The two semifinal games of the 2013 NCAA Division Women’s Basketball Bridgeport Regional, which will be held Saturday, Mar. 30 at the Webster Bank Arena, are officially sold out.

“Great news on the sellout of the NCAA Women's Basketball Regional on Saturday afternoon and the strong sales for Monday night," MAAC Commissioner Richard J. Ensor noted. “It seems reflective of the strong field of teams, favorable game times and the sales efforts of the Bridgeport local organizing committee, including the staffs of the Webster Bank Arena, Fairfield University and the MAAC.”

In addition, the building is near capacity for the regional final game on Monday, Apr. 1.  The 2013 NCAA Division Women’s Basketball Bridgeport Regional is co-hosted by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and Fairfield University.

“We are excited to have a full house at Webster Bank Arena on Saturday afternoon for the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship,” said Eugene P. Doris, Director of Athletics at Fairfield University.  “To have a sellout, 48 hours in advance of the games, is a tremendous display of the region’s support for college athletics and we are proud to partner with MAAC and Webster Bank on this prestigious event.”
