MANHATTAN, Kan. – With season tickets for the 2012 football season being available for 24-plus hours, K-State fans stepped up in record fashion by purchasing an all-time first-day high of over 2,500 tickets on Monday, department officials have announced.

Fans interested in season tickets are encouraged to contact the ticket office before the priority deadline of April 27. 

In addition to the season tickets sold on Monday fans purchased 2,100 view level Tradition tickets in December, moving the total number of season ticket purchases over the last three months to 4,600 seats. Based on anticipated renewals and new orders placed on Monday, North End Zone season tickets are sold out for new orders. Fans renewing in the North End Zone should place their renewal order prior to the April 27 deadline to retain their seats and take advantage of End Zone Fun Zone 4-pack discounted pricing.

“Time after time, our fans have proven their passion and support of our student-athletes,” said Athletics Director John Currie. “Our staff has done a terrific job in finding pricing levels and seating options suitable for all fans, and we are one step closer to having a sold-out Bill Snyder Family Stadium for 2012.”

Season tickets remain available in sideline and south end zone seating of the lower bowl for $320 each.  Fans who order online before the early bird deadline of March 30 will receive a $10 discount from the normal $25 season processing fee. The deadline for priority seating and season ticket renewals is Friday, April 27. All seat location requests, including new season ticket location assignments, will be processed in K-State Athletics priority point order in early May.

The Wildcats will be led by All-America candidates Collin Klein (QB) and Arthur Brown (LB), while 2011 Walter Camp All-Americans Nigel Malone (DB) and Tyler Lockett (KR/WR) also return.
