NORMAN, Okla. -- The price of Oklahoma men's basketball season tickets for OU students for the 2011-12 season has been reduced from $140 to $40, and the cost of single-game tickets has been cut to $5. That announcement was made by OU head coach Lon Kruger Thursday at noon in front of OU students at the Oklahoma Memorial Union food court.
The price reduction is the result of a men's and women's basketball student section title sponsorship by The Reserve on Stinson, in cooperation with Sooner Sports Properties. The Reserve on Stinson has also agreed to offer a number of additional benefits to student ticket holders, including a $100 prize at each men's and women's game, an iPad giveaway at one men's and women's game, and a night of Pizza Hut pizza at one men's and women's game.
"A loud and energetic student section is one of the most important ingredients to a team's success at home," said Kruger, "so important that we are making this significant change. We have been on campus talking to our students and we have heard them loud and clear that pricing is a challenge. We're grateful for the Reserve on Stinson's commitment to the basketball programs and we hope our students take advantage of this special opportunity to purchase a heavily reduced season ticket and make their presence known at games."
All students who already committed to purchase a season ticket at the previous $140 price will be charged $40 instead. A special event for those students will also be announced in the coming weeks. Additionally, those students will still be eligible for the rebate program if they attend 14 of the 16 home games.
"As our staff has been communicating to our fans since our arrival in April, this is 'our team,' said Kruger. "Our players have been working extremely hard, they're improving day by day and are anxious for everyone -- especially their fellow students -- to experience a fun season at the Lloyd Noble Center."
