Postseason Ticket Policies

Men’s Basketball 2018 NCAA Tournament Information and Ticket Policies

The demand for NCAA Tournament tickets will far exceed our allotment. The deadline for Bonnies Athletic Fund donors, season ticket holders and corporate sponsors to request tickets has passed. We expect to allot a certain amount of our tickets to St. Bonaventure students.

The vast majority of fan requests are unlikely to secure any tickets through St. Bonaventure. You are encouraged to contact the host venue directly or secure alternative ticket arrangements for these sites. Official 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Ticket Information can be found at


St. Bonaventure’s tickets will be allocated based upon fiscal year 2017-18 donations. If giving is equal among two or more donors, lifetime giving to St. Bonaventure Athletics will determine rank for allocation of tickets. Corporate sponsor ticket requests will also be allocated based upon 2017-18 sponsorship level. Levels and ticket order maximums are as follows:

     Donor Contribution        Max. Tickets Allowed  
$15,000+ 6
$7,500 - $14,999 4
$1,800 - $7,499 2
     Sponsor Level        Max. Tickets Allowed  
$15,000+ 4
$7,500 - $14,999 2


Please Note: This will serve as a guideline for allocation and does not guarantee anyone at any level the number of tickets requested.

If you submitted a request to purchase tickets and your order is accepted, your credit card will be charged and you will receive notification of ticket request fulfillment on Wednesday, March 14. If the Bonnies win, you will automatically be issued and charged for tickets to the second round. You may not purchase tickets for one round but not the next. This policy applies to the opening rounds contested in the same location, not to games in Dayton or any rounds after the first weekend.

All tickets purchased through St. Bonaventure’s allotment must be picked up at the host site’s arena. Further details (location, pickup times, etc.) will be communicated directly to ticket purchasers. For questions or more information, please contact the SBU Ticket Office by calling (716) 375-2500 or emailing
