NCCU Announces ‘Budget Buster’ Deal on Football Season Tickets

Starting Thursday, March 1, North Carolina Central University is offering a ‘Budget Buster’ deal on its 2012 football season tickets, selling the first 500 ticket packages for only $99 – a $36 savings off of the value of a reserved seat for each home game.

The 2012 NCCU football season ticket package includes a reserved seat for four home games, including Fayetteville State (Sept. 1), Hampton (Oct. 20), Delaware State (Nov. 3 – Homecoming), and rival North Carolina A&T (Nov. 17).

The Budget Buster offer also impacts NCCU’s most popular ticket option, the All-Access Card, which includes a season ticket for both football and basketball seasons. Starting March 1, the first 200 All-Access Cards will be sold for just $175 – a savings of $102 if reserved seats were purchased separately.

The Budget Buster deals are available until the specified numbers of tickets are sold, but no later than June 15.

Starting July 1, the family-friendly ‘Family Pack,’ with general admission tickets for two adults and two children to each home football game, will be available for $199 – a savings of $61 off of the actual ticket value if sold separately.

Once the Budget Buster deals are over, regular season ticket package pricing will take effect on July 1. Football season tickets will be sold for $115, while NCCU faculty and staff can purchase football season tickets for $105. The cost of the All-Access Card will be $185.

For complete details or to purchase tickets, stop by the NCCU Ticket Office on the lower level of W.G. Pearson Cafeteria (610 E. Lawson Street) or call (919) 530-5170.
