Has anyone else still not received them? Tip-off is on Friday and I still have no tickets? Am I going to have to contact the Athletic Ticket Office?
Student Basketball Tickets
You get them today at open practice from like 4 to 615
Yes, free pizza and drinks
So are the 1400 extra students wrapped around the baskets.
You should have gotten an email about 2 days ago from the Athletic Department. There is a pickup for Maize Rage ONLY from 4PM - 6:15PM today at Crisler.
I am actually picking up the tickets on behalf of someone else so that would be why I did not receive the notice. Thanks for the heads-up.
FYI, You'll need that person's mcard.
EDIT: If they even allow that?
I picked them up yesterday afternoon at the Ticket office. Comes with a free Maize Rage t-shirt! That was a pleasant surprise. Go Blue!
Anyone know how many student season ticket packages were sold this year? It would be interesting to see if that's going up, and by how much. Also, Michigan bball jersey sales in Ohio, if anyone has the numbers for that, or an appropriate simile.
2008 - Around 500
2009 - Around 2,500
2010 - Little over 1,200
2011 - Over 2,600
Yay for bandwagon fans. 2008 was the best. Free food and drinks, gift cards and sweatshirt, not too crowded, and a tournament team with some big home wins.
All i know is that theyre sellin' like hotcakes down there.
I wonder how much time all of our companies/ schools loose out on. There are so many posts during the day on here it's awesome. I bet total I spend 2-3 hrs a day on her reading stuff. It's so addicting.
have been sold according to http://www.annarbor.com/sports/um-basketball/michigan-basketball-student-tickets-sales-have-already-doubled/
Looking forward to a more rocking crisler
The official number I got (straight from the Head of Marketing, no less) was 2,612. As previously stated, come to Crisler Arena any time from 4:00-6:15pm tonight to watch an open practice (Maize Rage only), pick up tickets and t-shirts, eat pizza and drink pop, and have a merry old time.
And to respond to an earlier post, you are going to need your own M-Card. They are pretty strict about that stuff now and I would be extremely surprised if you were able to pick up someone else's tickets. Probably not gonna happen.
Just got mine today.
BTW, question for somebody who knows. This is my first year with basketball tickets and I see that we have to have an ID to get the actual ticket on gameday. I will be out of town this weekend and can't make the WSU game, and I was wondering if it just has to be a student ID or do they actually track who has what voucher. In other words, can I give it to one of my friends who is also a student without any red tape to go through?
Also, do I still get credit for the seating priority thing if I do give it to another student? I don't care that much, since I can't make it regardless and just want somebody to be able to go in my stead, but it'd be a nice bonus and I don't know how they associate who's been to what game (Via voucher scan or via recording your ID number).
