Tickets Sold Out For 2007 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament First and Second Round in Sacramento
May 4, 2006
Stockton, Calif. - The ARCO Arena box office has sold out of general public all-session tickets to the 2007 NCAA Men's Basketball First and Second Rounds in Sacramento on March 15 and 17.
It is the fastest sell out since Pacific, in conjunction with the Sacramento Sports Commission and ARCO Arena, has begun hosting the NCAA Tournament in 1994.
Requests for tickets have exceeded the capacity of ARCO Arena. A random lottery will be held to determine which fans will receive tickets from their request. Individuals who submitted an application will receive notification about the whether they have been successful in obtaining tickets by June 1.
"We are very pleased to have reached a sell out this soon," said Lynn King, Director of Athletics at Pacific. "It is exciting to bring this tremendous national event back to Sacramento and by selling out, it helps assure we will be able to attract it again in the future."
"The Sacramento region has long been known as a hotbed of basketball fans," said John Thomas, President of Maloof Sports and Entertainment. "This extraordinary response to the 2007 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at ARCO Arena shows that our passion for basketball here is growing at least as much as our population."
"I think it's a tribute to the quality of the event and the insatiable appetite for outstanding sporting events in this area," said John McCasey, executive director of the Sacramento Sports Commission.
A limited number of single session tickets may become available in March of 2007, if returned from various constituencies. Information will be given on how to obtain tickets at that time.
