Champions Classic Tickets Information

Back to Top

Since 2011, the Champions Classic has been one of the most anticipated tip off events on the NCAA basketball calendar. The event features four of the top programs in the country in Michigan State, Kentucky, Duke, and Kansas. The Champions Classic is played at a different location each season, with former locations including Madison Square Garden (New York), Georgia Dome (Atlanta), United Center (Chicago), and Bankers Life Fieldhouse (Indianapolis). The Champions Classic consists of two marquee games, played on the same day. Each game pits two of the most iconic programs in college basketball against each other, and is one of the few chances before the NCAA Tournament, to see top programs competing on a neutral court.
