Limited Number of Men’s Basketball Season Tickets Still Available
CINCINNATI – With just over 50 days remaining until the University of Cincinnati men’s basketball season opener against Ohio State on Wednesday, Nov. 7, excitement continues to build for the return to newly renovated Fifth Third Arena.
Heading into this week, an estimated 97 percent of available season tickets for the arena’s 12,012 seats have been sold for the coming 2018-19 campaign leaving less than 400 remaining tickets and only two of 12 price points.
With such a high demand, purchasing season tickets will be the only way fans can guarantee their seats for Bearcats’ home games against both Ohio State and Xavier (Saturday, Dec. 8). Those opponents will not be included together in future potential mini plans. Possible mini plans and single-game ticket sales will be announced at a later date.
// UPPER SIDELINE (SECTIONS 202-206 & 214-218)
A limited number season tickets remain on sale in the Upper Sideline. These seating areas are located on the east and west sidelines off the upper-level concourse, offering chair back seating with LED video displays in each corner of the upper level. The 200-level seats will have a dedicated 360-degree concourse with concession stands, restrooms, elevators and stairs.
// THE INCLINE (SECTIONS 220-224)
A limited number season tickets remain on sale in the Incline, a new seating area on the north and south baselines off the upper-level concourse. Both Incline sections are cantilevered over the rUCkus student section and offer an incredible view of the action from a chair back seat. Seats on the north baseline are located directly in front of the 400-level beverage stand, while the south baseline offers easy access to the southwest corner stand.
