It will be 2018 will come sooner than you think, and March Madness will return to Boise for the first time since 2009. Boise State University's arena (under different names) played host to American sports' most popular tournament in 1983, 1989. 1992, 1998, 2001, 2004 and 2009. Here's the catch: knowing the 2018 March Madness tickets will get snapped up in a heartbeat, Boise State officials have decided season ticket holders for both the upcoming 2015-2016 and the 2016-2017 seasons will have priority over the general public to purchase tickets to the NCAA tournament. Simply put, get your season tickets now ... or get friendly with a season ticket holder.
