The Montana State Men's and Women's basketball teams are preparing to hit the road to play in the Big Sky Conference Basketball Championships next week in Boise, Idaho.

The 2021 Big Sky Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships will be held at Idaho Central Arena in Boise, Idaho, from March 8-13.

According to a press release from the Big Sky Conference, limited fans will be allowed to attend the games. Tickets for the tournament will be distributed by the 11 Big Sky institutions. Tickets cannot be purchased from the arena or the conference office. Each Big Sky athletic department will communicate its process for determining who can purchase or receive tickets, and then will communicate directly with those fans about when and where at the arena to pick up their tickets on-site the day of each game.

Our schools receive tremendous support from their fans, and we ask that those who will be visiting Boise adhere to all health and safety measures by maintaining their distance at all times from our student-athletes and coaches so our champions have the opportunity to participate in March Madness.

Commissioner Tom Wistrcill said.

A ticket will admit a spectator to watch only the game in which their team is competing, as this year there will not be sessions with multiple contests. The arena will be cleared after every game to allow for a thorough cleaning, disinfecting, and other safety measures before fans are admitted for the next contest. All attendees must wear face coverings and physically distance themselves from others, and seating options will be designated in blocks of no more than four with each team’s fans assigned to specific sections.

Concessions will not be available during the tournament, but each attendee will be allowed to bring in an unopened bottle of water. No other outside food or drink will be permitted, and only small clear bags will be allowed for entry. Fans will not be able to reenter after they exit the arena.

If you want to head to Boise, Idaho to root for the Bobcats next week in the tournament, information on tickets is available by calling the Bobcat Ticket Office at 406-994-CATS (2287). Information can also be found online here.
