For the first time ever, football season tickets sell out
For the first time ever, Stanford football season tickets have sold out with more than 33,000 tickets sold. But fear not, Cardinal fans, limited quantities of single-game tickets will go on sale Aug. 1 on GoStanford.com.
Turns out that the family and young alumni season ticket plans were the first to sell out. The number of tickets sold rises to 38,000 after factoring in the Stanford student section, the Red Zone. Coupled with a season ticket holder presale for individual game tickets, group ticket sales and required allotments for visiting schools, Stanford Stadium’s 50,000 seat capacity is filling fast.
What’s causing all the excitement? It could be that Stanford is the reigning Pac-12 champion. It could be that the Cardinal has posted an 18-1 mark at Stanford Stadium over the past three seasons. Maybe the thrill of a Rose Bowl victory still lingers. Or maybe it is that quarterback KEVIN HOGAN has been named to the Davey O’Brien Award watch list for the best quarterback in the nation. But he’s not the only one. Among the student athletes named to various national watch lists are defensive players BEN GARDNER, TRENT MURPHY, SHAYNE SKOV and ED REYNOLDS, offensive lineman DAVID YANKEY and tight end LUKE KAUMATULE.
Whatever the reason, Stanford’s season opens Sept. 7 with an 8 p.m. home game against a San Jose State team that won 11 games a year ago. If you don’t end up with a ticket, don’t worry. The game will be televised nationally on Pac-12 Networks.
