Few tickets remain for Final Four, Wichita State says

Wichita State University still has “a very limited” number of tickets to the Final Four basketball tournament left, the university said Monday.

Those tickets will be offered first to those on the university’s waiting list, such as season ticket holders.

If there are any tickets left over, they will be sold at the WSU ticket office starting at noon Tuesday.

However, WSU officials don’t anticipate that there will be enough tickets to even accommodate those on the waiting list.

The university’s alumni association has filled up three chartered airplanes for fans headed for Atlanta for the Final Four. There are no plans to offer a fourth.

About 450 people will go on the charter trips. They didn’t have enough interest to fill another plane, said Connie White, of WSU Alumni Office.

The planes will leave Friday and return Tuesday.

It’s wasn’t clear Monday evening how many Shocker fans were making their own arrangements to travel to Atlanta for the NCAA championship tournament’s final games.

White said the alumni office will now turn its attention to scheduling parties and events for alumni in Atlanta.
