Tickets are now available for purchase to the 2014 BIG EAST Men's Basketball Championship, to be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Wednesday, March 12 through Saturday, March 15. Don't miss your chance to see Creighton, Butler, DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John's, Villanova, and Xavier in this incredible tournament.
NOTE: This year's ticket order process by the BIG EAST Conference is very different than the one used in previous years by the MVC. Please read all of the important information before ordering and note that schools will not have block seating (in a particular section or sections) as in years past. Seating for school-specific fans for all 10 schools will be sprinkled together within each price option and those seat locations will be determined by the BIG EAST Conference at a later date. Once our seat locations are provided to us by the BIG EAST Conference, the Creighton Athletics Ticket Office will assign those seat locations in accordance with CU’s priority point ranking system. Exact seat locations will not be available in advance of receipt of tickets. Accounts who qualify for a seat upgrade will be notified in by February and all tickets and seat locations are subject to availability.
When ordering tickets, you will have one option: $275.00 tickets in Option 4 (second balcony). Please note when ordering tickets you will have just one option - $275.00 tickets in Option 4 (second balcony) - and you will NOT have the opportunity to upgrade to a higher priced option even if you are adding to an original order.
** If you have already submitted an order, please contact the Creighton Ticket Office and we will edit your account with any additions.
Each all-session ticket book includes one ticket to each of the tournament’s five sessions (Session 1: Wednesday night, Session 2: Thursday afternoon, Session 3: Thursday night, Session 4: Friday night, Session 5: Saturday night). Sessions 1-4 each consist of two games; Session 5 consists only of the championship game.
Make sure to check out the Creighton Alumni Association Fan Central website at alumni.creighton.edu/fan-central for information on all activities surrounding the BIG EAST tournament as well as all other events going on around the country in conjunction with athletics! All activities are open to alumni, fans and friends. We hope to see you there!
