SOLD OUT: Advanced Student & Guest Season Tickets Exhausted 30 days Before Home Opener

Aug. 13, 2009

CINCINNATI - The new "Student Convenience Season Tickets" and "Student Guest Season Tickets" for the upcoming 2009 University of Cincinnati football season are sold out.

This is the first year UC students have had the opportunity to purchase one of 1,000 "Student Convenience Tickets," guaranteeing them a seat in the student section at every home football game this fall. Five hundred (500) student guest season tickets were also put on advance sale as part of this collaborative effort between UC Athletics and UC Student Government.

"The students are the backbone of the fantastic game day atmosphere that is Nippert Stadium," said Director of Athletics Mike Thomas. "This type of support from our students is yet another example of how the excitement for UC football continues to snowball as we head into the 2009 season. I am proud of the efforts of our marketing and fan development staff, who has taken this new product directly to our orientation groups, as well as our engaged student government for having the foresight to help push these new offerings to our students."

The new student ticket policies do not change the ability of students who chose not to purchase the convenience season tickets. All full-time, UC main campus students will have the same ability to get free tickets on a game-by-game basis released 10 days prior to each home football game, depending on availability.

"Over the last few years, Bearcats football has added a more spirited atmosphere for students," said Student Body President Tim Lolli. "Fall quarter is not just about coming back to campus and seeing your friends anymore, but about going to games with your friends. We are extremely excited to see the sold-out response of this ticket package. It proves that student enthusiasm is no longer around one game, but an entire season."
