The Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Championships will return to downtown Evansville in March 2022, bringing with it thousands of basketball fans!

The conference will welcome the top eight teams, both men's and women's, in the Ohio Valley. Both the men's and women's championships will use a merit-based format, with the #1 and #2 seeds having a double bye into the semifinals and the #3 and #4 seeds will have a one bye into the quarterfinals. The #5 seed will go up against the #8 seed and the #6 seed will face off against the #7 seed in the first round of the championship.

Tickets are currently on sale now, with all-session tickets costing just $60 through January 31st, 2022. Beginning February 1, 2022 the price of the all-session tickets will go up to $80.

The all-session tickets are really the way to go if you want to see all of the Ohio Valley Conference basketball action. An all-session ticket will admit you to all seven of the men's and all seven of the women's games played during the eight sessions. If you'd prefer to purchase single session tickets, those will go on sale beginning February 3, 2022, at 10 am CST and those tickets will cost you $30 for a men's single session or $15 for a women's single session.

Do not miss out on the OVC action in downtown Evansville on March 2 - 5, 2022 at Ford Center! To purchase your tickets, before the price increases from $60 to $80, you can either visit the Ohio Valley Conference Championship schools' ticket office or through Ford Center box office or via the Ford Center’s website. Again, the price of an all-session ticket increases to $80 after February 1, 2022.
