Ticket prices for Texas’ 2011 home football games will increase on average by $8, Ed Goble, UT’s associate athletic director for business, announced Tuesday.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, Goble told members of the Men’s Athletics Council that tickets for the Longhorn’s six games will cost a total of $395. Tickets for last season’s seven home games cost $400, increasing the average price of a single ticket from $57 to $65.
Prices for Texas baseball postseason games will also increase.
If the Longhorns host a regional this season, reserved seats will cost $70, up from $60 last year. General admission seats will increase from $45 to $50. If Texas hosts a super regional, reserved seats will cost $40, a $5 increase from last year, and general admission seats would increase $4 to $26.
“Demand is huge when we’re in the postseason,” Goble told the Statesman.
