MANHATTAN, Kan. – Following a season that included a football bowl berth and appearances in the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, excitement is building toward the upcoming year as K-State Athletics and the Student Governing Association announced today that student athletics passes for the 2011-12 season are on sale.
In an effort to maintain one of the top student sections in the nation, prices will remain unchanged from a year ago while a few notable procedural improvements are being instituted.
“The visible passion, loyalty and the number of students attending K-State athletic events is distinguishing this university as having one of the very best student-driven college football and basketball atmospheres in the entire country,” said Athletics Director John Currie. “We know how important it is to Wildcat student-athletes to have their fellow students in the stands, front and center, each time K-State teams take the field or court and we are appreciative of their unwavering support.”
Based on input from the Student Governing Association, a significant improvement in the student ticketing process is the change from print-at-home passes to a more convenient access card that will be programmed for admission to games corresponding with the type of pass purchased. Having all admissions loaded on one card will be more reliable and convenient than printing each pass individually and will remove any email issues that were present with the previous system.
Student Body President Danny Unruh says the improvements will benefit K-State students and will make attending events more simple and efficient.
“Yet again, collaboration between the Athletic Department and SGA leadership has created a new system that will make game attendance even easier for our students,” said Unruh. “Instead of worrying about printing a ticket, students can now focus on getting to the game and making Bill Snyder Family Stadium and Bramlage Coliseum the toughest and loudest places to play in the NCAA.”
Students wishing to purchase an ICAT combo can do so for $295. ICAT pass-holders receive seating in sections 24 and 25 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium for football home games and seating in sections 18 to 21 for home basketball games in Bramlage Coliseum. ICAT pass-holders also receive an official ICAT t-shirt and early entry for home basketball contests.
General Admission Combo passes are $235 with seating in sections 26, 27 and 28 at home football games and sections 22 to 25 for home men’s basketball contests. General Admission Football-only passes are also available for $150. The charge to replace a lost access card will be $50.
Students may order their passes on iSIS after enrolling for Fall 2011 classes and will be charged on their student accounts. To order, students can log into their account on iSIS at isis.k-state.edu. Click Self Service and then select Athletic Tickets under the Marketplace folder.
Student passes offer a considerable discount over general public season tickets. Students interested in purchasing a guaranteed ticket in a reserved section can do so by ordering tickets at the general public rate through the K-State Athletic ticket office.
