One of the most exciting times of the year for sports fans, the college basketball tournament arrives just a few short weeks after the professional football season ends—giving you plenty of time to prepare travel for seeing the games live, parties and get-togethers for the playoffs rounds, or simply how you plan to take it all in and enjoy the games. From game tickets to electronics, eBay has everything you need to stay on top of things, from the beginning of your bracket building to the championship game.
Being courtside at one of the playoffs games is a phenomenal idea, but if you’re like many other Americans, you’ll have to tune in from your TVs at home. However, the NCAA tournament encompasses many games at various times of the day and night, and it’s hard to keep up with every detail with a busy schedule. It’s a great idea to look to different media streamers to keep up with all of the latest scores, games, and news. Laptops work well for streaming and the latest action, but when you’re on the go, you’ll need cell phones and tablets to not only keep up, but to watch games. With many free and low-cost apps out there, you don’t have to miss a second of the games, even if you’re stuck at your 9 to 5. (We won’t tell).
One of the best ways to show off your fandom is through NCAA fan apparel. Whether you’re a long-time Duke fan or you’re cheering on the hopeful Sooners this year, eBay has hats and caps, jerseys, jackets, accessories and more to show off your team spirit. With choices for men, women, and youth, it’s a good time to add a new piece to your ensemble, or to give a thoughtful gift to your favorite basketball fan.
For some fans, it’s all about the memorabilia. Line your game room with NCAA posters, signed autographs, and pennants to decorate the space. From NCAA frisbees to figurines, there’s nothing like being surrounded with memories and snapshots of your favorite players and teams.
If you’re an autograph collector, there’s no better feeling than having Tim Duncan’s signed rookie card, or a signed card from Christian Laettner’s days at Duke. Look for CSA-graded basketball cards to complete your sports card collection. A CSA certification means you’re holding the real deal, so you can display it proudly.
One of the best parts about this tournament is enjoying it with your family. Get the kids excited about the game of basketball, with equipment they can play with and practice on at home. From official Spalding basketballs to outdoor hoops that are easy to set up and enjoy, eBay has what you need to get into the game long after March Madness has ended.
There’s nothing quite like seeing a tournament game live, and with the tournament dates and schedule already set, there’s no better time to plan. Whether it’s a gift or for you and the family, search for the best seats with tickets at competitive prices throughout eBay’s experienced sellers to get courtside for the game of a lifetime.
