Arizona vs. UCLA the most expensive Pac-12 basketball ticket ever?

New, 1 comment

Saturday's matchup is proving to be a massive draw on the resale market. It's the only Wildcats game we've tracked (since 2011) with an average asking price of over $300 per ticket.

  • The hype surrounding the Wildcats home finale is very real and Saturday's matchup with UCLA could shape up to be the game of the year in the NCAA. Unsurprisingly, it's turned into a big ticket in Tucson.
  • The average asking price on the secondary market is currently $317 per ticket with the cheapest ticket available ("Get-in" price) $176. Both of these are the highest prices we've tracked for a Wildcats game at McKale Center since the 2011-2012 season.
  • With the stellar play of both teams, ticket prices have steadily increased over the past 2 weeks. Average asking price jumped 33% during that time frame (from $238 to $318).
  • The previous highs was a December 6th 2014 game vs Gonzaga. At the 2-Days out marker, tickets for that game averaged $206 (35% below Saturday) and cheapest tickets were $105 (40% below Saturday). No other Arizona home game maintained a $200+ average asking price within 2 days of the game.
