SUNY Geneseo has obtained "pre-sale" tickets for the Wendy's College Classic basketball tournament, formerly the JP Morgan Chase tournament, that will be held January 12-16, 2010.
The tournament begins with women's first round action on Tuesday, January 12 and men's first round play on Wednesday, January 13 at either Roberts Wesleyan or Keuka College. Seedings, pairings and first round game locations will be announced at the tournament dinner on Sunday, January 10.
The tournament continues with women's semifinal and consolation games on Thursday, men's semifinal and consolation games on Friday and consolation and championship rounds for all teams on Saturday at various institutions in the Rochester area.
These pre-sale tickets are good for any single doubleheader on any of the dates or locations throughout 2010 tournament. Therefore, if you were planning on attending multiple contests, you would need to purchase the corresponding number of tickets.
You might be asking, "what is the positive of buying our tickets pre-sale"?
For your information, there will be no complimentary or parent passes for the tournament. In addition, Roundtable Athletic Association badges cannot be honored at these events.
Furthermore, each pre-sale ticket is $5.00, the same price you would pay at the door. The plus for us at Geneseo is that we only have to return to the tournament administration $2.50 for each pre-sale ticket sold and get to keep $2.50 as a fundraiser for our teams.
We cannot sell these "pre-sale" tickets after January 10. If you are interested in purchasing your tickets for the tournament in advance to aid in our fundraising efforts, please contact Assistant Athletic Director George Gagnier by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone at 585-245-5346. In addition, these tickets will be available at the home basketball games on January 8 vs. New Paltz and January 9 vs. Oneonta.
