EL PASO, Texas (UCFAthletics.com) - On Wednesday, the UCF men's basketball team will open play at the Conference USA Championship in El Paso, Texas. The Knights, who are 19-10 overall and have achieved several milestones under new head coach Donnie Jones, are in position to possibly host a postseason tournament game at the UCF Arena.
If UCF is selected to host a postseason tournament game, in events including the National Invitation Tournament and the College Basketball Invitational, please note the following information:
Beginning Wednesday, March 9, 2010-11 men's basketball season ticket holders will be able to log into their athletics ticket account at UCFAthletics.com to reserve their seats for any potential home postseason games. This is the only way to guarantee your seat location for all potential home games.
Reservations will be for up to three home games, but credit card payment will not occur until each game.
Season ticket holders can also call the UCF Athletics ticket office at (407) 823-1000 to reserve their seats.
The deadline for season ticket holders to reserve their seats is 5 p.m. on Monday, March 14.
Also on Wednesday, March 9, remaining tickets will go on-sale to the general public for all potential home games and can be purchased on-line or by calling UCF Athletics.
If UCF should be granted a postseason home game, any remaining tickets for the first round game will go on-sale Monday, March 14 at 8 a.m.
Ticket prices will not be available until UCF is selected to host a postseason home game.
If UCF is scheduled to play on the road in a postseason tournament game, all Golden Knights Club members and current season ticket holders will have first opportunity to purchase official UCF section tickets.
Purchasing levels are as follows:
Four (4) ticket maximum - $5,000 GKC donors and above
Two (2) ticket maximum - All other GKC donors and season ticket holders
With a road game, there will be an exclusive window to order tickets through 5 p.m. on Monday, March 14. Credit cards will not be charged until a first-round destination is confirmed and tickets are allocated (based on priority points). Once the exclusive ticket window for GKC members and season ticket holders is complete, all remaining tickets will go on sale.
