Final Four

National Championship Game!

Monday, April 3, 2017 - 8:30 p.m. EDT (5:30 MST)


North Carolina - Gonzaga


University of Phoenix Stadium


Phoenix (Glendale), AZ

Closest Airport to University of Phoenix Stadium

Phoenix Sky Harbor Int’l Airport (PHX) – 20 miles / approximately 30 minutes

The only likely alternate to Phoenix is Tucson – 116 miles SE.  Phoenix - a hub for both American Airlines and Southwest Airlines has better air service and generally lower fares than Tucson.  However, if the lowest fares to Phoenix are sold out you may find a better fare to Tucson.  Depending on the fares you find to Tucson, you may consider an “open jaw” trip (fly into Phoenix and return from Tucson or vice versa).  Las Vegas?  It’s 285 miles (part 2-lane road – but since you're the neighborhood – maybe a Phoenix-Las Vegas “open jaw” trip will do?    Terry

Possible Alternate DEPARTURE points for Gonazga Fans & Spike the Bulldog

Driving distance from Gonzaga University to Phoenix is 1,390 miles / 21 hours.  (How many “bottles of beer on the wall” do you suppose you could sing on that trip?)

Phoenix does not offer much for alternate destinations – maybe Tucson but don’t count on it.  It looks like your best bet is to consider an alternate departure point.   

As of tonight (Sunday, March 26) way too many schedules come in at over $1,000.  Ticketing rules can make it even worse.  Not only are fares high but many of them do not permit a change without a change fee.  

Southwest Airlines fares DO NOT have a fee for changes which is a big advantage.  An example of an alternate city that may work ... March 31 to April 03 Missoula-Phoenix is $628 RT on Delta.  If you are saving $300 per person and there are two of you – you are looking at $600.00 - (I have no idea how many verses of “bottles of beer on the wall” the drive would take. 

Yes, it seems expensive – and maybe it is – but geez THE ZAGS ARE IN THE FINAL FOUR!!!    Terry

P.S.  Give www.justfly.com a shot - I did and got some good fares.


Possible Alternate DEPARTURE points for North Carolina fans & Rameses

At 2,147 miles / 32 hours – North Carolina wins the farthest distance contest.  Driving to Phoenix?  Better get started now! 

I checked fares for travel March 31, returning April 3.  Raleigh-Durham airport is the closest to North Carolina and today (Monday, March 27) there were still some good fares.  If fares between Raleigh-Durham are higher than you want, check Charlotte, Greensboro, Greenville/Spartanburg and even Richmond.  For a little longer drive, there always is Atlanta.  Try www.justfly.com where I found some great fares.  Either departure city you choose, plan to depart early in the day if possible.  A personal note ... in 1997 my Gophers were in the final four (again don't tell the NCAA) and so was North Carolina.  This was our first trip to the Final Four and North Carolina fans could not have been nicer to us Minnesota fans.  We all spoke of it for a long time.  Thanks Tar Heel fans - your kindness did not go unnoticed.   Terry
