Some of Final Four's cheapest seats are closest to floor ... but there's a catch

Final Four seating in the Alamodome for KU students is close ... with drawbacks

Students at Final Four schools can purchase some of the least-expensive seats, ones that are close to the court. But those seats probably won't offer the best view of the action.

Students at Final Four schools can purchase some of the least-expensive seats, ones that are close to the court. But those seats probably won't offer the best view of the action.

Some of the closest-to-the-action seats for a major sports championship are the least-expensive tickets at the Final Four.

For $40, students of participating schools Kansas, Villanova, Michigan and Loyola-Chicago can buy tickets and sit behind the basket, while tens of thousands in the stadium built for football sit in distant spots.

But there is a catch.

The seats are on ground level. The court is elevated. And between the students and the action are photographers, band members and cheerleaders. Watch the video above to take a tour of the student section.

Fans who use those seats likely will find themselves following some of the action on the large video screens above the floor.

For seats farther away but with a better sight line, tickets advertised Friday afternoon on TicketCity, the world’s largest privately held ticketing company, listed all-session seats ranging from $209 in the end zone at the top of the Alamodome to $16,510 at midcourt.
