JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Getting tickets to the Georgetown-Florida basketball game on a Naval carrier will be costly. The city of Jacksonville released ticket information Thursday, offering "sponsorship packages" starting at 1,000 for the unique event. The packages range up to 50,000. Part of the reason for the expense is the city is tying the Nov. 9 basketball game to a home game involving the Jacksonville Jaguars. The city's cheapest sponsorship package includes two tickets to the hoops game and six tickets to Jacksonville's game against the Indianapolis Colts the night before. Four of those football tickets will be donated to military personnel. The package also includes "VIP access to related events." The sponsorship packages go on sale Monday, and city officials expect them to be in high demand.
