Dear Men’s Basketball Season Ticket Holders,
In anticipation of Iowa State’s invite to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, we wanted to give you advance notice of the process to order tickets. The NCAA allocates only 350 tickets to each participating institution for the preliminary rounds of the tournament. Iowa State’s NCAA ticket allotment for the preliminary rounds will be allocated as follows:
∑ Players’ family/guests - 76 tickets
∑ Coaches’ family and administrative travel party - 74 tickets
∑ Cyclone Club members - 166 Tickets
∑ Iowa State students - 34 tickets
The allocated number of tickets for Iowa State students (34) is the same percentage of tickets (17% of 200 - public tickets available after players’ family/guests, coaches’ family and administrative travel party tickets are allocated), as the percentage of student season tickets that are assigned in Hilton Coliseum during the season (2,500 student tickets out of 14,376 seats).
The following guidelines and procedures must be followed to obtain tickets:
-Iowa State students who are men’s basketball student season ticketholders may purchase up to two (2) tickets, as long as the second ticket is for a fellow Iowa State men’s basketball student season ticketholder (second name and Iowa State student I.D. number will be required at time of purchase).
-Students can purchase tickets (price TBA) on Monday, March 12 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. CST by calling (515-294-1816 or toll free 1-888-478-2925). A credit card is required to purchase tickets. All student tickets will be sold on a first come - first serve basis.
-All tickets must be picked at the Iowa State will-call location at the tournament site (by student only - ISU student picture I.D. required). If you purchase two (2) tickets, the second ticket must be picked-up by the respective Iowa State student that the ticket is listed under and that student must have an ISU student picture I.D. as well.
-Students will only be charged for the sessions that the Cyclones participate in. Students purchasing second-round tickets will be charged for the third round only if the Cyclones advance. If Iowa State does not advance, you will not be charged nor will tickets be available for the third round.
Students unable to purchase tickets through Iowa State’s limited allotment should check directly with the respective host’s sites regarding availability. NCAA ticket info can be accessed by clicking here.

Thanks for your support. Go Cyclones!
