PISCATAWAY, N.J. (May 23, 2014) – The impact of Rutgers’ inaugural Big Ten football season continues to be felt at the box office, with the school already surpassing last year’s sales totals for three-game mini-plans prior to those plans being made available to the general public.
Mike Boswell, Rutgers’ Director of Ticket Sales and Services, said his department has sold 479 three-game mini-plans for the coming football season, exceeding the total of 476 sold in all of 2013. To this point, mini-plans have only been made available to season ticket holders looking to purchase extra tickets.
The three-game mini-plans go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 27.
Cost of the mini-plan packages is $177 for the end zone and $210 for the upper sideline.
“We have seen significant increases in both season tickets and mini-plans over last season,” Boswell said. “Our fans are excited about Big Ten football and they recognize that season tickets and mini-plans provide much better financial value than single-game tickets.”
The three-game mini-plans give fans the option of choosing between three sets of home games: Penn State (Sept 13.) OR Michigan (Oct. 4), Wisconsin (Nov. 1) OR Indiana (Nov. 15) and Howard (Sept. 6) OR Tulane (Sept. 27).
Penn State’s trip to Piscataway on Sept. 13 will mark Rutgers’ Big Ten debut.
The Scarlet Knights open the season on Aug. 28 against Washington State in Seattle.
