Default Re: Tickets To Gville NCAAs

If you all want to try and get tickets, you should just come up and look for some outside the arena. Many of us in Gville bought tickets to every session when they went on sale, way before the teams were announced. There are plenty of non-USC fans that will sell their tickets to our game that night. I've heard several people saying they don't care to be there for the late game. Unless they are a USC or Marquette fan, most don't find our game all that interesting.

What links? The stubhub link? Our fans know about that, which is why they are going for so much $$$. You think dookies are paying up to see a 2 vs 15 when they've gone to the tournament like every year since the 90's?

The UNC fans probably bought most of the tickets because they knew where they would be going (or at least as close as you can get to knowing) for a long time now. Kind of annoyed me when Frank said that. They know "the deal", because they know their team performs like it should and was almost assured to finish in the top 4 and get placed at the closest to home location. Kind of like bama (or Auburn with Cam) buying all the SEC championship tickets when they are up two games with two to play and the eastern opponent ends up backing in. Not rocket science.

I'm going to show up solo on Sunday with 100 bucks in my pocket and hope someone has an extra. I know it's unlikely but gameday plans change at the last second all the time and someone is stuck with an extra ticket and needs to unload it. If I can't get in, Greenville is a hell of a town to get arrested for public urination in. I'll have fun somewhere else.

Then why are our fans wringing their hands because it's "sold out"?

The more surprising question would be; "do we have fans that DON'T wring their hands"?

I think G'ville will be hosting a lot more NCAA Tourney games in the near future, hopefully some regionals. There will always be teams in this region making the Tourney. IMO, either Charlotte, Greenville, and/or Atlanta should always host games.

Atlanta will host the 2020 Final Four. They will host regionals next year.

The Box Office at Bon Secours Arena still had some session 1 tickets available this morning. I asked if any session 2 tickets would be released and they said it's possible. I'd keep an eye on their facebook page, which is where they announced extra session 1 tickets yesterday.

Hopefully Columbia can be on that list. The built the CLA to be the right size for NCAA regionals...

I don't think this is accurate. Nobody knows for sure where they will play until selection Sunday. So do NoCar and Duke fans just buy tickets to every NCAA regional on the off chance that they'll get to go?

They had the highest probability of going to Greenville for weeks based on the likely top 4 seeds and the performance of their team. I also am basing that on the four tarheels I spoke to when looking to buy tickets.

As I understand it, a team in the tourney can't play on their home court in the NCAA Tourney. So...it would be best for the Gamecocks to see Greenville as the host city.

You are right about the CLA and Columbia would make a good host city, but I don't think we would be able to play on our home court.

Not for the first two rounds, anyway.

You are correct. A tournament team can't play on their home court. For example NC State couldn't have played in Raleigh last year when they hosted first round

Yeah but as I understand it, you either have a ticket for the afternoon or the evening. Either of those two times comes with two games, it's not 4 ticketed games per day.

So the UNC afternoon fans won't be buying the evening tickets because they don't need to! Meaning the evening tickets will all be consumed by Duke or USC fans. But since they don't allow re-entry, you can't count on Duke fans leaving after game 1 in the evening and selling you their ticket to our game (game 2 of evening).

This is my understanding, but someone please enlighten me if I am wrong. Thanks, was planning on driving to scalp but after learning all this I didn't think it was likely to find Duke fans willing to sell before their game or USC fans either!

What was the ticket situation like outside the arena before the game?

Here's a link to Sunday tickets. They are expensive.

I only saw like four scalpers and they were all looking to buy. But I didn't walk around long or anything. I didn't see any civilians holding up tickets.

It isn't a big enough arena to host a regional, but the CLA is.

I didn't see people outside selling tickets. Because scalping is illegal in SC, StubHub, Ticketmaster and PrimeSport are your best options. Yes, tickets are expensive, but how often have we been able to do this?
