ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Due to an extremely high level of demand, the University of Michigan Athletic Ticket Office announced today (Tuesday, Feb. 7) that the University's allotment of tickets to the Cowboys Classic against Alabama is sold out. Michigan received just less than 25,000 tickets for the football team's 2012 season opener and sold out before a public sale could take place.
"We have received unprecedented interest in tickets for the Cowboys Classic game with Alabama," said chief marketing officer Hunter Lochmann. "The demand is on par or greater than our athletic department has ever seen."
If the athletic department receives standing room tickets, those will be offered in the following order:
- Victors Club members with 1-49 priority points without previous Cowboys Classic orders
- Michigan football season ticket holders with no priority points
- General public
Standing room ticket availability will not be known until late April. All individuals within the aforementioned groups will receive M-mail communication if and when standing room only tickets become available.
Michigan student football season ticket holders will be able to purchase in April. Information will be emailed in late February.
The Alumni Association will once again host the Official University of Michigan Cowboys Classic Tour and Tailgate. All packages include a game and tailgate ticket. Air and land only packages are available. To register or for more information, visit michigansportstours.com or call (877) 513-2320.
