ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department announced Friday (March 30) the ticket pricing levels for the 2012 football season. The six-game home slate will cost $390 per ticket.
"We appreciate the contribution our fans make to our football program and Michigan Athletics through their commitment every Saturday at the Big House," said Dave Brandon, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. "The financial support we receive from our fans provides us with critical resources we need to create outstanding academic and athletic experiences for our student-athletes across all of our 29 sports. Our fans passion for Michigan football is unparalleled."
Individual game tickets will be priced at $75 per ticket for games against Air Force (Sept. 8), Massachusetts (Sept. 15), Illinois (Oct. 13), Northwestern (Nov. 10) and Iowa (Nov. 17). The Michigan State game on Oct. 20 has been designated as a premium game and individual tickets for that contest will be priced at $95 per seat.
This is the second straight year that Michigan has moderately increased season ticket prices after keeping prices constant for the seven years prior to the 2011 season.
"We benchmarked our ticket prices against our peers and other comparable football venues and we have concluded that these prices will bring us closer to current industry standards," said Brandon.
The athletic department will also offer ticket packs to accommodate fan interest in partial season-ticket packages. Ticket packs and individual game tickets will go on sale in July.
