Volleyball NCAA Ticketing Info

Recent blogpost: NCAA Tourney Preview

I'm not one for rehashing press releases, but this information is timely and would be lost in a second on the board. Per mgoblue:

Positioned in the Stanford regional, the Wolverines (24-9 overall) will face Niagara in first-round action on Friday (Dec. 4) at 7:30 p.m.[…]

The U-M/NU winner will face the winner of the OU/UND match in second-round action Saturday (Dec. 5) at 7:30 p.m.

[…]

Volleyball season ticket holders can purchase tickets beginning Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 8:30 a.m. by calling the U-M Ticket Office. Tickets will be available to the public by phone, internet and in person at the U-M Ticket Office beginning Tuesday, Dec. 1, at 1 p.m. Seating is general admission. All tickets will be held at will call. Advanced sales are all-session tickets only. Single-Session tickets must be purchased at the door. Doors open one hour prior to the event.

Everyone (except children under two) must have a ticket. The first 500 U-M students with a valid Mcard will be admitted free and must pick up a ticket at the arena by 7:30 p.m. Faculty and staff are NOT admitted free with Mcards for postseason events.

All-Session tickets are priced at $10 for an adult, $6 for seniors and students, and $4 for children 3-12 (children two years and under free with paid adult). Single-Session tickets are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors and students, and $4 for children 3-12 (children two years and under free with paid adult).

Emphasis mine. There is a good chance that all the full session seats will sell out in the first few hours.

Notre Dame will play Ohio at 5:30pm on Friday, and their game should end before Michigan takes the court. I've got an email into the volleyball SID to ask about how many single session tickets will be reserved and if they (single session tickets for Michigan/Niagara) will be available an hour before the ND/Ohio game or an hour before our game, and I'll update here when I hear back.

As for you students, there's a good chance the 500 may go quickly. I suggest getting there a little early if you want to get in for free.

The ND-Ohio matchup should be a good one, according to the NCAA blog:

Notre Dame, at 14th, was the team with the highest RPI that did not earn a national seed. Instead the Fighting Irish are forced to take on the MAC-champion Bobcats in what will be the only first-round match between top-25 RPI squads (OU is 24th).

The athletic department continues their greedy ways - just like the Penn State game, after promising 500 tickets to students, they are now only promising 200 tickets (per M Volleyball twitter). If game time rolls around and they refuse to let students in, like they did against PSU until the actual start of the game, I'll be upset.

The AD should hold itself accountable for its own promises. Is an extra 300 tickets worth of revenue worth lying to your students?
