NCAA Sweet 16®
The pressure is on from the start of every NCAA tournament, and it only builds with each passing round. Sixty-eight teams tip off at the start, and by the second weekend only 16 teams remain. Those NCAA Sweet 16 teams play regional semifinals for a chance to move on to the regional finals (and become part of the Elite Eight®) later in the weekend. These games are true must-sees and fans score NCAA Sweet 16 tickets with Ticketmaster to catch every epic play and edge-of-your-seat moment at the venue.
Half of the teams in the NCAA Sweet 16 get eliminated, leaving the Elite Eight for the regional finals. These teams are truly elite - only the most talented and dedicated make it to this prestigious round of the NCAA tournament. Fans with Elite Eight tickets bring tons of passion and enthusiasm to the stands, cranking up the excitement of every matchup. The four games played by the Elite Eight take place at the end of the second weekend, and the winners advance to the Final Four.
It all comes down to this. Student-athletes have pushed themselves hard to make it to the Final Four, and they need to push themselves even harder to make it through as national champions. Fans score Final Four tickets to cheer their hearts out from the stands and give their team an edge. The Final Four teams are the champions for their regions (East, South, Midwest and West) and the teams need to win to move on to the national championship game which takes place the following Monday. Featuring the two top teams in college basketball, the national championship game never fails to deliver an action-packed, white-knuckle finish to the tournament.
