Gift Ideas For Sports Fans: Tickets To March Madness Opening Weekend

With the holidays just around the corner (yep, already), we thought you could use some help with gift ideas for the sporting fan in your life. Check out our full guide with all our gift ideas for sports fans.

Product: Tickets to March Madness Opening Weekend

What It Is: Ticket to one of the greatest events in sports -- the opening weekend of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Two days, six games, eight teams. 

Why It's A Great Gift: Sure, watching March Madness on your television at home is great. But nothing can compare to seeing it in person, and witnessing first-hand the historic upsets and wild finishes that make this event like nothing else in sports. And it's a great value -- with the price of one ticket, a fan gets four games the first day (Thursday or Friday) and then those winners a day later. It's a total of six games, and with eight different host cities, there's likely a location that makes it a reasonable weekend sports getaway. 

Price: Ranges from $192 to $252. 

Where You Can Buy It: NCAA Basketball's official site.
