The NCAA Basketball Tournament kicks off this week, and games will be held at the Sprint Center in downtown Kansas City.
With KU and K-State playing at the Sprint Center, the Kansas City sessions are much in demand. Area bars are also expecting packed crowds as fans flock to watch the games.
All the tickets for games at the Sprint Center have been gone since Sunday. Some tickets might be released later in the week, but right now buyers are heading to scalpers, who can charge big bucks.
The idea of the Jayhawks possibly playing Roy Williams' University of North Carolina Tar Heels in Kansas City has some fans salivating. And pulling out their wallets.
Ace Sports' Hal Wagner said the phone has been ringing nonstop at the Oak Park Mall store since the brackets were announced.
"I was suppose to leave at 6 and I got out at 10:30 at night and the phones were still ringing," he said. "We just had an individual buy 10 courtside seats. I can't even begin to tell you how large an order that was."
Session One is selling for under $200. Session two will cost at least $250. Session 3 on Sunday will run you at least $300 for a ticket.
Wagner says if you are planning to use a broker then you should buy your tickets now. He said the prices are expected to climb daily.
CBS and three other stations will carry the games based on an agreement with the NCAA.
And Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State and Wichita State fans need to make sure that they know where TBS, TNT and TruTV are on their cable system. CBS has not authorized KCTV5 to carry any of those games.
