Aug. 17, 2006

LAWRENCE, Kan. – A limited number of University of Kansas men’s basketball season tickets are available to members of KU’s Williams Educational Fund and those who would like to join, Kansas Athletics officials announced Thursday.

The available tickets come from an allotment that Kansas Athletics earmarked for faculty and staff, a limited number of which have gone unordered. Current members of the Williams Fund and individuals who join (for $100 or more) may purchase two 2006-07 season tickets.

Individuals can join the Williams Fund and order tickets (maximum of two per order) by logging on to and clicking on Buy Tickets. The $100 donation will automatically be charged to the credit card you specify.

Individuals who are already members of the Williams Fund and wish to purchase additional tickets (maximum of two per order) but do not wish to make an additional contribution can do so by calling the Kansas Athletics ticket office at 1-800-34-HAWKS.

“We are excited about the upcoming season,” said KU Athletics Director Lew Perkins, “and we are pleased to be able to make these tickets available to current and new Williams Fund members. “This is a great way for fans who previously were unable to purchase season tickets to KU men’s basketball games to watch an outstanding team and experience the terrific atmosphere of Allen Fieldhouse.”
