Despite it being months out from March, the 2020 NCAA Tournament is on the horizon and always in the back of any college hoops fan’s mind. As any semi-casual or die hard college basketball fan can attest, March Madness is by far one of the most exciting times of the year to be a sports fan. Once again, the action kicks off in Dayton, OH on March 17th, and the first day that includes a full slate of games is Thursday, March 19th.
Fans can expect tickets for this year’s tournament to be in high demand, as always, which prompts the question: how can you get cheap 2020 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament tickets?

With many big-time college basketball schools with huge fan bases involved, market prices are anticipated to be on the higher side, but that doesn’t mean that good deals can’t be had – if you know where to look.
Why Should I Buy NCAA Tournament Tickets Through TickPick?
In short, securing your NCAA Tournament tickets through TickPick over any other secondary marketplace is a way to save money because of our no fee pricing structure that makes a much bigger difference on the total price of tickets as get-in prices for an event like this get higher. TickPick has had an extreme increase in sales for major events like the Super Bowl and Final Four in recent years because fans out there tend to do research when they’re willing to commit hundreds or thousands of dollars to see their schools make a run at the National Championship .
When a fan is looking to purchase a ticket that is listed on both StubHub and TickPick, for example, the price will almost always be higher (sometimes by hundreds of dollars) once the fees are applied on sites like StubHub who tack on the fees at the end. These savings only extrapolate as the prices per ticket increase, so the research before making your decision in order to save big, and this may become more useful as each round progresses and prices begin to increase.
