Student Ticket Plan for 2009-10 Announced

MANHATTAN, Kan. The Kansas State Athletics Department, working in conjunction with the Kansas State Student Governing Association, has announced its student ticket plan for the 2009-10 football and basketball seasons.

Two ticket options will be given to students in 2009-10 as a $330 ICAT combo plan, which includes added benefits, is available, or a new $245 general admission combo package will also be offered to give students a cheaper alternative. Students will only be offered combo tickets for the 2009-10 seasons and will not be permitted to purchase football or basketball tickets separately.

“SGA worked with the athletic department to develop the new pricing structure in order to avoid increasing student fees, which are the lowest in the Big 12 Conference,” said K-State Student Body President Lydia Peele. “The new ticket packages have two options for students a higher priced package with more benefits, and a lower priced package that is $20 less than last year’s price. The tradition of students having the best seats in the Big 12 continues here at K-State for both football and men's basketball."

Purchasing the ICAT combo plan will provide students numerous perks over those obtaining the general admission package. ICAT members will receive an ICAT T-Shirt, premier seating at both football and basketball home games, premier seating when purchasing tickets for postseason and away games as well as the Iowa State football game at Arrowhead, early entry for men’s basketball games, Ahearn Fund membership and an ICAT membership card to redeem extra benefits throughout the year.

"We believe that by reducing the general admission combo price, more students will have the opportunity to purchase tickets,” Peele added. “For the students who would like to receive more perks, such as an ICat section at men's basketball games and a student section for the games at Arrowhead and the Sprint Center, we are offering the higher priced option."

Students are encouraged to purchase their tickets on iSIS Marketplace immediately following their enrollment for the Fall 2009 semester. Enrollment begins March 23. Tickets will be added to the students’ university account and must be paid in full before receiving their tickets via e-mail in August.

Students who do not purchase tickets prior to the July 7 deadline will need to purchase tickets through the K-State Athletics Ticket Office. Each ticket package purchased through the ticket office will increase by $10 and include an additional $10 handling fee.
