Sacramento, Ca (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
It didn't take long after Louisville and Michigan locked in their spots for prices for 2013 NCAA Men's Final Four tickets to take off. Preferred Seating Tickets experienced a spike in demand for the cheapest seats at the Georgia Dome for the game late Sunday afternoon as ticket prices soared enough that fans were paying up to 50% more by the end of the day just to get in the door.
There was a slight change in Final Four ticket prices after Wichita State beat Ohio State and Syracuse took out Marquette on Saturday. But the interest took off after the games on Sunday with Louisville taking out Duke by 23 points and Michigan posting a 20 point win over Florida. Some lucky fans that reserved seats on Saturday and Sunday morning through Preferred Seating enjoyed the early bird savings.
"You never know which way 2013 NCAA Final Four ticket prices will go," says Greg Cullen of Preferred Seating Tickets. "But more often than not they go up after the teams are determined."
Right now there is a big shortage of 300 level seating and that's driving up the ticket prices. That may change as the week goes on and fans that can't lock in travel arrangements opt to sell their tickets instead. The cheapest Final Four tickets are for the Championship game on Monday and those don't appear to have been affected by rising prices that have hit the semifinal games.
Preferred Seating Tickets has been providing fans tickets for the NCAA Final Four games since 1987 and they sell both single session and all session strips.
