The Nevada Athletic Department has made the decision to freeze season tickets in hopes of bringing in more fans for the 2019 season.
The department realized that something needed to change since season ticket sales have declined for the past five consecutive seasons. According to NevadaSports.net, the team had a record-selling year in 2013, selling 12,783 tickets, but since then, the Wolf Pack has seen a decline in attendance, selling only 8,771 season tickets last season. Over the past five years, they’ve lost nearly 31 percent of their fans, totaling a decrease in 4,000 people. However, last year’s average attendance rose with a solid season program.
In order to reel their fans back in, they made some minor changes last season, increasing pricing in sections D, C, and E, and while decreasing prices in J, L, B, and F, as well as lowering east-side suites from $29,000 to $25,000. Each section price point will stay the same as it did last season in 2019: premium loge at $9,100, loge boxes at $8,100, club seats at $1,225, premium field at $675, priority field at $399-$550, field reserved at 155-$195, family section at $125, end zone GA at $125, and plaza reserved at $99.
This year, the team will play home games against Hawaii, San Jose State, New Mexico, and Webster State, which might not bring in the attendance they had hope for. Luckily, though, they’ll host the Big Ten’s Purdue, as well as the in-state rival match against UNLV. Their first game will kick-off at home versus Purdue.
