Spring game tickets go on sale on Wednesday, February 6th. Nebraska is now taking applications for the new seats that are opening up thanks to the East Stadium expansion project that opens this fall.
The Nebraska Ticket Office announced today that tickets to the 2013 Spring Game will be going on sale on Wednesday February 6th at 8 am. Tickets can be bought in person at the ticket office in the parking garage across from Memorial Stadium, by phone at 1-800-8BI-GRED, or online at huskers.com. Tickets will be $10, except for a limited number of $15 club seat tickets.
If you returned your tickets to the cancelled 2012 spring game to the University for a credit, you will receive an e-mail before the 6th to let you know how to use your credit.
With the exception of the east stadium addition, all seating areas in Memorial Stadium will be open for the spring game.
Nebraska also announced ticket prices for 2013. Single game tickets will be $60 for the Wyoming, Southern Miss, and South Dakota State games. The B1G conference games against Illinois, Northwestern, Michigan State, and Iowa, as well as the UCLA game, will be $75 each. If you are a season ticketholder, the per-game price will remain the same at $56, but the total will increase to $448 because of the eight home games in 2013.
Student season tickets will be $184 ($23 per game) and UNL Faculty and Staff will pay $424 ($53 per game) in 2013.
Don't have season tickets? This is your opportunity! 3,000 new seats will be available starting this fall. The process starts by adding your name to the 2013 Husker Football Ticket Wait List. You'll need to indicate whether you are offering to donate to improve your chances of being selected for tickets. The University is anticipating that it will take a minimum $150 donation to get tickets, though that's not a guarantee. If enough people pledge more than $150 per ticket to fill the stadium, then people who pledge less will not receive tickets. Likewise, if not enough people pledge to fill the new seats, some tickets may be available this season without a donation.
I would imagine that most, but not all, new ticketholders will be in the new stadium. Some people may choose to relocate their seats to the new addition, and so seats may open up in other areas of the stadium. I would expect that season ticketholders and current donors will have the first opportunity to upgrade their seating before the general public receives that option.
Each request requires a $50 per seat deposit. If you are not offered season tickets, your deposit will be refunded. If you are offered season tickets, your deposit will apply to the tickets. If you are offered tickets but decline the seats you are offered, the deposit will not be refunded.
The deadline for applying for season tickets is May 1, 2013.
