Looks like tickets are going to be crazy expensive. Worst seats look like they're $300 for the 3 games or $150ish per day and that's without fees. My plan is to go up from NYC early Thursday morning (6 hour drive). Does anyone think this will sell out? Also, any news of which sections UMass fans should sit in?

$110 (with fees) to get in the door Thursday via stubhub right now. Prices will drop, it's Buffalo.

Not sure on the section. I don't think either days will sell out.
Are people buying Thursday tickets only or going for the all sessions?

My thought is that upper level is OK for Thursday given that fans from the early game will leave, freeing up seats on the lower level. For Saturday, may want to get better seats. For that reason, I may not get the all session and buy by the day.

I'm just getting a Thursday ticket and then worry about Saturday once we've won. Getting tickets for Saturday shouldn't be a problem.

Due to family and financial considerations I have to wait to see if they make it to the final.

I bought the two-session package and I will stay for the final no matter what happens Thursday, having spent $300 for three games. The more tickets we sell in the UMass allotment, the better it looks to the NCAA.

Are we supposed to impress them or something?

^ no but the school is on the hook to purchase and hopefully sell a minimum number of tickets, normally a few sections.

How do we access the UMass allotment? What sections are UMass fans in?

^ I don't know either answer. Call 1-866-UMASSTIX in the morning and ask.

Seems like a long wait until 4/11.

Hope it's not a momentum killer.

If it is, it's the same for each team. Hopefully it all evens out.

These two sections are located in one of the corners. It looks like we get to see UMass shoot twice at our end in game one, as the seating chart I looked at said home team shoots twice at the net closest to these sections. You’d think participating schools would get seats closer to center ice.

Become a corporate partner with the NCAA and all your seating needs will be met.
