Cyclones Top Ticket Mark

AMES, Iowa – For the second year in a row, Iowa State has sold more season football tickets than it has ever sold in the history of the program. The current total of 31,168 surpasses last year’s record of 30,728 and comes over five months prior to the Cyclones first football game on August 30th.

“We are excited to have already established a new football season ticket record more than five months prior to our season opener. Last year we did not reach 30,000 season football tickets until late in August,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “We are committed to selling as many football season tickets as possible and our staff looks forward to continuing to sell season tickets during the next five months. Increasing our number of football season ticket holders will help us build a stronger financial foundation for our future.”

Most impressive to Pollard, are the 3,500 new season ticket orders (either brand new sales or additional season tickets ordered by existing accounts). “Much like a coach adding new recruits to the roster,” Pollard said, “we are always trying to identify new Cyclone fans. It appears many new season ticket holders want to get in on the ground floor of the Gene Chizik era and we welcome them with open arms.”
