Update on Student Tickets
There have been quite a few rumors about student tickets out there but this is the latest I have heard on the ticket policy (right now it is unconfirmed):
- $99 for student tickets all games in the bleachers.
- NINE free games for students that don’t have tickets. These tickets will be in the yellow. By my math after taking out the break games this is most of the home games. I would assume a couple games like Duke, Michigan State, and maybe Ohio State are not included in the 9.
- 150 tickets per game given to student organizations (fraternities etc.). 100 of these tickets will be behind the band, 50 in the bleachers.
At this point I am all for anything that brings fans to Crisler and this seems like a good plan. The Maize Rage needs to make an extra effort to get the fans in the yellow seats down into the bleachers when they aren’t full.
One unrelated note, I also heard that there may be a new scoreboard for the 09-10 season (big one, not the scorers table).
The University of Michigan men’s and women’s basketball programs will host “Fan Night” on Friday (Nov. 7) at 7:15 p.m. at Crisler Arena. Both squads will be introduced, and men’s coach John Beilein, women’s coach Kevin Borseth and each program’s captains will address the fans in attendance.
The event is free of charge. Fans will enter Crisler Arena through either Gate A or E beginning at 6:45 p.m. All Wolverine fans in attendance will be directed to the blue seating on the east side of the arena for a Wolverine rally.
I believe there was something like this last year for the introduction of both John Beilein and Kevin Borseth. Attendance will probably be underwhelming but I still think its good to have events like this. Inflatable games, snow cones, cotton candy, and autographs sound like a great time for all the junior-Wolverines out there.
