Purdue men’s and women’s basketball 2010-11 season tickets will go on sale to the general public on Aug. 2.
Beginning Monday at 9 a.m., season tickets will be available online at purduesports.com, by calling (800) 49-SPORT or in person at the Purdue Athletic Ticket Office. Located on the ground floor of the Intercollegiate Athletic Facility, the Athletic Ticket Office is open for business from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET, Monday-Friday.
For men’s basketball, season tickets are available to the public for $394 for the upper arena, while Purdue faculty and staff may purchase season tickets in the upper arena for $315. Tickets for the lower arena will be renewed or filled by John Purdue Club members based on priority points.
Tickets are also available for the Chicago Invitational Challenge at a cost of $92 for an all-session lower pass and $62 for an all-session upper pass. Each ticket guarantees admission to all eight games at the Sears Centre Arena over the course of the weekend.
There will once again be several options for women’s basketball season tickets for the 2010-11 season. Reserved-seating tickets in the lower arena are $116 for adults and $52 for students (ages 3 through college). Upper arena general admission season tickets will be available at a cost of $80 for adults and $50 for students.
While the two preliminary-round games of the Preseason Women’s NIT that the Boilermakers will host are included on each season ticket, fans will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for the semifinals and final should Purdue also play host to those games. Adult tickets will cost $12 for both rounds, while student tickets will run for $5 apiece. Purchases will be refunded if the Boilermakers do not host the semifinal and final rounds.
The deadline for priority seating is Aug. 27 for both men’s and women’s basketball season-ticket orders. For men’s basketball, season-ticket allotment and any requested improvements in seating will be made based on availability and in accordance with the John Purdue Club priority point system.
Season tickets may be purchased after the priority seating deadline, but orders received after Aug. 27 will not be guaranteed requested seat allocations or improvements.
