LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Football season ticket sales are approaching record numbers for the second straight year and a limited number of season ticket packages for 2013 are now on sale.
With the deadline for renewal and relocation expired, season tickets are currently available in both the lower bowl and UPS Flight Deck at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. The 2013 season ticket package features admission to all seven home games this season which begins on Sunday, Sept. 1 versus Ohio.
"Our fans have stepped up once again and proved their loyalty and support for our football program," head coach Charlie Strong said. "I'm excited that our fans will provide a great home field advantage for this football team this season."
Lower bowl seats may be reserved for $336 at a discounted rate of only $287 if reserving four or more. UPS Flight Deck seats may be reserved for $168 or at a discounted rate of only $140 if reserving four or more.
"With the momentum of our football program and expanded ticket sales team, it is good to be around a 92% renewal rate eight weeks before kickoff, while adding thousands of new season ticket commitments thus far," said Brent Seebohm, associate athletic director. "Several hundred good seats are still available before we near capacity for years ahead, and our group outing tickets and students demand also remain popular."
