Spectators/Attendance Limitations:

Per New Mexico Public Health Orders, spectators may attend basketball games at facilities located within green/turquoise counties only.  For the quarterfinals and semifinals, the host school will determine the number of tickets available if the county color designation allows for spectators.

Because Bernalillo County will be “GREEN or TURQUOISE” as defined by the New Mexico Department of Health, spectators will be allowed during the Finals at The Pit but attendance will be limited based on current Public Health Orders pertaining to facility occupancy.  Face coverings are required and social distancing must be maintained at all times.


If spectators are allowed, tickets will be sold by the host school for the quarterfinals & semifinals.

Because limited attendance will be allowed for the Finals at The Pit, tickets are available by session and can be purchased online only (NO WALK-UP SALES).  The facility will be cleared at the conclusion of each session.  Each session will consist of two games.  Tickets will be associated with an assigned seat within the arena as general admission seating will not be available.

Online purchases can be made starting either Tuesday evening (May 4th) or Wednesday morning (May 5th) through the UNM Ticketing website at:
