    The IHSA State Basketball Tournaments and the March Madness Experience will return to the Peoria Civic Center on March 8-10 and 15-17.
    The Peoria Civic Center and IHSA are excited to unveil a new layout that includes select sections, including lower bowl and the front row behind the baskets, as general admission seats. With the goal of getting fans as close to the floor as possible, the General Admission set up in select locations will give fans the classic high school seating experience only on a grander scale.
    Now fans will be able to enjoy the flexibility of being able to sit near their team. In order to provide a fun atmosphere for fans, create an affordable ticket price across the board, and to increase the flexibility with changing game schedules, tickets will be general admission style in select locations at $11 per ticket.
    Purchasing a General Admission ticket will also include access to the March Madness Experience in the Peoria Civic Center Exhibit Halls. There will still be ADA accessible tickets and passes available at the Toyota Box Office.
    Tickets are on sale now at the Toyota Box Office at the Peoria Civic Center, online at PeoriaCivicCenter.com and Ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 1-800-745-3000.
