Not only is this the most games I can remember at the Wells Fargo Center in a single season, but every single one of them will be on a Saturday. Not only is this ideal for making a day out of the game, but it’s also the best case scenario for anyone trying to come in from out of town to see a game.
And on top of that, these are GOOD GAMES! Outside of the Ohio matchup that’s technically a part of the Myrtle Beach Invitational, the Wells Fargo games will be some of Nova’s toughest home games of the season. I can’t compliment team officials and the Big East enough on making this the most accessible season of Villanova Basketball in years.
It appears that all of the cheapest seats have been spoken for already, so your next best option through Wells Fargo starts at $280. But after $27 in ticket fees, $7 in an order charge, $3.25 charge to print at home (what!?), and a $100 Premium charge from Villanova, tickets for the upper level corners cost $417.25, or about $59.61 per ticket. The most expensive option available (lower level corners), will run you $557.25, or $79.61 per ticket.
Hopefully these ticket packages fit into your budget, but don’t worry if they don’t. In the past, when the single game tickets go on sale the $100 premium charge has been removed, making it a bit easier to bring the whole family to the game. Either way, there will be more opportunities for non-season ticket holders to see Villanova Basketball than ever this season!
