SAN BRUNO, Calif. --- The West Coast Conference announced today that all-session tickets for the 2011 Zappos.com WCC Men's and Women's Basketball Championships will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 12 at 12:00 PM (Pacific Time). The 2011 West Coast Conference Basketball Championships will be held March 4-7 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
Tickets can be purchased on November 12 by going to www.orleansarena.com or calling 1-888-234-2334. The 2,000 all-session tickets that will go on sale to the public are $135, which is less than $10 per game for the 14-game tournament. This is the third year that the WCC has come to the Orleans Arena, and the previous two tournaments were sellouts.
"We're thrilled with how the fans of the West Coast Conference and its institutions have embraced the move to Las Vegas and the Orleans Arena," WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich said. "We're looking forward to another great tournament and providing a memorable experience for our student-athletes, institutions and fans."
The Orleans Hotel will once again serve as the official fan hotel of the Zappos.com WCC Basketball Championships and will offer rates of $45 (Sunday through Thursday) and $112 (Friday and Saturday) through group code 1WCCC03. Fans are encouraged to book accommodations early as Las Vegas will also play host to a NASCAR race on the weekend of March 4-6.
In addition to the Orleans, the Palms Hotel and Palms Place Hotel & Spa will also have special rates and codes for attendees of the Zappos.com WCC Basketball Championships (click here for more information).
