More than 300 people are on the waiting list for Gonzaga Men’s Basketball season tickets according to Gonzaga University leaders. Ticket packages range from $500 to $3,850, but only a few tickets become available each season.

Five people from the waiting list received tickets for the 2013 basketball season.

Season tickets have sold out 10 years in a row. The price tag for one ranges from $525 to nearly $4,000 for courtside seats.

Out of 6,000 seats 1,200 go to students. This leaves more than 4,000 tickets for season pass holders and fans. The schools biggest donors get the first pick at tickets followed by Bulldog Club Members who pay $250 each year. Association Athletic Director of Gonzaga, Chris Standiford, said being in the Bulldog Club is your best shot at getting tickets.

"It's going to be very difficult to get one without being a contributing member to the Bulldog Club," said Standiford.

The club gives you access to surplus tickets that students do not use.

Staff say the tickets available cost $25 to $40 a game for Bulldog Club members.

There are no plans for a bigger facility because staff want to preserve the Zags game experience.
