All-session tickets for the NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Swimming and Diving Championships, to be contested at the IU Natatorium on the IUPUI campus, will go on sale Monday, January 14. Many of the nation’s best collegiate swimmers and divers will compete in Indianapolis for the women’s national championship March 21-23 and men’s national championship March 28-30.
All-session tickets for the women’s or the men’s championships can be purchased through NCAA.com/tickets or by phone at (800) 745-3000. Adult tickets are $75 (chairback) or $65 (bleacher) and encompass all preliminary and final sessions over the three days of competition. Youth, student and senior citizen pricing is available for $75 (chairback) or $50 (bleacher).
Beginning March 4, if tickets are still available, all remaining seats will be sold as single-session tickets ranging in price from $7-$15.
The community and facility are no strangers to the NCAA championships. Since 1983, NCAA swimming and diving championships have been hosted at the IU Natatorium 11 times, which is more than any other venue in the nation. It is also the largest indoor swimming venue in the country and seats approximately 4,000 fans.
In the second year of a six-year agreement between the NCAA and Indiana Sports Corp, each division championship will compete in Indianapolis and be partnered with a local hosting institution. IUPUI will represent Division I, University of Indianapolis will represent Division II, and Franklin College will represent Division III. Indiana Sports Corp and Indiana Swimming will manage the local organizing committee over the six years.
With Indianapolis as one of only six cities included, the NCAA Championship City program features multiple host opportunities of NCAA Division I, II and III men’s and women’s championships. The centerpiece of the Championship City pilot program is a long-term agreement between the NCAA and each host city to bring a wide array of championships and ancillary events to the six geographical areas over the course of several years. In addition to the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Final Four that are regularly hosted in Indianapolis, Championship City events also include the 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Regional, 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals, 2013 NCAA Women’s Rowing Championships and other events.
