Help with Michigan Tickets B10 Championship

Submitted by GoBluePhil on March 5th, 2012 at 12:01 PM

My family and I want to go to the Big Ten Championships in Indy this weekend.  Michigan plays on Friday night at 6:30pm and then on Saturday at 4:05pm.  What are the best ticket opportunities.  I want to buy tickets for Friday but don't want to stay for Saturday if Michigan (heaven forbid) loses and doesn't play Saturday.  Are there tickets available on the street to buy at an event like this.  I hate to drive all that ways with All Session tickets and then have to watch other teams I am not interested in.  For those of you that have traveled to these events in the past, what is the best avenue to take when going?   Thanks in advance for the help.

I've heard that it's not hard to get tickets on the street from fans of the losing team of the prior game. That being said, if you have a group of people, this may not be the preferred method. Might be best to just buy the all session tickets and try to sell them afterwards.

Tickets are available on the street. Scalping is legal in Indiana though so they take full advantage. You'll pay the same, if not more, on the street than just going to the ticket counter. Also, each ticket is only good for a session. Once it's scanned, it's no good. O'Reilly's Pub on Pennsylvania seems to be a good hangout for Michigan fans too.

There are 800 tickets on stubhub for Session 4 (Friday night Michigan and OSU games), and you can still get 4 tickets together on Ticketmaster. If Purdue wins Thursday, they will play in sesssion 4 friday night, but Indiana is in Session 3 so there is no way this game will sell out.

I would strongly advise against buying all-session passes, Michigan doesn't even play Thursday and you don't want to add insult to injury if Michigan loses and then you are stuck with tickets to 3 games you don't care about.

There were a ton of people selling tickets on the street last year, I think we lucked out that IU is on the other side of the bracket because there will be a lot of casual fans showing up at the game to watch them.

I have friends coming down and we are going to buy 4 tickets to Session 4 and then go from there depending on what happens. 

Hope that helps.
