Season Ticket Information  |  Season Ticket Catalog [PDF]  |  Non-Conference Schedule Announced

MANHATTAN, Kan. – New ticket options will be available for Kansas State men’s basketball in 2016-17 when season tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 8, officials announced today.

Fans will be provided more cost-savings and flexibility through a variety of available ticket plans to support an experienced Wildcat squad competing at Bramlage Coliseum this season. Included in the ticket packages is the new Faithful Season Ticket as well as the new Big Game and Pick 5 Mini-Plans. Other popular options – the Wildcat 4-Pack and Victory Ticket Plans – also return in 2016-17.

Fans can purchase a season ticket for just $50 in the general admission (Sections 24-25) section with the new Faithful Season Ticket, but there’s a catch with the newest and most economical option – if the Wildcats lose at any point at Bramlage Coliseum, where they boast a winning percentage of better than 75 percent all-time, the ticket becomes inactive and the ticket holder has the option to purchase an additional Faithful Ticket for $50 for any remaining games.

With the new mini-plans, fans can tailor their trips to see the Wildcats around their busy schedules. A reserved ticket for all weekend games as well as the Kansas game (if not on a weekend) is available for $250 with the Big Game Plan, while fans can purchase five vouchers that can be redeemed for five tickets of their choice (excluding Kansas) for $50 with the Pick 5 Plan. Last season, K-State played eight weekend games, including tilts with Big 12 foes Iowa State, Oklahoma and West Virginia.
Fans purchasing their tickets by phone or online on the opening day of sales on June 8 will save $10 on each season ticket purchased the first day. Early-bird and priority deadlines are set for Friday, June 24 and Friday, July 15, respectively. Four and five-month credit card plans are also available for all season ticket purchases.

With the Wildcat 4-Pack, fans can purchase four season tickets in the bench, general admission and/or Cat Cushion sections (10-17 and 26-27, 1-2) at $900, $1,100 or $1,200, depending on location, for a savings up to $95 per ticket. The Victory Ticket Plan includes all non-conference and all-midweek conference games (excluding Big Monday and the Kansas games) in general admission seating (Sections 24-25) for $109.

Young Alumni packages are available for all K-State undergraduate degree recipients in the past five years (December 2011 to May 2016). These ticket packages are $200 and just $100 for those with Young Alumni football season tickets with an option to utilize the 5-month payment plan for $20 per month. Young Alumni can purchase up to two season tickets at the discounted rate. 

An Ahearn Fund contribution is required for all premium, chairback and cushioned seating. Specific required giving levels by section are listed at www.AhearnFund.com.

Season tickets will be available online at www.kstatesports.com/tickets starting Wednesday, June 8. Current season-ticket holders should receive their renewal information in the mail the week of June 6 and have until Friday, July 15 to arrange payment and retain their seats for the 2016-17 season. New ticket holders are also encouraged to purchase season tickets prior to the July 15 deadline. New full season-ticket requests will be handled utilizing the K-State Priority Points system which rewards fans for their history of season ticket purchases and contributions to the Ahearn Fund. All requests are based on seat availability and specific locations are not guaranteed.

The Ticket Office will also utilize an online seat selection process, similar to football season tickets, with all season ticket holders who have purchased by July 15 receiving an appointment time to add, relocate or select new ticket locations.  

Like last season, all season ticket holders will receive concessions discounts including $1 off all hot dogs, popcorn, pretzels and large souvenir fountain drinks at any of the main concession stands. 

Fans who purchase season tickets prior to June 24 early-bird deadline will get two entries in a prize drawing that includes two courtside seats for the Wildcat Classic on Dec. 10 at the Sprint Center, a loge box party in Bramlage Coliseum, a night for you and your friends to play a pickup game in Bramlage Coliseum and a 60-second shopping spree at the K-State Super Store.

Early-bird renewals will also receive a $10 discount off the season processing fee when ordering online, an additional $15 savings off the fee when paying in full online by e-check and a five-month credit card payment option. Fans will also receive a code (one-time only use) for 20 percent off at the K-State Online Team Store.

In addition to the home schedule, season ticket holders and Ahearn Fund members will have the first opportunity to pre-order tickets for the Wildcat Classic at the Sprint Center against Washington State on Saturday, Dec. 10.

Tickets are priced at $150 for courtside, $50 for lower-level sides, $30 for lower-level ends and corners, $20 for upper-level sides and $10 for upper-level ends. Season ticket holders who order tickets by Sept. 1 can receive lower-level side tickets for $40, lower-level ends and corners for $20 and upper-level sides for $15. 

K-State will play at least 18 games in Bramlage Coliseum in 2016-17 with the season opener set for Friday, Nov. 11 against Western Illinois. The Wildcats also host non-conference tilts with Gardner-Webb, Green Bay, Hampton, Omaha and Robert Morris. In addition, the squad will again host nine Big 12 foes, including Final Four participant Oklahoma and other NCAA Tournament teams Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Texas, Texas Tech and West Virginia.

The Wildcats will return a veteran roster in 2016-17 with nine returning lettermen and six players returning with starting experience, highlighted by All-Big 12 Third Team selection Wesley Iwundu and All-Newcomer honorees Barry Brown and Dean Wade. Overall, the squad returns five of their top six scorers from last season, along with nearly 70 percent of their rebounding, assist, steal and minute totals. Iwundu (11.9 ppg., 4.5 rpg.) is the team’s top returner in scoring, assists and steals, while rising senior D.J. Johnson (9.3 ppg., 5.2 rpg.) is the leader among three returning players (along with Iwundu and Wade) who averaged better than 4 rebounds per contest a season ago.

Fans can purchase season tickets in a variety of ways, including toll free at (800) 221.CATS (2287), online at www.kstatesports.com/tickets and in-person at the Athletics Ticket Office located in Bramlage Coliseum.
