Ticket Requests - Closed
The State Farm MVC Tournament, known to fans as Arch Madness, will be held Thursday-Sunday, March 4-7, 2021 at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Mo.
In compliance with St. Louis Board of Health Department guidelines, the 2021 tournament will feature reduced seating capacity with only 1,400 socially distanced seats available in the lower bowl at Enterprise Center.
All tickets will be digital and available on guests’ mobile devices. Mobile ticketing will allow for no-touch scanning of tickets at entry.
Every Missouri Valley Conference institution will have access to approximately 100 all-session tickets and, similar to current seating at the Knapp Center, tickets will be divided into seating pods of 4, 3, and 2 seats. The Drake seating section has 33 ticket pods totaling 100 all-session tickets. Pricing is $200 per all-session ticket, plus fees.
Tickets may be requested in pods of 4, 3, or 2 seats. There will likely be great demand for 2-seat pods. Drake fans will have the ability to request to sit in their own 2-seat pod or be randomly paired with another account requesting a 2-seat pod, thus forming a 4-seat pod. Electing to combine in a pod of 4 seats with another account holder may result in better seat location based on the random selection of seating pods provided to Drake from the Missouri Valley Conference. The flexibility of merging 2-ticket pod requests into a 4-ticket pod also allows more Drake fans to attend Arch Madness. Ticket pod requests of 4 seats and 3 seats will not be combined with any other account holder.
