Ticket update

A few of you have asked if the evident excitement about UW’s upcoming football season is paying off in increased ticket sales.
The answer is that while sales are up from a year ago, many fans also seem to still be in a wait-and-see mode.
Here are the non-student season ticket sales totals for each of the last four years for the end of July:
2010 — 43,650
2009 — 39,644
2008 — 43,167
2007 — 42,590
Obviously, up roughly 4,000 from a year ago, but that was the lowest point since the stadium was expanded in 1987 so it really had nowhere to go but up. More telling is that it’s not much different than 2007 and 2008, indicating that until UW starts winning big again, the 43,000 range may be about the base level for season ticket sales.
Still, every little bit helps, and the school also hopes that sales will pick up a little more as the season nears.
As for single-game tickets, the only one that is approaching a sellout is Nebraska. A school official says that at the moment, there are no single-game tickets available for that contest and that the only way to get them is by purchasing season tickets.
