Seeing your favorite team play during the NCAA’s March Madness tournament is, for many, a dream come true. Of course everyone wants their team to be in the Final Four, but just getting to the big dance is a victory in and of itself for some teams.
While there are plenty of nail-biting games leading up to NCAA March Madness, if you want to do more than just cheer your team on from the comfort of your sofa you can plan on traveling to the games yourself. There are lots of games during the tournament to choose from, and tickets to the games themselves are already on sale. People buying tickets before the tournament starts, however, are likely to be those who have no particular affinity for one team or another – they just want to see the games. When you’ve sworn allegiance to one school, seeing any other teams play live might be considered somewhat sacrilege.
For 2012 March Madness, the locations where each team will start their quest for an NCAA Championship will be announced on Selection Sunday, March 11. That means as soon as you know where your team will be playing, you’ve got to act quickly and book a trip to see them in action. Tickets to the games will sell fast, and hotel rooms and flights will book quickly as well.
