The Michigan Athletic Department will announce a new policy Monday regarding the prices of student tickets, in which students demonstrating financial need are eligible for pricing discounts.
Students who meet the eligibility criteria for the Federal Pell Grant will be able to purchase season tickets for football, men’s basketball and hockey at a discounted rate. The standard prices for football, men’s basketball and hockey tickets in 2015-16 will be $175, $200 and $150, respectively, while the discounted prices are $100, $120 and $90.
Nice work by CSG prez Bobby Dishell:
The idea for need-based pricing for tickets came from Central Student Government President Bobby Dishell. When Dishell worked with the Athletic Department earlier in the school year to come up with a plan for lowering football ticket prices, he spoke with members of the Athletic Department about the possibility of special need-based pricing.
I am debating on donating the minimum $150 to join the season ticket list. Does anyone have info or experiences on the chances I am offered tickets if I only donate the minimum this year?
Dear mgoblog community,
I'm strongly considering stub hubbing one ticket to the game this Saturday in South Bend, as my son is going as a guest of a family of Notre Dame friends and sitting WITH THEM in the ND section.
I sat with them a couple years ago, and while they're cool, the surrounding fans...
...not so much.
So if I were to buy a single ticket for me, what sections are best in terms of Michigan company?
Thanks, and Go Blue!
I'm sure this gets asked every year, but could someone please shed some light on getting tickets to the tournament. I checked StubHub and there are tickets available, but I don't know if I want to buy single day tickets now, not knowing if we're going to be playing that day. If you go to Indianapolis, can you find tickets the day of? I figure we'll get a bye on Thursday, and either I'll go down for Friday, or Friday and Saturday.
With next week's game (Jan 23rd) vs MSU at Joe Louis I was wondering if there was a standard "side" of the arena Michigan fans typically are designated? I assumed the band will be on the Upper Level, but haven't been able to locate where.
Looking to take my fiance to her first Michigan hockey game and want her to get a taste for the experience. She hasn't been able to make a game at Yost yet, so thought this would be a good start.
Thanks in advance!
