BOULDER – Coming off a season where the University of Colorado men's basketball team reached its second straight NCAA Tournament, achieved another 20-win season and set a number of attendance records at the Coors Events Center, a new record was achieved Thursday morning.
In unprecedented fashion, men's basketball season tickets are sold out for the 2013-2014 season.
There will be a limited number of single game tickets based on availability. Fans wanting to be a part of the pre-sale process for single game tickets can sign up for the free CU Athletics e-newsletter, Buffs Blast, at CUBuffs.com.
The Buffs Blast pre-sale begins Monday, October 14. Any remaining single game tickets after the pre-sales will be on-sale to the general public on Tuesday, October 15 beginning at 8 a.m.
Due to the high demand of the Kansas and Arizona games, the pre-sale of any remaining single game tickets for these games is being offered via the process that is used for post-season tickets with access based on donor priority points. This process will be conducted through separate communication to eligible priority point groups while supplies last.
In each year of head coach Tad Boyle's tenure, attendance numbers have steadily increased at the Coors Events Center.
Last year, the Events Center faithful helped with a number of school records with seven sellouts; 12 of 15 home games exceeding 10,000 fans; in addition to record totals in season total (155,884); season average (10,392); conference total (94,371); and conference average (10,486).
The Events Center also saw 14 of 15 games with over 9,000 fans.
The 10,392 average works to 94 percent of capacity (11,064) of the Coors Events Center and finished second in the Pac-12. Under Boyle, the Buffs have now enjoyed the best three consecutive years in attendance numbers ever (421,028, an 8,255 average for 51 games; no previous coach averaged over 6,500 for a three-year run).
Over the three years, the Buffaloes have established a home court dominance with 44 victories in 51 games and an 86.3 winning percentage. The 44 wins rank second all-time over any three-year span at home.
The 2013-2014 slate is comprised of 18 games at the Events Center with the Buffs opening the home season against UT Martin on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 4 p.m.
