Texas Tech Announces Football Season Ticket Plan

Posted:

LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech unveiled its season ticket plan for the 2009 football season Thursday afternoon, announcing changes that will increase membership and visibility of the Red Raider Scholarship Fund (RRSF), while enhancing scholarship opportunities for Texas Tech student-athletes.

Contribution to the Red Raider Scholarship Fund is required in over 77 percent of Jones AT&T Stadium for the upcoming season as a means to secure the best possible seating for donors to Texas Tech Athletics, while supporting student-athlete scholarships for all 17 intercollegiate programs. The minimum donation to the Red Raider Scholarship Fund is based on the number of season tickets purchased as well as seat location. The minimum donation allows the purchase of up to four tickets. The annual Red Raider Scholarship Fund donation provides Red Raider Club benefits across all sports where donor-based seating and parking minimums are in place.

"We are coming off of one of the greatest seasons in school history and our fans were a major contributor to that success," Gerald Myers, Texas Tech Director of Athletics, said. "We sold a record number of season tickets last season and experienced a growth in Red Raider Club memberships. We are asking our fans to do it again and make 2009 another special season."

In 2003, Texas Tech was the last school in the Big 12 Conference to install donor-based seating, which has enabled the athletics program to maintain a consistent level of financial standing among its conference peers through the support of athletic scholarships.

In 2007-08 the Red Raider Scholarship Fund raised $3.4 million dollars to help offset $6.4 million in scholarships. The difference of $3 million came from other athletic revenue sources.

  "To compete in the Big 12 Conference, we need to fully fund scholarships for our student-athletes, which will open up additional revenues for other operating expenses," Uryasz added. "The key to our continued success on and off the playing field is the growth of the Red Raider Scholarship Fund."

Sections added to the donor-based seating plan include 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 102, 103, 107, 108, 118 and 120. Seats in those sections will require a minimum donation to the Red Raider Scholarship Fund of either $100 or $150 per account.

Donation requirements to the Red Raider Scholarship Fund range from $100 to $350, depending on seat location. Season ticket prices range from $225 to $385, representing five distinct levels. The top three seating areas require an annual seat license.

Renewal applications for current season ticket holders will be emailed today. For those making their first online renewal payment by Jan. 30, 10 priority points will be added to their account if they are currently a Red Raider Club member or their seats are located in a new donor-based seating area. In addition, fans renewing online will be entered to win other great prizes. Hard copy invoices will be mailed Feb. 2 with the deadline for the first one-quarter or full payment on Feb. 23 and the second-quarter or full payment due March 23. Seat upgrades for Red Raider Club members are scheduled April 9-16. Current non-RRC season ticket holders will have the opportunity to upgrade seats April 17.
