Tickets for the first and second rounds of the 2018 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship at the Spectrum Center hosted by the Charlotte 49ers athletic department are on sale now.
The first and second rounds of the 2018 NCAA Tournament will be played at the Spectrum Center, March 16 and 18. Fans wishing to buy tickets to the First Four, first and second-round games, or regional competition should go to ncaa.com/mbbtickets.
This will be the fourth time that the Spectrum Center has been a site for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
In 2011 and 2015, the first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament were played at the Spectrum Center. In 2008, the NCAA Regionals were played at the then Time Warner Cable Arena.
This will be the 23rd time that the city of Charlotte has been a site for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament highlighted by the 1994 Final Four which was played at the Charlotte Coliseum.
The 2018 championship began Tuesday and Wednesday nights, March 13-14, with the First Four — four games in Dayton, Ohio. First- and second-round action takes place Thursday and Saturday, March 15 and 17, in Pittsburgh; Wichita, Kansas; Dallas; and Boise, Idaho.
Cities hosting first- and second-round games Friday and Sunday, March 16 and 18, are Charlotte, North Carolina; Detroit; Nashville, Tennessee; and San Diego.
“With 13 cities from all over the country hosting preliminary rounds of the tournament, fans have the opportunity to experience one of the best sporting events in the world,” Dan Gavitt, the NCAA’s senior vice president of basketball said.
“While the start of the season is just a matter of days away, it’s never too early to get excited about March Madness, so we urge fans to get your tickets now.”
The 80th NCAA Men’s Final Four will be hosted March 31 and April 2 by the University of Texas at San Antonio.
