Expect To Pay To Watch Hogs In Dallas

DALLAS -- Much like last week's Southeastern Conference Tournament in Nashville, tickets for Arkansas' first-round NCAA Tournament game (and possible second) can be had --for a price.

A quick check of eBay and several online and brick-and-mortar ticket brokers around the Dallas area finds plenty of tickets available for the right price.

The cheapest appear to be on eBay, but those seats aren't guaranteed for that price until the auction ends. As of Wednesday night, a pair of tickets for session one (Arkansas-Bucknell and Memphis-Oral Roberts) was available for $86. Seats available under eBay's "Buy it now" option were significantly more expensive, though, going to several hundred dollars per seat.

Ticket reselling in Dallas is legal with certain restrictions, including not allowing reselling of tickets at the venue or on state property.

Tickets for the event sold out early Monday afternoon, with most of the post-announcement sales coming from Arkansas and Memphis fans.

But a Razorbacks fan willing to spend money can still find a ticket.

The least expensive tickets to be found Wednesday night were on Stubhub.com, a ticket reseller. The site had seats for Friday's first session available for anywhere from $70-531 each. Tickets for all three weekend sessions were available from $188-885.

Other sites were much more expensive. At Gotickets.com, all-session tickets could be had for $180-$1,380. The first session alone will cost a fan $130-$640. The sites also have parking passes available. Gotickets.com has session one parking for $105 and all-session "gold" parking for $425.

By comparison, NCAA Tournament tickets in Dallas appear to be in the middle of the pack. All-session tickets in Auburn Hills, Mich., on the same site are available for $100-$1,800 while tickets in Dayton, Ohio, are $360-$1,500 and Salt Lake City, Utah, are $270-$900.
