2011 Student Football Ticket Information Released
Even though the warm temperatures (and thunderstorms) of summer have only just arrived in Happy Valley, Penn State students are already one step closer to football season.
Last night via email, Penn State Athletics released student football ticket information for the upcoming season, which is now posted on Student Central.
Students can purchase season tickets the week of June 20-24, beginning with seniors on the 20th and finishing with grad students on the 24th. Season tickets will cost $218, or around $31 per game over seven games. Also released were the dates and times (7 a.m., as usual) for away game ticket sales.
There were a fair amount of changes to the process this year, which include:
- No pre-registration
- No class designation for seating = ALL student seats will be first come, first serve
- New seating chart (remember, we’re moving to EA-WA) for the student section (which can be found here)
- No guest tickets will be sold for the Alabama or Nebraska games
- Student tickets can be resold for as low as $10 (and, like last year, for as high as $60)
As usual, students can purchase a Whiteout t-shirt along with their football tickets, though I strongly urge you to also purchase a Paternoville t-shirt or sweatshirt (which will be on sale beginning this summer with proceeds going to Uplifting Athletes) for the upcoming season. Students can also purchase men’s basketball season tickets at this time.
More information on how to buy, sell, and forward tickets, as well as how to create a group, will be posted on Student Central on June 3rd.
