Now that the brackets are set, Cards and Cats fans are getting their travel plans together.

We did all the work and found out how to get you tickets to both UofL and UK games but we must warn you tickets are running out and flights are pricey.

University of Louisville received a limited supply of tickets for first and second rounds in Jacksonville, Florida.

Some season tickets holders and UofL students who entered a ticket lottery are going to get tickets.

If there are any left, UofL started taking names at 9:00 a.m. Monday morning for a ticket waiting list.  To get on that list, you can call 502- 852-5151.
 
Otherwise, UofL is suggesting you get the tickets through Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster is selling the tickets as a package deal meaning you pay one price and it gets you into both rounds.  There were only 500 tickets left Monday afternoon that were only upper level at $216 a person.

Now for flights from Louisville to Jacksonville,  round trip is pricey.

They are running anywhere from $700 to over a thousand dollars $1000.

UK will be playing in New Orleans.

They are also doing a ticket lottery for students that happened Monday afternoon.

You can also get tickets through Ticketmaster with a similar deal.  It’s a package deal that will get you into round 1 and 2. Ticketmaster told me there are fewer tickets left to this games that are only upper-level seating at $199 a person.

Flights from Louisville to New Orleans look like they'll cost you close to a $1000, if not more.

When buying tickets, beware of scams and check the Better Business Bureau.  We’ll have a full report on potential bad deals Monday at 11:00 p.m.
