Semi-OT: Presale tickets to March Madness at the Palace are available

Submitted by dlcase1708 on October 9th, 2012 at 10:15 AM

I received an email from Michigan Basketball stating that presale tickets for the 2nd & 3rd round games of the NCAA Tournament, at the Palace of Auburn Hills, are now available.  Tickets start at $150 a pop.  Click HERE and enter "GOBLUE" in the Special Offers and Promotions field to get access to tickets.  Here's hoping that we get to play our first 2 games close to home!


Also: I'm not sure what session these tickets will be for, as they don't show on the "subtotal" page. I haven't bought any because I don't have the extra cash now, so I can't confirm.

Both rounds 2 & 3. If Michigan can live up to the preseason hype, they will be a protected seed and play at the Palace. Picked up 4 myself, should be a blast to see the tourney live regardless of the teams placed in the pod...but of course I hope for U-M.

So, I guess Michigan will be automatically slotted in the AH region if they make the tournament. Just like hockey is automatically going to GR if they make the NCAA Tournament since they are the host.

Nice to keep everything close.

Wow, tickets start at $150?   I saw the 2d round here in Cleveland two years ago and I am pretty sure I didn't have to pay nearly that much for upper level seats.  They were probably in the $75 range.  Is that the price for the entire weekend?  If it is only for a 2 game session, it's a lot. 

Those rounds are really fun to see the random teams from around the country -- like the 8-9 seed matchups.  However, that's a lot to put out for an unknown set of teams.  I wouldn't assume that Michigan will be at the Palace.  Too many things can happen that will affect the seeding.  Of course, you might be lucky, but it is a gamble if you are expecting to see Michigan.

How many games did you see when you were there?  I am trying to figure out how many games this ticket will include.  Is it three games?  The winners of the 2nd round game and 3rd round game also?

I am just trying to wrap my head around how many games on what days this includes before I buy.  Seems like there would be four games thurs, four games fri, two games sat and two games sunday.  This can not be for all of those...
