COLUMBIA – Prices for football season tickets for the 2013 season are the same as the 2012 season, according to the MU athletics department.
The home schedule includes five bowl teams from a year ago, with four of those winning 10 or more games, including Florida, South Carolina and Texas A&M (each went 11-2), while Arkansas State was 10-3 in 2012. Toledo went 9-4 a year ago as well. Texas A&M features the reigning Heisman Trophy winner in quarterback Johnny Manziel, and he will be the first defending Heisman winner to play on Faurot Field since Billy Sims of Oklahoma in 1979.
General public season ticket prices will remain at the 2012 rate of $379, as will student tickets ($240 for football/basketball combo pack, $160 for football-only).
Last season, when Missouri sold out its season ticket allotment for the first time ever, those two groups made up nearly 70 percent of season ticket purchases (32,701 of 46,786 total in 2012).
“We’re very pleased to hold our season ticket prices steady for the vast majority of our customers,” said Deputy Athletics Director Doug Gillin. “Football ticket revenue is such a vital component of our budget, yet we have to be sensitive to the challenges the economy has presented for so many people. Overall, it is very important to offer an exciting schedule at a reasonable price for our fans, and we feel we continue to do that here,” he said.
There are different seating plans available. Prices for other areas in 2013 include Tiger Zone, located in the south stands ($288), and the popular Family Fun Pass ($750), which includes five season tickets in a special section.
Faculty, staff and alumni from the previous three graduating classes will be $288 this season, which represents a slight increase from 2012 prices but is a 25 percent discount from the general public rate. Additionally, faculty and staff receive a special benefit of a 50 percent discount with the Tiger Scholarship Fund — meaning a Tiger Scholarship Fund donation of $100 is credited as $200.
Other section prices include $800 for Touchdown Terrace seating and $500 for Tiger Lounge and suites.
Current season ticket holders will receive ordering information in the mail in early March. Those interested in becoming new season ticket holders can get their names added to a request list in March.
