300 this week, and there are less than 1,300 seats remaining at San Antonio’s Alamodome. Even with the price drop, PrimeSport.com, which hosts the official NCAA Final Four ticket exchange, has tickets and packages available that will give fans the most bang for their buck during Final Four weekend.
FINAL FOUR at San Antonio: Average Price: $809, Cheapest Ticket: $237
NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP at San Antonio: Average Price: $494, Cheapest Ticket: $113
For Kansas fans who want a chance to see their team play one – or two – more games in person, PrimeSport can put you not just in the arena, but keep you involved in all the action around the games. With secondary market prices the fourth highest in a decade for the Final Four, PrimeSport has packages for around the same price that give fans access to both semifinals, the final and premium experiences, including in-stadium hospitality and the NCAA’s official pre-game party. The highest-priced ticket of the decade on the secondary market was $1,343 last year, when North Carolina and Gonzaga advanced, according to TicketIQ.com.
Primesport is also the best place for single-game tickets, which start at $200 (as of Friday) and there are still a handful of tickets at that price available in the 300 sections. Prices rise from there, depending on location.
Jayhawks fans who are looking for more than just a seat at the game have plenty of options. PrimeSport has tickets to the Official NCAA Experience starting at $575. The pre-game event will be held at the San Antonio Convention Center and includes food and beverage options, appearances by celebrities and former NCAA stars, live entertainment and interactive games. Called the VIP Experience, the party will be open before games on Saturday and Monday and between games on Saturday.
If you don’t want to do the work of putting together entertainment for the weekend yourself, PrimeSport has you covered. The company has packages that include game tickets and the VIP experience as well as packages that include accommodations.
PrimeSport’s “All-Session + Official NCAA VIP Experience,” is really the best value out there. The packages, which start at $935 – nominally more than a single Final Four ticket on the secondary market – and provide access to three games as well as the VIP Experience, and some packages get fans into in-stadium hospitality areas. That $935 price buys fans seats in either Section 311 or 342. For $1,025, fans get lower in the seating bowl in Section 118, which is on a corner, or in Section 123, behind the basket. Prices go all the way up to $7,325, which puts fans at the heart of the action, behind the team benches at midcourt in Section 135.
The fanciest of PrimeSport’s options is the “Suite by Seat” package, where fans can buy a ticket in a suite for as little at $1,250. Suites for this package have a side view and tickets include a $75 food and drink voucher. Your suite ticket is good for both the Final Four and the National Semifinal.
If you’re in need of a hotel for your trip, check out PrimeSport’s all-inclusive packages, which still have availability at the La Cantera Resort in Texas’ Hill Country or at the Wyndham in San Antonio. The all-inclusive packages begin at $2,415 and include four nights hotel, game-day transportation, a welcome party and all of the exclusive experiences noted above.
No matter which PrimeSport package Jayhawks fans select, they have the option to pick their own seats.
Villanova vs. Kansas
Villanova, which last won a title in 2016, may be the toughest team Kansas has faced in the tournament, but not by much. And though there is plenty of talk about Villanova exploiting the Jayhawks defensive rebounding, Kansas has lots of other weapons, including Malik Newman, a redshirt sophomore, who seems to be hitting his stride (he’s scored a total of 87 points in the tournament) and Udoka Azubuike, who shot a stunning 77 percent from the floor this season.
So, can Kansas add a fourth title? Go to the Final Four with PrimeSport and find out.
