Since this is an NCAA Championship event, WSC Season tickets are not valid – all patrons will need to purchase a ticket for the game(s); patrons are encouraged to purchase their tickets online but will be able to purchase tickets at the door and each patron only needs one ticket per day, as the one ticket gets a patron into all the games for that day but according to Wayne State Athletics, if a person leaves Rice Auditorium, they would need to purchase another ticket to get back in.
Tickets for the event are $12 for adults, $6 for seniors and $3 for students and will be available at the door.
On Friday, Nov. 18, and Saturday, Nov. 19, the Rice Club Room will not be available for fan viewing, as it is needed for coaches, administration, media, etc.
Also, the first 500 Wayne State College students each day will get in free as the student entrance will open one hour before each WSC match.
