Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – NewsChannel 9 viewer Mike in Camillus wants to know why SU got only 3,250 tickets to the game against Michigan, when the Georgia Dome holds nearly 75,000 people.

Syracuse's athletic communications office tells us Syracuse’s allotment is determined by the NCAA, and the number is uniform among the Final Four competing schools.

In addition to those teams, the NCAA accommodates the local community hosting the event and the numerous corporate entities that help support the Final Four and the athletic association.

That includes television partners like CBS and Turner television, as well as members of the National Association of Basketball Coaches.

As SU’s Pete Moore puts it, “There are a number of groups looking for a piece of the ticket pie to the Final Four."
