Aug. 2, 2009

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas Football’s Perkins Restaurant Family Zone football season ticket packages are on the verge of selling out for the second consecutive season. At a price of only $450, Perkins Family Zone packages include two adult and two youth general admission tickets for all six home games at Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium. Fans had purchased some 2,000 packages by July 27, the earliest date that Family Zone tickets have reached that number. Less than 300 Family Zone packages remain.

Meanwhile, single-game tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, August 3 for all games except the games against Oklahoma and Nebraska. The only method of obtaining tickets to the Oklahoma and Nebraska games is to purchase a full-season or half-season ticket package. Reserved season tickets are $300. The Crimson Zone season ticket, a new package for 2009, is just $225. Two half-season packages—The “Rock” and “Chalk”—are available for $150. The Rock package includes tickets to Duke, Iowa State, and Oklahoma. The Chalk package includes tickets to Duke, Southern Mississippi, and Nebraska. Fans can purchase their season tickets online at www.kuathletics.com, by calling 800-34-HAWKS, or in-person at the Allen Fieldhouse Ticket Office.

Kansas Athletics has introduced a new 12-month Payment Plan Option that gives fans the opportunity to spread out their payments and pay on their own terms. Overall football season ticket sales had topped 35,000 by July 27, the earliest date KU football sales have reached that mark.

Coming off their second straight bowl appearance and third consecutive bowl victory, the 2009 Jayhawks will tackle a six-game home schedule at Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium that is one of KU’s best ever. It includes games against national powers Oklahoma and Nebraska, as well as non-conference games against Duke and Southern Mississippi.

The Jayhawks will return plenty of talent from this season’s Insight Bowl Champion team, including: Quarterback Todd Reesing, a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award (nation’s best quarterback), First-team All-Big 12 safety Darrell Stuckey, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe, an SI.com honorable mention All-American, and wide receiver Kerry Meier, a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award (nation’s best receiver).

Kansas has set season attendance records at Memorial Stadium each of the last four years. Last season the Jayhawks averaged 50,907 fans per game, an all-time high.
