Texas Tech Surpasses Season Ticket Record

Texas Tech football is inching closer to its first sellout of Jones AT&T Stadium through season ticket sales.

With just under five months to go until the start of the college football season, Texas Tech has announced that it has surpassed its school record for season ticket sales.

The anticipation of a Red Raider Football season has never been greater as 34,100 season tickets have been sold for 2014, surpassing the previous school record of 32,227 sold in 2010. Additionally, Texas Tech has sold 3,000 more season tickets than in 2013.

The record ticket sales this early in the year likely mean that individual game tickets will not be made available for purchase – another first in the history of the program. Texas Tech only needs to sell 4,500 season tickets in order to sell out Jones AT&T Stadium for the entire season.

"We are excited about the opportunity to sell out Jones AT&T Stadium on a season ticket basis for the first time in school history," Kirby Hocutt, Director of Athletics said. "Our passionate fan base is the source of great pride for this university and we are grateful for your continued support of the Red Raiders."

Season ticket holders from 2013 renewed at 90 percent this year, up from last year's renewal percentage of 79 percent. In all, a total of 5,849 new season tickets have been purchased since going on sale to the public on Feb. 5.

Texas Tech will play arguably its most attractive home schedule ever as the Red Raiders host Central Arkansas, Arkansas, West Virginia, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas at Jones AT&T Stadium.
