ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan Athletic Department announced today (Wednesday, Aug. 24) that a very limited number of tickets remain for the 2011 University of Michigan football season.
"We knew Michigan football fans were going to be excited with Brady Hoke's first season and one of the most anticipated home schedules in years, but the response this season has even exceeded our expectations," said athletic director Dave Brandon. "Demand for tickets has been outstanding and very few tickets remain.
"If possible, we could have sold more than 150,000 tickets to our night game against Notre Dame, easily one of the most anticipated games ever at Michigan Stadium," added Brandon. "Plus, with Nebraska's first visit as a member of the Big Ten Conference; the traditional season-ending game against Ohio State; and the overall excitement around Michigan football; it is understandable why our fans are so fired up."
Tickets to the Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio State games are completely sold out, but fans can visit MGoBlue.com and utilize StubHub, the official fan to fan ticket marketplace for University of Michigan Athletics, to shop for tickets. Only single seats remain for the Eastern Michigan, San Diego State, Minnesota and Purdue games.
A few hundred tickets are still available for the home opener against Western Michigan, but that inventory is expected to go fast. To purchase these single seats or tickets to the Western Michigan game, visit www.mgoblue.com/tickets.
