Rockets break school record for season ticketsWritten by Zach Davis | | firstname.lastname@example.org
University of Toledo Deputy Athletic Director Mike Karabin announced today that the UT football program has broken the school record for season ticket sales.
As of Aug. 29, Toledo has sold approximately 11,050 season tickets, breaking the record set last season of 11,005.
Season tickets were bolstered by the “Ultimate Fan Plan” packages, which accounted for 4,500 packages (500 still remaining). The Ultimate Fan Plan is $59 for a ticket to every home game and includes $24 in concession vouchers, $30 towards a general admission season parking pass and a $20 Rocket Shop gift card.
“We expect to keep selling season tickets right up until our second game against Boise State on Sept. 16,” said Karabin. “Our final season ticket number could end up being substantially higher than 11,000.”
Toledo opens the season at the Glass Bowl on Sept. 1 against New Hampshire at 7 p.m. The Rockets will host No. 5 Boise State on Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. in a nationally-televised game on ESPN or ESPN 2.
