CINCINNATI - The official 2009 University of Cincinnati Football Ticket Playbook is now available on CATSTIX.com. The 2009 edition of the playbook features 27 pages of complete detailed 2009 UC football ticket and game day information.

The Bearcats faithful came out in great support in 2008 with UC setting an all-time record for season ticket sales. Cincinnati looks to continue that trend and go after a new ticket record in 2009. All fans are encouraged to read through the playbook and choose their best ticket plan. The playbook also provides important events dates, renewal deadlines, the 2009 football schedule and more.



Ticket renewal forms for current season tickets holders have been mailed with the deadline for season ticket deposits, ticket payments, UCATS pledges, and 2009 football seat improvement requests on April 25 -- the day of BEARCAT BOWL III, UC's annual Spring Football game. Seat improvement appointments will be made in May and will continue through June. All new season ticket holders will still be able to make a deposit toward 2009 season tickets.

Coming off the most successful season in the program's history fans will not want to miss another great season of Cincinnati football. Be "The Next Fan In" and secure your 2009 season tickets!

The Department of Athletics is offering all patrons the opportunity to purchase 2009 season tickets at the current price and lock in that price for the 2010 season. Tickets and new deposits can be made online at CATSTIX.com or by calling 1-877-CATS-Tix. The deposit allows fans to hold their spot in line and wait until they select their seats after May 11 to pay in full. The UC Athletics Ticket office is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. and is located in Richard E. Lindner Athletics Center.

Last year, season ticket holders saw many changes in UCATS football ticket pricing relating to the creation of a four-tier donation structure. The donation levels for Tiers 1-4 will remain the same in 2009 and will be enhanced by a fifth tier which requires a $50 donation to UCATS for seating in selected areas adjacent to existing UCATS reserved seating.

In 2009, there will be seven different ticket plans available providing Bearcats football fans the opportunity to see the best college football in the country for one of the best values in the city or across the nation. This season UC welcomes in one of its best slates of opponents ever to Nippert Stadium as it plays host to non-conference foes Illinois from the Big Ten, Fresno State from the WAC, and Southeast Missouri State along with exciting BIG EAST Conference action vs. West Virginia, Louisville, and Connecticut.

Donation levels to UCATS range from $50-50,000 depending on which section and plan fans choose, while ticket prices will range from $160 to $282 per seat.
