K-State football season tickets sold out

By The Mercury

For the first time in program history, all available public football season tickets have been sold, as department officials announced Monday that K-State fans have stepped up in record fashion for the Wildcats’ 2013 eight-game home schedule.

The Wildcats are coming off a Big 12 Championship season in 2012 that included a No. 1 BCS national ranking and a berth in the Fiesta Bowl. The athletic department also announced that the Aug. 30 season opener against North Dakota State and the Nov. 2 matchup with Iowa State are sold out, based on existing pre-orders from season ticket holders.

Some requests may not be filled, and the ticket office will assign seats in priority point order after season ticket assignments are completed.

Public season sales for 2013 are up by 2,100 tickets vs. 2012 and have reached an all-time high. The K-State Athletics Ticket Office will continue to work throughout the week on seat assignments for fans who have already ordered season tickets.  Student passes are also running ahead of last year’s same-date figure and remain on sale through iSIS. Also, fans can call the ticket office or go online to be placed on the 2014 football season ticket waitlist.

“The momentum of our football program, in addition to all 16 of our athletics teams, has created an unprecedented level of excitement as we prepare for the 2013-14 year,” K-State athletic director John Currie said in a release. “We appreciate the support of our grass-roots fans who help provide our student-athletes a world-class experience by filling Bill Snyder Family Stadium each week and look forward to opening the West Stadium Center and seeing the stands packed with purple this fall.”

Fans still have the opportunity to secure a seat in Bill Snyder Family Stadium on a game-by-game basis as single game tickets for the other six home games will go on sale Wednesday online at
