Today is an important day for college basketball fans; it’s most likely the deadline for your office or friends and family March Madness brackets. After you’ve scurried to hand them in, try your luck at snagging some tickets to the games. AT&T, the wireless sponsor of the NCAA has partnered up with Radio Shack to launch their interactive campaign, AT&T Ticket Chasers. Here’s the scoop on how it works:

  • Enter the contest at on your mobile device for the city you want to “chase” tickets in.
  • Once you’re signed up, log in from your phone on a chase day (your phone must have GPS and mapping enabled in your browser) to catch the Ticket Guy. The first ones to find them will grab tickets to attend a game in your city!
  • Each Ticket Guy will have 25 pairs of tickets and will be located in each of the nine cities hosting the NCAA regional tournament games. Those who don’t get tickets will have the chance to win two MVP passes to AT&T’s viewing parties to watch the games with some of basketball’s biggest names including Larry Bird, Dominique Wilkins and Clark Kellogg. These will also be in the nine host cities.
