    Football Season Tickets at Your School? How does it work....

    ACU is moving to a new stadium this fall. We have radically changed our season ticketing policies. In the past when we played at the local 15,000 seat high school stadium there were no reserved seats, suites or club seats. Our new stadium will only seat 12,000 (9000 seats and 3,000 on the grass berm) and most seating is reserved. Most reserved seats will now require an annual contribution, plus the price of a ticket.

    I am curious to know how our ticketing policies compare with other Southland and FCS schools.....Here is a link to our seating chart, excluding Suites which have all been sold.

    Re: Football Season Tickets at Your School? How does it work....

    NDSU has attached booster dues to every season ticket for about 3 years now. The premium sideline seats have had hefty booster dues attached to them for many years (probably since the 80s).

    NDSU season tickets themselves are $250 for sideline seats and $190 for endzone seats but booster dues are anywhere from $25 to $2750 per seat. Here's the chart with the breakdown in prices: http://www.gobison.com/documents/201...17.pdf?id=3170

    Every season ticket is sold which amounts to about 12,500 I believe and there's 1000+ requests (not tickets but requests) on the waiting list. NDSU does still sell about 1500 tickets per game as single game tickets (every seat except for those in the student section is reserved) and they do allow athletic boosters who don't have season tickets to request 2 tickets for up to 4 games (8 total tickets) so for the prime games most every seat is gone before it truly hits the "general public".

    Maybe after we win a couple of National Championships and annually humiliate P5 teams, we can be you. Seriously, that's great! Your pricing makes our ticket prices look like a bargain.

    Do you know what the policies are for faculty/staff? Under our new policies, faculty receive one general admission ticket free. Dependents receive discounted tickets for about 20 bucks less than regular prices.

    I don't know for sure but I believe there's a block of about 500 seats that are held back for players, staff, and other university "functions". I thought I heard players can request up to 4 tickets for any given game but they may not be granted to them depending on demand and whether they've had previous requests granted. I'd guess university staff is similar but probably have a limit of 2 and are most likely lower on the totem pole than players and coaching staff.

    Our stadium is awful. But in the middle bleachers we have a few hundred special seats that are far more comfortable. You must be a Buc Club member to have access to purchase them and then price ranges.
    Yeah our stadium is a dump. But your mama has season tickets.

    Sam currently has basically three options. Chairback reserved season tickets that require an annual contribution. There is also reserved bench seating that does not require a contribution, as well as general admission.
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.

    UCA determines your seating by level of giving. The more you give the better the seating.

    I beg to differ. All the blue hairs and empty corporation seats are down low chairbacks. The fanbase sits second level and sits on their hands. The fanatics sit upper level and scream. But whatever.

    Faculty/staff tickets are free.

    Its never full but always sold out because our admins dont believe in advertising...ever. EVER.

    Holy crap, really?!? Western should do that. It's not like we ever sell out anyway. Our students get in free, but not the employees (which I am one of).

    Our season ticket situation is essentially...anyone can buy season tickets. For this season (only 4 home games) it's $65 for general public buying a reserved seat: http://goleathernecks.com/sports/201...620144851.aspx
    Faculty/Staff and Youth/Seniors are a bit cheaper, and the General Admission seats are also cheaper too.

    For me, it's actually better financially to just buy tickets at the gate, since it would cost me $45 for season tickets (as a staff member), but I get into Homecoming for free (as a member of the Homecoming Alumni Band), and the total of the remaining three games' tickets would be $35. With tickets being that cheap though, I can afford to swing going to Illinois State and Northern Iowa for a couple of our away games, at least.

    South Dakota State season tickets are, baseline, 170/seat. Depending on which section your seat is in dictates how much of a contribution you have to make to the Jackrabbit Club. (Min: $0 in the corners, Max: $250/seat on the 50 yard line west section)

    Club seats: $750/seat+$750/seat donation
