CINCINNATI - The University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics has announced that tickets to the upcoming home football games against Connecticut (11/7) and Illinois (11/27) are both SOLD OUT. The game set for Friday, November 13 against West Virginia was previously announced as a sellout, as was the last home game two weeks ago vs. Louisville.
"There is nothing like the environment of Nippert Stadium," head coach Brian Kelly said. "I am excited that once again our fans have answered the call to Come Early, Be Loud and Wear Black. Our season has gotten off to a great start, including wins in five road games. To be able to come home for three straight contests during the stretch run of the BIG EAST Championship chase will be a welcome sight for our team. We represent Cincinnati on and off the field and look forward to getting back out there this Saturday night against UConn and making our City proud."
Director of Athletics Mike Thomas echoed that excitement.
"With four sellout crowds this season the Cincinnati community has left no doubt that they are behind our student-athletes, coaches, and the University as a whole," Thomas said. "It's a great time to be a Bearcat and I look forward to seeing Nippert Stadium filled with excitement with three big games here in November."
In response to a record demand for season tickets, the University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics has begun taking $50 deposits for 2010 Bearcats football season tickets. The $50 deposits can be made online now, exclusively at www.CATSTIX.com.
Along with being guaranteed a 2010 season ticket, patrons who purchase the deposits will also be placed in the priority system for eligibility to purchase 2009 UC Bowl tickets for the upcoming postseason.
Current 2009 Season Ticket patrons do not need to purchase deposits as you are already first-rite of renewal on your 2010 season tickets as well as credits for 2009 bowl tickets.
The 2010 home schedule will feature seven-games, including a matchup with Oklahoma at Paul Brown Stadium. Six games are scheduled for Nippert Stadium, including BIG EAST matchups against South Florida, Rutgers, Syracuse, and Pittsburgh and non-league games against Indiana State and Miami (OH).
Game dates and kickoff times are yet to be determined. A full schedule will be announced in the Spring.
Ticket renewal forms for current season tickets holders will be mailed out in January 2010 along with a complete schedule of deadlines for season ticket deposits, ticket payments, UCATS pledges, and 2010 football seat improvement requests. The UC Spring Football Game, BEARCAT BOWL IV, is scheduled for Saturday, April 24, 2010 at Nippert Stadium and will be the grand finale of the annual UC Football Letterman's Weekend.
