MANHATTAN, Kan. – The fourth annual K-State Family Reunion is just one month away, and K-State remains on track to reach unprecedented marks in season and total ticket sales as seats to all seven of the Wildcats’ home football games at Bill Snyder Family Stadium this season remain in high demand.
A very limited number of seats remain for the Missouri State, North Texas, KU, Oklahoma State and Texas games, while great seats are still available for the highly-anticipated matchup with Miami on September 8 and the October 27 Homecoming game with Texas Tech.
Heading into the September 1 opener against Missouri State, which kicks at 6 p.m., K-State has surpassed last year’s public season ticket total by over 3,000 and expects to reach record levels prior to the start of the season.
And with continued support from one of the best student sections in the country, evidenced by the 1,200-plus additional student tickets sold this year compared to the same date a year ago, it is well within reach for Wildcat Nation to sell out all seven home games in a season for the first time in program history.
"We have been very pleased with the early returns on both season and single-game ticket sales,” said Athletics Director John Currie. “The opportunity exists for our fans to sell out all seven games this season for the first time in school history which is a testament to their support, passion and national reputation. The demand for a seat on Saturday at Bill Snyder Family has reached unprecedented levels, so act now to ensure that our stadium is packed with purple for each of our seven home games.”
While season ticket sales continue at a fast pace, single-game sales are also up by more than 50-percent from last year with several games nearly sold out and fans can act now to ensure they are a part of the action in 2012.
The Miami game will mark the fourth non-conference BCS opponent to enter Bill Snyder Family Stadium since 2002 as the Cats entertained UCLA in 2010, faced off against No. 8 Louisville in 2006 and No. 11 USC in 2002. Tickets to the matchup with the Hurricanes are available for $75 each, while Texas Tech tickets begin at just $20 each for Alumni Association members when purchased before August 31.
“Hosting the Hurricanes in Manhattan is another terrific opportunity to showcase our university, athletics program and community to the entire nation,” Currie added. “Great seats still remain for the September 8 matchup with Miami, along with our October 27 homecoming game against Texas Tech, so we encourage fans to act now and help fill the stadium in support of our student-athletes.”
For games with limited inventory, there is a potential opportunity for visiting team returns one month prior to the game. K-State Athletics will release details and on-sale dates and times if and when visiting team tickets are returned.
Students can still reserve their spot in Bill Snyder Family as fewer than 1,000 general admission combo passes for both football and basketball remain. Students interested in purchasing the remaining tickets should do so as soon as possible through their iSIS account.
Promotional days during the year include the 4th Annual K-State Family Reunion and post-game fireworks show for the Missouri State game; Harley Day for the Miami game; Band Day and University Family Day for the North Texas game; Homecoming for the Texas Tech game; Fort Riley Day and Cats 4 Cans for the Oklahoma State game; and, Senior Day and Fan Appreciation Day for the Texas game.
