On the secondary market, prices for the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Final Four Semifinals are starting at $301, which is the 3rd most expensive Final Four Semifinals ticketiQ has ever tracked, and 60% above the last time the game was hosted in New Orleans, in 2012.
As a point of comparison, the Women’s Final Four, which is being held in Minneapolis, has a get-in price of $121.
Since rising to $781 following Sunday’s Elite 8 games, Semifinal prices are down 60%. With the drop in price, this year’s Final Four semifinals are now the second most expensive ticketiQ has ever tracked, behind only 2018 in San Antonio. That year’s Final Four featured Kansas, Villanova, Michigan, and Loyola (IL).
For the championship game, the cheapest tickets for the game start at $163, which, like the Semifinals, is the 2nd most expensive ticketiQ has ever tracked. The most expensive was the 2015 game between Wisconsin and Duke. Ticket prices for both the Semifinals and Championship game go as high as $20,000+ for lower level sideline seats.
