MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State volleyball season tickets are on sale now, and the deadline for renewals is approaching. Fans who purchased season tickets for the 2010 season have until Friday to renew for the 2011 season to see all the exciting action in Ahearn Field House. After the deadline has past, season ticket holders who have not renewed may still purchase season tickets but will not have priority for reserved seating utilizing the K-State Athletics priority point system for seat assignments. New season ticket holders are encouraged to purchase early as well.

A variety of pricing and seating options are available through the K-State Ticket Office to help keep K-State among the leaders in national attendance after ranking 18th in 2010. Each season ticket plan includes a ticket for all 13 exciting home matches.

Chairback tickets are available exclusively to Ahearn Fund members for only $85 per seat. Cat Cushion reserved balcony seats are $65 each and general admission balcony seats are $50 per season ticket. A $10 discount is available for youth, senior citizens, faculty/staff and military for Cat Cushion and general admission tickets.

Fans may join the Ahearn Fund for as little as $50 by calling 888-232-9074. Cat Cushion Reserved seats are available in the south and west balconies for $65 and a general admission season ticket is only $50. A general admission youth, senior citizen or faculty/staff season ticket is discounted at $40 as well. K-State is again offering a Wildcat 4 Pack to fans for just $120. The Wildcat 4 Pack includes four general admission season tickets and comes to a cost of less than $3 a game.

“We’re looking forward to the season and the potential that our team possesses,” said K-State volleyball coach Suzie Fritz. “The addition of chairback seating and Ahearn improvements last season, along with our continued fan and community support, have made Ahearn Field House one of the best volleyball atmospheres in the nation. Our fans make Ahearn a great place to play.”

Tickets are available by calling the ticket office at 800-221-CATS, online at kstatesports.com or in person at the Bramlage Coliseum Ticket Office between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Season ticket holders will receive a number of additional benefits; including an invitation to an exclusive fan appreciation day with the coaching staff and players, as well as the opportunity to redeem unused season tickets for general admission tickets to future matches.

K-State volleyball opens its home schedule on August 30 against Creighton. The Bluejays will be one of six teams that made the 2010 NCAA Tournament to play against the Wildcats in Ahearn Field House this fall. The Wildcats will again host the Varney’s Kansas State Invitational on September 2 and 3 playing host to NCAA Tournament team Georgia Southern, Idaho and BYU. The Wildcats will also face Drake for another nonconference opponent at home this season and take on the highly competitive Big 12 Conference. Last season, five Big 12 teams made the NCAA Tournament with four reaching the Regional Semifinals.
