Big Ten Basketball Tournament Tickets Information

Back to Top

The Big Ten Conference dates back all the way back to its formation in 1896, and is the nation's oldest athletic conference. It has been known primarily as a football conference during much of its history, but has seen dramatic growth in men's basketball over the past few decades. The conference has seen hugely successful teams like Michigan's Fab Five in the early '90s and the stellar Bob Knight-coached Indiana teams of the 1980s.

Traditionally, the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament alternated between the United Center in Chicago and the Banker's Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, but Indy enjoyed a five-year run starting in 2008. This tournament is both a chance to help strong teams with higher seeding as well as give a chance to teams with an automatic bid that would have no chance otherwise. With a bevy of growing basketball powerhouses, the Big Ten looks to continue its growth as one of the strongest athletic conferences in the United States.

Fans attending the Big Ten Tournament buy tickets for sessions instead of individual games, so make sure to check this page to find what session your team is playing in. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Big Ten Basketball Tournament tickets.

Big Ten Basketball Tournament Event Guide

What is the best time to buy tickets for the Big Ten Tournament?

If you’re just going as a spectator and not a fan of any specific team, buy as early as possible. If you want to see your team, wait until you know what seed they are and then jump on tickets for that session!

Where can I find the Big Ten tournament schedule?

The 2016 Big Ten tournament schedule is listed as soon as it is made available by the tournament, and TicketCity has all the dates and times posted above for all sessions. The tournament is split up into sessions, with each session containing two games except for the last one, which is just the championship game. The gates usually open one hour before the first game of every session. The Big Ten tournament is in Chicago and runs from March 11-15 at the United Center.

How can I buy cheap Big Ten Championship Game tickets?

TicketCity offers a large selection of Big Ten Championship Game tickets which includes some of the lowest priced seats on the market. Big Ten Championship Game ticket prices fluctuate based on demand for the games. Bigger matchups typically push demand higher & ticket prices. The opposite can happen if the Big Ten Championship Game matchup is less intriguing. Marquee teams, like the Michigan Wolverines, Ohio State Buckeyes, Penn State, and other teams with large fan bases, can drive up Big Ten Championship Game ticket prices. The Big Ten Championship Game is one of the biggest sporting events in the country, so if you’re looking for cheap tickets you may want to act early before the big push in late November.

Can I buy tickets for just the game that my team is playing in?

For this tournament, tickets are only sold as sessions and therefore you are buying a pass to two games (unless it’s the final).

Where should I go to eat or drink before the Big Ten Tournament at United Center?

When you think Chicago you think deep-dish pizza. There are a few great pizza places near UC, we recommend checking out Pequod’s Pizzaria, Macello, or Homeslice. The United Center is only a few miles from greektown, and Artopolis, Taxim, and Athenian Room are all well worth the drive. If you are looking for more classic American dining, try Palace Grill, or Girl & The Goat.
