Texas A&M Increasing Football Season Tickets By $25; Raise To Help Pay For Coaching Staff
Published February 27, 2013
CUTTING BACK: Univ. of Hawaii AD Ben Jay said that the school "will not raise its football ticket prices this season and might lower some in an effort to win back disaffected followers." In Honolulu, Ferd Lewis notes the decision comes as Jay, "six weeks into the AD job, looks at ways to reverse a 26 percent drop in turnstile attendance since 2010." UH averaged "25,573 per game in 50,000-seat Aloha Stadium in 2012, the lowest turnstile figure since the 0-12 season of 1998." School officials have said that football ticket prices "dropped approximately $1.2 million from 2011" (HONOLULU STAR-ADVERTISER, 2/27).
