Coming off a decline in attendance and a few rough seasons in Knoxville, the University of Tennessee is offering a limited selection of “no-donation” season tickets for the 2013 season.
As reported by GoVolsXtra:
Jimmy Stanton, associate athletic director for communications, said the no-donation clause was a departure from past seasons.
“We saw an opportunity to utilize some inventory in the upper deck of the south end zone to create an even more affordable season-ticket option,” Stanton said. “A $300 season ticket with no donation requirement provides fans the opportunity to see all Tennessee football home games next year at a great price.”
Stanton said earlier this week UT had sold approximately one third of the 1,500 no-donation tickets.
The arrival of new coach Butch Jones comes at a good time for UT’s season-ticket campaign.
The vast majority of available tickets cost $370 or $391 (chairback), with donations to the Tennessee Fund ranging from as little as $50 to $2,500 per seat.
