COLUMBIA, Mo. - Just days after eclipsing its goal of 45,000 season tickets, the Mizzou Athletic Department announced that it has sold out of football season tickets for the 2012 season. The season ticket sellout is the first on record, setting a new standard of fan support at Mizzou as the Tigers prepare for their inaugural season in the Southeastern Conference. The final number will take some time to reconcile, but the sellout number is estimated at approximately 46,500. That represents the number of seats that are committed to fans on a season basis, while remaining inventory is designated on a single game basis including general admission and visiting team allotments.
"What a remarkable showing by our fans," said Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel. "They have really embraced our program and our move to the SEC. We asked them to step up, and they've done it in a major way, and we couldn't be more appreciative," he said.
"We've noted since making the move to the SEC that it would be a gradual process of getting fully acclimated to our new home, but our fans are clearly excited and ahead of that curve," said Director of Athletics Mike Alden. "This is truly an historic benchmark which everyone in Tiger Nation can take pride in," he said.
Single game tickets for the three non-conference home games are currently available for purchase online, by phone at 1-800-CAT PAWS or 884-7297, or at the Mizzou Ticket Office.
Tiger Scholarship Fund members at designated levels currently have the opportunity to purchase single game tickets to SEC games, followed by Mizzou Football season ticket holders. If tickets remain, SEC games will go on sale to the public on Friday, Aug. 24 beginning at 6 p.m. online at MUTigers.com. Tickets will be available by phone at 1-800-CAT-PAWS or 884-7297 and at the Mizzou Ticket Office beginning on Monday, Aug. 27 at 8 a.m.
Please note: single game tickets for the Georgia and Alabama games may not be available to the public. All orders are subject to availability.
