Over 4,500 BYU Football Tickets Sold on First Day

The anticipation and excitement building for the BYU football season opener in Provo against Georgia Tech on August 28 resulted in 4,500 individual game tickets sold on the first day they were available to the general public.

"It was one of the biggest days we've had in a long time," according to BYU ticket manager David Miles. "We have a lot of good seats still available for the Georgia Tech game. But, they are going fast, so I would encourage people to get their tickets now."

With the season set to begin in about three weeks, season-ticket sales are going well, with more than 27,600 season tickets have been sold so far, Miles said.

Miles added good season tickets are still available. Packages start at $90 for end zone seating and $156 for sideline seats. Fans who contribute to the Cougar Club at the Legacy level may also purchase west-side chair seats for only $250.

In addition to season ticket packages, Cougar fans can purchase individual game tickets by contacting the Marriott Center ticket office at (801) 378-BYU1 or (800) 322-BYU1.

BYU athletics director Val Hale said the athletics department has sold nearly 80 percent of the new east-side club seats. There are apparently good seats still available in this section.

Fans who contribute a minimum $1,000 to the Cougar Club qualify to purchase season tickets in section 34, located between the 40-yard lines on the east side of Edwards Stadium. Season-ticket holders in this section will also receive special amenities, including priority parking, a meal and game program.

Others who contribute a minimum of $500 to the Cougar Club qualify to purchase season tickets in sections 33B and 35A, located between the North and South 30- and 40-yard lines along the east-side of the stadium. These ticket holders also receive special amenities, including priority parking and a game program.

Single-event tickets for all games, except Utah on November 22, begin at $17 for end zone seating and $30 for seats on the sidelines. Tickets for the Utah game are available for $20 in the end zone and $35 for sidelines.

Students, meanwhile, can purchase individual-game tickets for only $14. The Utah game will cost students $17 for end zone seating.

The ticket office manager said BYU students who ordered All-Sport passes can pick them up, along with season tickets, at the Marriott Center today (Wednesday, August 6.) All-Sport passes are $85 and include rotating, reserved seats for all six home games.

"We've pre-sold about 3,300 All-Sport cards," Miles said. "Students who have pre-ordered can pick those up at the ticket office beginning Wednesday. Students who haven't pre-ordered can still come to the ticket office and purchase their All-Sport card. When you get your card, you'll also get your season tickets in hand."
