Move to SEC bringing in the fans
Before the first ball has been hiked, the first ball spiked or the first goal scored, the move to the Southeastern Conference is showing its impact on Missouri athletics.
For the first the university has sold out its season tickets for football — approximately 46,500.
Quoted in an email, coach Gary Pinkel said, “What a remarkable showing by our fans. They have really embraced our program and our move to the SEC.”
“This is truly an historic benchmark which everyone in Tiger Nation can take pride in,” said Director of Athletics Mike Alden.
The sell-out leaves only single-game and visiting team tickets are available.
But according to MU Athletics tickets might not be available to the public for all games. Members of the Tiger Scholarship Fund have the first opportunity to buy single game tickets to SEC games, followed by 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.
