For the first time ever, the NCAA Final Four is set to take over AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, for one of the biggest sports weekends of 2014. While the annual culmination of March Madness is always a well-attended affair, this year's edition in the Lone Star State is projected to draw in record crowds thanks to AT&T Stadium's ability to host upwards of 100,000 for basketball.
The current attendance records for the semifinals and championship game are less than 76,000, so should this year's Final Four events set the record in 2014, it will certainly be a tough mark to top for future host sites. Find your seats today for All Sessions - which includes tickets to both the semifinals (April 5) and national championship game (April 7).
AT&T Stadium Seating Information
In anticipation of the weekend, AT&T Stadium will be properly transformed to be able to accommodate the massive crowds in attendance for each game. As you'll see on the map on this page, most of the permanent levels of AT&T Stadium seating will remain intact, while significant temporary seating will be added near the centrally located court, which also will be brought in just for the weekend. The general setup will closely resemble the layout used for past basketball events held at the venue like the NBA All-Star Game and NCAA regional games.
Use the AT&T Stadium seating chart as a guide to view prices and quantities for any available tickets in the 400 Level (Upper Reserved, Upper Reserved Baseline, Corner, Sideline), 300 Level (Mezzanine, Club Mezzanine), 200 Level (Main, Club Main), 100 Level (Hall of Fame, Club Hall of Fame), or Suites. Note that sections directly behind each basket are typically reserved for students from the participating schools.
Any other special information or instruction regarding the seats will be included by the seller within the listing itself.
AT&T Stadium General Information
For major events like the Final Four, standard AT&T Stadium rules may be slightly adjusted to ensure events run as safely and smoothly as possible. Accordingly, please some of the following items which will not be permitted inside during the weekend of the Final Four: backpacks, purses, camera bags, seat cushions, binocular case, fanny pack, and diaper bags. Additionally, re-entry will not be allowed and all guests are subject to search.
AT&T Stadium Parking Information
While plans may change as the event dates approach, it does appear that regular AT&T Stadium parking will be available for the Final Four. The venue is typically able to offer roughly 12,000 spaces across various private lots, in addition to borrowing parking at the nearby Globe Life Park in Arlington, which is home to baseball's Texas Rangers. The team will be on the road during Final Four weekend. Be sure to check in advance if you plan on using alternate transportation such as a bus, shuttle, limo, cab, or any other vehicle that may require prior notice be given.

For the semifinals on April 5, doors are scheduled to open at 3 p.m. local time, while for the championship game on April 7, fans can expect to enter AT&T Stadium around 6 p.m. All times are subject to change without notice.
