The NCAA is reminding fans to purchase tickets for the 2022 Division I Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships through authorized dealers.

In a press release, advised fans buy their tickets directly from:

    • Men's championship — 
    • Women's championship — 
  • On Location — the official ticket and hospitality provider of the NCAA,
  • NCAA Ticket Exchange — the NCAA's official ticket exchange,
  • Host colleges, universities or athletics conferences. 
  • Ticket offices of schools participating in the championships. 

The association notes that NCAA basketball championship tickets bear unique security marks that cannot be reproduced. Individuals who buy tickets from unofficial sources, including unauthorized street vendors, run the risk of purchasing tickets that are not authentic and do not grant entrance to games.

According to the release, “Fans are subject to local government regulations, ordinances or laws, and possible prosecution, if they are caught selling tickets to or buying from unauthorized sources. NCAA tickets may not be offered in a commercial promotion or as a prize in an auction, fundraiser, sweepstakes or contest, unless specifically authorized in advance by the NCAA.”
