Ticket Information for New Mexico's NCAA Tournament Games in Portland

March 11, 2012

The University of New Mexico earned a 5-seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, and the Lobos will take on the Long Beach State 49ers on Thursday, March 15 at a time to be announced. The game will be played at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon. Fans wanting to head to Portland and follow the Lobos can utilize the following ticket information.

Due to the limited number of NCAA tickets available to the participating teams, all postseason ticket requests for the playing site of the New Mexico Men's Basketball team will be prioritized based on current Lobo Club donation level. University of New Mexico Students will also receive a separate priority allotment for distribution. If there are remaining tickets, current season ticket holders will then have the opportunity to request tickets. Finally, requests from the general public will be taken if there are still tickets available.

To join the Lobo Club and take advantage of this priority, simply call 505-925-5014. Current members can fill out the NCAA Tournament Ticket Request Form and fax it to 925-5609, email it to loboclub@unm.edu or bring it to our office inside the Colleen J. Maloof Administration Building (1414 University SE). The deadline to turn in your request for priority is noon on Monday, March 12th.

Season ticket holder and General Public requests for the University of New Mexico's 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament second and third rounds games will be taken beginning on Monday at 8:30 a.m. (Mountain Time) at the Lobo Ticket Office, located in the northeast corner of The Pit. The First Round games, commonly known as the "First Four" are played in Dayton on Tuesday March 13th. Tickets can also be requested by calling 505-925-LOBO (5626) or 1-800-955-5626. Any remaining tickets will be sold on a first come, first served basis beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 13. Tickets are determined by the NCAA and the host site for each individual round.

Student tickets will be made available on Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lobo Ticket Office in The Pit. Tickets for students will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Each student will be allowed one student ticket and must have their Lobo ID to purchase a ticket. Student tickets will be available for pick-up with ID on site at the UNM game site prior to the Second round game.

All tickets will be sold as an automatic package based on UNM's advancement to the Third round. Since the NCAA only provides tickets to those schools participating in each of the second and third rounds UNM will only receive third round tickets should the men's basketball team win their second round game. If UNM advances to the third round, all fans who purchased second round tickets through the UNM ticket office will be charged for the third round as well. Information on third round ticket pick up will be announced via email, facebook, twitter and on www.golobos.com
