Football Season Ticket Sales Reach 13-Year High
Sept. 23, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Thanks in large part to a dramatic increase in student attendance, Indiana University football has sold over 20,000 season tickets for the first time in 13 years, Indiana Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Fred Glass announced Thursday. IU Athletics has sold 21,125 season tickets for the 2010 season, which is the highest number of season ticket holders since 1997, when IU sold 25,654 season tickets. This year also marks the first year since 1997 that Indiana has sold more than 7,000 student season tickets.
"I think people are very excited about the direction of our football program and really seem to enjoy the game-day experience at Memorial Stadium," Glass said. "I think that is reflected in the surge of season ticket sales and the outstanding response by our student body."
Season tickets for 2010 are still available with the cost prorated to not include the Sept. 2 game against Towson. Men's basketball student season tickets are also on sale, but are selling fast. To not miss out on sold out games, students are encouraged to buy their football and men's basketball season tickets as soon as possible.
Both football and men's basketball student season tickets may be ordered at `The Lecture' featuring men's basketball coach Tom Crean on Thursday, Sept. 23, at the IU Auditorium. For more information or to purchase football and basketball season tickets visit IUHoosiers.com or call 866-IUSPORTS.
