Season ticket prices going up

I just received my renewal letter for my basketball season tickets. Prices are going up. I had three season tickets but the increase means I will have to lose one and go down to two season tickets. I know the program is on the rise and the price increase is to be expected but it still sucks. Hope I can at least stay in the same base line area.

Got mine too but I wasn’t surprised about the slight increase considering that our BB venue remains the best sporting value around. I also noticed football tickets went down a little.so maybe it all equals out

That’s the gold standard indicator for program strength. A very good sign for Pez and KS.

Can you post the prices? I’m on the waiting list, can’t see right now.

I haven’t received anything yet; was it an actual letter or email?

It’s a Cougar Pride package. Basketball renewals don’t start until the middle of April and that was in a pre-Corona world…

The price increase (I can’t tell if my tickets in 117 increased. Don’t remember what I paid last year) is reasonable. We have a top 20 program. I’m willing to pay for that.

If there was ever a season to have season tickets it’s this season coming up

I suspect that the increase was already in the works but with the economic havoc that the COVID-19 has created with uncertainty of of future layoffs I may hold off to the last minute before I renew.

Right now they shouldn’t increase anything and should probably push back deadlines for all season tickets.

My tickets went up $50 a seat. That might not sound like much but when on a budget it adds up when have three season tickets. Going to have to go down to 2 tickets next year. I like the area I’m in too, so will suck if they force me to move from the section even though I would still be buying two seats. The prices also wouldn’t be that bad if they didnt force a Cougar Pride donation on each seat, so they can fudge the donation numbers for the athletic department.

The Cougar Pride donation doesn’t bother me as much as the $30 processing fee. How is that possible? Someone breakdown what that $30 is covering and why it is so essential? It just seems like a petty jab at your supporters.

I remember when they had a processing fee for renewing online but not over the phone which made no sense. Processing fees are a money grab in my opinion - the overhead required to “process” should be covered in the cost of the product.

OK, I got that. I don’t remember what the price was last season, but I already ordered my football tickets the first day we could.

What is deadline for basketball?

No clue, but I’m more worried about my early bird pricing for football. I’m not spending $1,000 to renew when I have not clue what will happen in the next few months.

I can certainly understand that and assume you are not alone in that regard.

CougarPride got back with me and I was able to just drop the one seat and stay in the same location with the other two. I was told that they are going to push some things back with the virus going on, but I did not go into details with them on that.

Ben - Our seats in TDECU have been $200 per ticket until our 2020 renewal. Now they are $225. IMO I still think a bargain at $37.50 game. Now with CP seat donation of $440 total is about $111 per game. CP donation has not gone up from day 1 required donation. BB tickets went from $225 last year to $275 for 2020 / 2021.
