OXFORD, MS (WLBT) - In order to attract new season ticket holders while continuing to make games affordable for returning ones, Ole Miss has lowered prices for football tickets in the south end zone and kept the same price point from last season for the sideline sections.
In addition, a general admission section for Ole Miss faculty and staff has been added in the northeast corner of the seating bowl at a new reduced price.
“Football season ticket holders are the lifeblood of our program,” said Ross Bjork, Vice Chancellor for Intercollegiate Athletics. “They are vital members of the Ole Miss family, and our players, coaches and staff can’t thank them enough for their passion. With the strengthening of his staff this offseason, Coach Luke is building a winning program, and the support of our season ticket holders is a cornerstone in our bright future.”
South end zone tickets (sections S1 through S11) have dropped to $299 per seat, while other sections remain at $400 each. Sideline seat locations will be based on Ole Miss Athletics Foundation priority seating contribution, while the south end zone does not require a donation.
The deadline for season ticket renewal will be March 31. Season ticket holders will begin receiving emails with account details as early as this week, and mailers will arrive in early February. In addition, season ticket holders will be notified of several new perks and benefits in appreciation of their commitment.
“In today’s sports climate, affordability and choice are paramount, and we want to ensure that our fans have more than one option to choose from when it comes to season tickets,” said Deputy Athletics Director Michael Thompson. “We evaluated data from primary and secondary ticket providers and worked to determine ways to make our prices more competitive and affordable for families in the area, especially with our five-month payment plans.”
Ole Miss faculty and staff will continue to have the opportunity to purchase reserved seats at 20 percent off the ticket price. However, there will also be a new general admission option in section N11 for $199.
If ticket inventory is available, flex passes will go on sale beginning in August.
