NAU Reduces Football Ticket Prices, Re-Introduces Sports Pass
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Northern Arizona University has lowered season and single-game ticket prices for the 2012 football season—a move to reenergize Lumberjack pride and draw more fans to the remodeled Walkup Skydome.
"We have listened to the community in response to our ticketing policies and have made changes to our prices and options for both season and single-game tickets," said Lisa Campos, vice president for Intercollegiate Athletics. "We are excited about the upcoming season and hope the Flagstaff community will join us in the Walkup Skydome."
NAU introduced the 2012 football prices during the "Creating Lumberjack Pride" press conference today at the Skydome.
"Community support for Northern Arizona University is more important than ever to our success," said NAU President John Haeger. "Making our games more affordable is another way to increase that support."
Season ticket prices start as low as $120 for the new Family Pack, a general admission season package including two adult and two youth tickets for each game - which equals $6 per person per game. Additional youth tickets may be purchased for $30. Reserved season tickets are $100 for adults with a reduced rate of $90 for NAU faculty and staff. Youth (12 and younger) reserved season tickets are $65 for the five-game season.
Premium reserved season tickets are available for $110 with a membership in the Lumberjack Athletic Association. NAU students will continue to get free admission to games.
All season tickets holders who renew or purchase before the early "Louie" deadline, July 31, 2012, will receive a free ticket to the NAU-Arizona State football game for each season ticket purchased.
Individual game tickets will be available for sale Aug. 18. Reserved single-game tickets are just $20 for the three contests against Ft. Lewis, Southern Utah and Cal Poly, while single-game tickets for the Homecoming and Family Weekend games are $25. General admission single-game tickets are now $10, and the two priority weekend games are $15.
"We want our fans to be able to come to the Skydome and bring their families," said head football coach Jerome Souers. "Establishing the home field advantage will only add to the reputation of the building and the difficulty of playing at elevation for visiting teams. It makes the games more fun, too."
New season and single-game ticket prices for soccer, volleyball and men's and women's basketball will be announced later.
An NAU Sports Pass for 2012-13 also was announced, giving fans general admission to all soccer, volleyball, women's basketball and track and field home events for $50.
