NCAA First Round tickets for men’s basketball are now available to fans through the Green Bay Ticket Office. Fans are encouraged to make a ticket request by calling 920-465-2625 or stopping by the box office in the Kress Events Center. Tickets to the First Round are single session tickets and will include Green Bay’s game as well as the other game in that session. The cost of a single session ticket is $100. Due to limited availability of the tickets, requests are limited to four tickets per person. Making a ticket request does not guarantee tickets to the NCAA Tournament. Requests need to be submitted by 5:00 p.m. today (Monday, March 14). Tickets will be allocated in order of Phoenix Priority Points. Requestors will be notified on Tuesday before noon to confirm their ticket purchase.
