Reserved Football Seats Available For Texas Tech Students

Texas Tech Athletics is once again offering a special reserved football season ticket for currently enrolled Texas Tech students. The Athletics Department is offering 1,000 seats in the purple and blue sections for this special deal. Texas Tech students can purchase two (2) reserved season tickets per ID at a 20% discount over what is being offered to the general public. For as little as $120, Tech students can reserve a seat for all six home games, including Texas, for the 2012 football season. The Texas game alone is $95, if offered at all, on an individual game basis.

This offer is ideal for students who are married, want to tailgate, want to sit together as a group of friends, or who simply want a reserved seat for the entire season. Athletics is providing additional sections outside of the regular student section to offer this opportunity and students are only eligible to purchase in this area if they have paid their athletics fee.

Because of the generous pricing in these areas, these seats will be the first to go when tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 1. Students are encouraged to reserve their seats as early as possible beginning on May 1. In addition, students wishing to sit as a group should arrange to come in together to order their seats. This offer is good until the 1,000 seat limit is reached or the sections reach a sold-out status.

To receive a reminder when it’s time to order your tickets, be sure to follow the athletics department on twitter @techathletics, like the department on facebook at, and opt-in to receive text messages by texting “TTUSTUDENT” to 51234.

Texas Tech football delivers help, hope to central Texas.
