Season Tickets

Hey, I know you probably know this by now, but student season tickets will be on sale on August 22nd via GoDucks.com for $200. We received this email from the ASUO a little while ago:

Dear Students,

The Athletic Department will be releasing student season tickets on Sunday, August 22nd. Students should be on the look out for an email to their student accounts from goducks.com for additional details and instructions. Season tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. They will be $200. Any questions can be addressed to the Athletic Department at tickets@uoregon.edu.

Thank you

The Flan’s article in the Ol’ Dirty quoted the price at “around $300” in the print version [she has since changed the online version to say $200].

I’ve heard that in order to make up the 11% ($160,000) cost difference from the reduction of the contract with the Athletic Department the ASUO will have to sell close to the full amount of available season tickets to break even. I guess I’m not sure if students will pay out of pocket for football games or take their chances with the lottery of online tickets. I’m sure some students will, but we’ll see if it’ll be enough.

    Today’s Oregonian article has some interesting analysis on college football ticket prices. http://blog.oregonlive.com/pac10/2010/08/college_football_tickets_pac-1.html

    Oregon leads the Pac Ten in ticket prices for “high demand games” at $86. Hopefully this can be a convincing enough selling point to get 4.4% of the student body to shell out $33 bucks a game.

    I know I critiqued the ACFC plan during the election, but I still think it will be pretty popular. I was going to give a full-throated backing of it until I went back and read the article and saw that there were 1000 of the tickets. I don’t know if ~18% of students who attend games value the tickets at $30 out of their pocket, but I think they’ll at least be within shouting distance.
