Cancun Challenge tournament ticket packages are now available for fans not purchasing a fan package or those staying at a different resort during the event. To purchase tickets or fan travel packages, which include game admission with priority seating for all games, please contact Sarah Sullivan at (970) 672-0533 or sarah@triplecrownsports.com.



The all-tournament pass provides general admission entry to all eight men’s basketball games played in Mexico. Individual session passes are also available for fans just wanting Mayan Division or Riviera Division games (contact Sarah Sullivan for pricing details). Fans not staying at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya will be charged a game concession fee of $20 per day. The fee is in addition to the tournament pass and is assessed by the resort due to its all-inclusive nature. It gives fans access to unlimited food and drink (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) at the concession stand in the arena during games. An all-inclusive day pass is available for purchase providing fans access to the concession stand, plus all amenities, restaurants, and bars at the Hard Rock Hotel. All-inclusive day passes are $94 per day.



The tournament features eight men’s Division I college basketball teams and includes eight games played in the United States, and eight games played in Mexico at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya (previously the Aventura Spa Palace Resort). Old Dominion, Saint Louis, West Virginia and Wisconsin headline the Riviera Division; Bowling Green State, Georgia Southern, Oral Roberts, and Presbyterian will play in the Mayan Division. All four games of the Riviera Division will be nationally televised LIVE in HD from the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya on CBS Sports Network. The Mayan Division games will be webcast live on CBSsports.com, ULive.



The Cancun Challenge is regarded as one of the most unique preseason men’s college basketball tournaments. Teams stay at the Aventura Palace and enjoy all the amenities the resort has to offer. A ballroom is converted into an arena, and fans who attend the event get an up-close perspective of their team while enjoying an all-inclusive setting. Previous champions include Vanderbilt (2008), Kentucky (2009), Missouri (2010), Illinois (2011) and Wichita State (2012).
