Capacity crowds in each of the last several years have continued to make the Dayton region synonymous with March Madness and the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament.
A packed house at UD Arena makes it difficult to objectively argue the NCAA First Four belongs anywhere outside of Dayton & Ohio!
Purchasing tickets to the NCAA® First Four® and supporting the Hoopla Ticket Program allows the Dayton region to further demonstrate the seriousness with which we take our role as host to the tip-off of March Madness.
As the local organizing committee’s charitable community outreach program, the Hoopla Ticket Program provides NCAA Tournament tickets, free-of-charge, military servicemen, military families and local students. The highly successful program donates thousands of tickets annually, surpassing 20,000 tickets donated in 2012 and has garnered the financial support from multiple NBA players and top-tier national sponsors.
Tickets can be bought and sold directly with other fans through the official NCAA Ticket Exchange. The NCAA Ticket Exchange allows fans to sell and buy official tickets online in an NCAA approved, safe and 100% guaranteed environment.
