First-Day Sales Record Broken for Fourth-Straight Year

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- For the fourth-consecutive season, K-State fans have stepped up by setting another first-day sales record after 2015 football tickets went on sale Monday morning, department officials announced. K-State fans purchased 4,958 tickets on Monday, eclipsing last year's first-day record of 4,330, while 1,623 tickets ordered on Monday were from new requests.

Fans interested in purchasing season tickets are encouraged to contact the K-State Athletics Ticket Office before the priority deadline of April 24. Fans can purchase view level or north end zone tickets at $225 each, while sideline and south end zone seating in the lower bowl is priced at $330 each. A Young Alumni ticket package is also available at only $205 for K-Staters who received their undergraduate degree since December 2010, while faculty and staff are eligible to purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $264 each.

"A fourth-straight record first day in sales is further evidence that the K-State Nation is excited for another football season while also showcasing its national reputation for supporting the Wildcats," Athletics Director John Currie said. "With their continued loyalty, K-State fans are well on their way to filling Bill Snyder Family Stadium beyond capacity for seven more home games and extending our home sellout streak to 27 games."

All seating location assignments for new season ticket requests, in addition to upgrades or increases in ticket quantity for existing season ticket holders, will be based on availability and determined through the online reservation service between May 11 and June 5. The K-State Athletics Ticket Office will e-mail log-in information and appointment times, determined in order of athletic department priority points, to all new and renewed season ticket holders following the priority deadline of April 24. Fans whose orders are not able to be accommodated during the assignment process will receive a full refund and be placed on the 2016 season ticket waiting list, which also provides early access to single-game tickets and visitor returns throughout the 2015 season.

K-State, which returns 12 starters from last season and a total of seven players that earned All-Big 12 accolades in 2014, opens spring practice April 1. The culmination of spring practices occurs on Saturday, April 25, as K-State Nation descends upon Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kansas, for the 2015 Purple/White Spring Game at 3 p.m. The Wildcats are able to take advantage of playing in the award-winning facility due to fan and player safety concerns at Bill Snyder Family Stadium as construction continues on the new Vanier Football Complex.

Tickets to the game at Sporting Park are also available now through the K-State Athletics Ticket Office, but fans are encouraged to act fast as fewer than 4,000 tickets remain and are expected to sell quickly. K-State and Sporting Kansas City will open a limited number of standing-room only tickets once all public seats have been sold.
