Buffaloes Raise Prices on a Third of Seats

By  | 

The University of Colorado athletic department is raising prices on football season tickets by $8 a game for about a-third of the seats at Boulder's Folsom Field next season.

Prices will go from $50 per game to $58 for about 18,000 of the best seats at the 54,750-seat stadium. If all those tickets are sold, it'll mean a revenue boost of about $875,000.

The department had a record $45 million budget this year.

Season tickets for those sections affected by the increase will be $348. Since there are six games instead of seven, the total cost is $7 less than in 2008.

Prices for three levels remain unchanged, ranging from $180 to $300 for the six home games.

The Buffs will host Colorado State, Wyoming, Kansas, Missouri, Texas A&M and Nebraska in 2009.
