Despite the record numbers of season ticket sales, there are still seats available to purchase.
The Texas Tech fans are investing in the Red Raider football program at a historic rate as the demand for season tickets has reached record numbers for the second time in the last three years.
With 46,546 season tickets sold, Texas Tech has surpassed the previous season ticket record of 30,092 that were purchased prior to the start of the 2008 season. The 46,546 season tickets include the Texas Tech student body, which accounts for approximately 12,548 tickets. The official seating capacity for Jones AT&T Stadium will rise to 60,454 in 2010 with the addition of the east side stadium building.
"We couldn't be happier with the enthusiasm that our fans have for this football program," said Head Coach Tommy Tuberville. "If you haven't purchased your season tickets yet, it's not too late. They still have plenty of seats. We want to make sure that Jones AT&T Stadium is full every time we step out on the field."
Despite the record numbers of season ticket sales, there are still seats available to purchase and fans can do so online or by calling the athletics ticket office at (806) 742-4412 or (888) GO-BIG12. Fans interested in club seats or one of the few remaining suites in the new east side building should contact the Red Raider Club at (806) 742-1195.
