Purchasing NCAA First Four Tickets and supporting the Hoopla Ticket Program allows us to further demonstrate the seriousness with which we take our role as host of the NCAA First Four.
Capacity crowds in each of the last few years have continued to make the Dayton region synonymous with NCAA tournament. A packed house at UD Arena make it difficult to objectively argue the First Four belongs anywhere outside of Dayton & Ohio!
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 10,000 tickets donated in 2014 and has garnered the financial support from multiple NBA players and top-tier national sponsors.
