Riverdale, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
New Jersey based ticket broker Select-A-Ticket is pleased to announce tickets for the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship are now on sale. From the opening rounds to the Final Four, fans can attend one of the most talked about sporting events of the year.
The tournament, referred to as March Madness for it's compelling nature and unpredictability, features 68 of the best teams in Division I college basketball all trying to bring home the national championship. NCAA tournament tickets go fast, with many fans from each team wanting to get in on the action.
This will be the 75th edition of the tournament, and is sure to be as thrilling as ever. Play will begin on March 19th, 2013, with a play in round. Eight teams will play, trying to win one of the last four spots in the field of 64.
After those games are played, the main event begins. The 64 remaining teams are broken down into four regions of 16 teams. The strongest ranked team in that region, the #1 seed, will play the weakest, the #16 seed. The #2 plays the #15, and so on and so forth until the #8 is matched up with the #9.
It is designed to let the best teams, the #1 seeds, through to the final rounds of the tournament, but that's not always the case. That's how it earned the name "March Madness". The tournament provides a unique roller coaster of emotions, as the first round of 32 games all get played over the course of two days. Last season saw, for the first time ever, two #15 seeds defeating the #2 seed they were paired up against, eliminating a couple of the favorites to win it all at the start. And while a #16 has never defeated a #1, they have gone close a couple of times, providing drama from the word go.
March Madness sweeps across America, becoming one of the most talked about events everywhere, from board room discussions to water cooler chats. With so many twists and turns even in the early rounds, there is always a lot to talk about. People across America try to predict who will win every game, filling in brackets before a single game has tipped off.
When there are only sixteen teams left, the Sweet Sixteen is when spectators see Cinderella stories begin to emerge, as low-ranked teams try to fight their way through to the Elite Eight and Final Four.
"Who will be this year's Cinderella team? Will Kentucky be able to defend their title? The best way to find out is to be there," says SelectATicket.com's Mark Gibbons.
