UPDATE, 9 p.m.: It appears as if Duke student tickets are sold out. Will get the ticket office on the phone as soon as we can to verify.
The Blue Devils still have to win two games to get to Detroit, but students can already begin to make their travel plans.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Duke Athletics ticket office sent a mass e-mail to inform students that their ticket allottment for the Final Four is open. Each school in the national semifinals gets 422 tickets, available on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you order tickets and Duke loses this weekend, you will not be charged.
The best part? A full book of tickets is just $20.60. To put that in perspective, full books are going for as little as $125 and as much as—get this—$52,943 on StubHub. Talk about a stimulus to the Detroit economy.
More details from the e-mail:
- Students MUST sign-in with their Duke email account as the site is protected; you will only be allowed onto the purchase area if you use your Duke email account.
- Each student will be permitted to purchase a maximum of one (1) “ticket book” (valid for both Saturday and Monday) at a total cost of $20.60. Deadline to order Final Four Courtside ticket is Monday, March 30; you will receive an order confirmation if you are one of the first 422.
- Once the 422 seats have been allocated to students, the site will be closed and students will receive a message that the event is sold out.
