Final Four Ticket Orders Encouraged

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State fans are strongly encouraged to submit contingent orders for 2010 Final Four tickets prior to the 12 p.m. Friday priority seating deadline, athletics department officials emphasized today.

"We are excited to be playing this week in the Sweet 16 and we know our players and coaches are focused on what promises to be a very challenging matchup with Xavier and then a potential Elite Eight game with Syracuse or Butler," said Associate Athletics Director Chad Weiberg. "However, we encourage Wildcat fans to plan ahead so that if we are fortunate enough to advance to Indianapolis we can offer a great fan experience and customer service for what would be a very busy and exciting event." 

K-State's award-winning alumni association will again offer exclusive travel packages if the Wildcats advance to Indianapolis. In order to place a contingent order for tickets or travel packages, fans are reminded of the following procedures:
  • Each institution advancing to Indianapolis is assigned and financially responsible for several hundred hotel rooms for four-night minimum stays at official NCAA Final Four hotels.The K-State Alumni Association will partner with Premiere College Sports to provide exclusive hotel and travel packages if K-State advances to the Final Four. This will be the only method for Ahearn members/fans to access the official K-State hotel block. For information on these travel packages, which include flights, hotel, transfers and a Final Four ticket, or just a hotel/transfers and a ticket, visit www.k-statesportstravel.com.
  • Ahearn Fund members who make their own travel arrangements and only need Final Four tickets can order them online at www.k-statesports.com using their customer number and pin.K-State anticipates having approximately 3,000 tickets to offer to Ahearn Fund members if the Wildcats advance to Indianapolis.
  • First priority for post-season tickets is reserved for Ahearn Fund members. To become an Ahearn Fund member for as little as $50, visit www.ahearnfund.com or call 888-232-9074.

Due to time constraints, all orders for Final Four tickets will be processed ONLINE ONLY. Ticket orders received by the Friday deadline will be allocated by Ahearn Fund Priority Points, while all ticket orders received after the deadline are subject to being processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Ticket purchasers will not be charged for their orders unless the Wildcats qualify for the Final Four.
