TUCSON - The UA ticket office will take orders from softball season-ticket holders beginning now until May 9 for NCAA Softball Championships regional action to be held at Hillenbrand Stadium May 15-18.
UA patrons' regular-season seats cannot be guaranteed, as the NCAA requires host institutions to hold a certain number of seats for the needs of the eight competing teams, among other limitations.
From Monday, May 12 through Wednesday, May 14, the ticket office will sell all-session passes to the general public for any seats not sold to season-ticket holders.
Starting Thursday, May 15 - the first day of the tournament - the ticket office will sell individual-day tickets, if available.
The tournament involves four first-round games and an elimination game Thursday, five games Friday, three games Saturday and one or two Sunday.
All-session reserved are $25 for adults & $22 for seniors, youth, and students.
All-session general admission tickets are $20 for adults & $14 for seniors, youth, and students.
Arizona's game times will not be set until the selection day for the tournament field on Sunday, May 11, though the Wildcats would like play at about 11:30 a.m. Thursday if it is the No. 1 seed in the region.
The ticket office can be reached at 520-621-2287 or 1-800-452-2287.
