    As soon as noon rolled around, Ticketmaster said there are no tickets available. Anyone have any luck or did they only release a small amount of tickets to the public in an effort to jack up the prices?

    I’m continuing to refresh and can’t get tickets. Why does Ticketmaster do this? Tickets go on sale, but immediate response from the website is “Sorry, no tickets from venue currently…” Frustrating.

    First they change the time back two hours, then the “Sorry, no tickets…”. Not sure what’s up here.

    I called and was online with ticketmaster at 11: 50 am. When I called the agent said there were no seats available at 12 pm. Online the exact same message. This needs to change because you can go on Stubhub right now and buy lower arena seats for $ 800 a piece which is three times what the face value is. Totally not right for the consumer. NCAA doesn’t care because they want to collect as much money as they can.

    Did anyone get tickets? I watched the countdown, clicked immediately, “no tickets” so frustrating.

    I was on there at exactly the second it clicked noon. Along with my girlfriend and two other friends trying and nobody got a ticket. It’s a racket they have going on. The people who run this event are shady as hell.

    The interesting thing is how easy these were to get last year, but not 2 years ago or this year (both at United Center). Did PrimeSport not get all of the tickets in Indy?

    This feels like a huge scam to me. I would love if they could prove that there were actually any tickets for sale, versus all of them being pre-sold. Stubhub and Prime Sport have been selling lower arena seats for weeks, with specific seat numbers.

    Why did you all post that tickets were going to be on sale if there are no tickets available. What a disappointment!!! Thought we could trust the work of KSR, I guess not!

      I hope so. Otherwise someone needs to put her puppy or husband or cat or kids on high-alert because there’s a good chance MaryAnn will be punting them when she gets home.



    • Really???

      Because KSR controls Ticket Master? Really??? I think you need some Paxil, Mary Ann.

      Skip the Paxil. Go straight to high-dose Haldol or Thorazine.

    KSR needs to investigate this scam!!! I was on the site on my phone and computer and it said it was sold out as soon as the timer hit zero.

    If they are going to presale all of their tickets just let us know. I wasted my time logging on at 11 exactly only to be duped to think they actually released some tickets to the general public. Screw the NCAA

    I hit it at 12:00:01 and tried for 1 ticket. Then did it again.

    Ended up with 2 in different sections. But there are always empty seats because people don’t want to get raped by PrimeSport and the other scalpers so you can always find open seats together.

    Chicago here we come.
