Anyone wanting to attend the NCAA Tournament finals should not wait much longer to get tickets.

The George Mason ticket office informed Of the Block on Thursday that there are less than 100 reserve seats available and they anticipate to be sold out of reserve seating by the end of the week.

George Mason is the host site of the seven-team NCAA Tournament that starts on Sunday. All six matches will be played at Eagle Bank Arena and will conclude with the NCAA Tournament finals on Saturday.


General admission tickets located in the top half of the 10,000-seat arena are still available to purchase.

Along with ticket sales for the championship match, ticket sales are projected to be up for every round of the NCAA Tournament compared to last year.

Taylor Bosket, sales and ticket operations assistant director, informed Of the Block on Thursday that George Mason has already sold more than 1,000 all-session tickets and almost 4,000 tickets to the finals. In addition, almost 1,500 tickets as of Thursday had been sold for the first opening-round match between Ohio State and King on Sunday – an 1,000 ticket increase to that same round last year at UCLA.

Bosket also said they anticipate to surpass last year’s finals attendance of 5,784 people.

To order tickets, individuals can contact Bosket at 703-993-4112 or order online at the George Mason ticket office
