MANHATTAN, Kan. – For the second time in six days K-State fans have sold out Bill Snyder Family Stadium as department officials announced today that all public tickets to the September 15 matchup with North Texas have been sold.
The feat marked the first time since 1999 that multiple games have been declared a sellout prior to the start of a season, and based on the limited number of tickets remaining for the KU, Oklahoma State and Texas, that number could continue to climb.
The sellout crowd will be the 10th at Bill Snyder Family Stadium since the 2009 season and mark the eighth time since the 1999 stadium expansion that multiple games will be at full capacity in the same season.
“Our fans continue to provide us forward momentum towards our goal of selling out all seven home games this season,” Athletics Director John Currie said. “We are closing in on several additional sellouts and also encourage our fans to reserve their seats now for the Miami game on September 8, which will be among the nation’s best matchups that day.”
Fans still have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the five additional home games and are encouraged to act now. A very limited number of seats remain for the KU, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Texas games, while great seats are still available for the highly-anticipated matchup with Miami on September 8.
To purchase tickets fans can visit the ticket office online at www.kstatesports.com, call the ticket office by phone at (800) 221-CATS, or purchase in person at the Bramlage Coliseum Ticket Office between 8:30 a.m., and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Fewer than 300 student combo passes remain available for the season. Students interested in purchasing the remaining tickets should do so as soon as possible through their iSIS account.
K-State opens the season September 1 against Missouri State. The sold-out contest will kick at 6:10 p.m. and will be broadcast live on K-StateHD.TV.
