Expedia.com is now selling tickets to sporting events, concerts and theater through a partnership with resale marketplace TicketNetwork. 

Tickets can be searched by event type, destination, venue, team or performer, nearby events or popular events nationwide.

Considering travelers' desire to have unique experiences in destinations and a trend of building trips around events, "adding event tickets to our product offering makes all the sense in the world," said Jen O'Twomney, Expedia Local Expert vice president.

Event Tickets' launch is accompanied by the Triple Threat Sweepstakes https://www.expedia.com/event-tickets/college-championship-sweepstakes, running through March 9.

One winner will get a trip to the college men's basketball championship game in San Antonio, Texas, on April 2, including roundtrip economy airfare, two game tickets and a stay at the Menger Hotel. The winner of the three-day, two-night trip for two will also receive $2,800.
