The kick-off to the 2019 Ole Miss football season is fast approaching with a bright outlook on the upcoming slate. Coach Matt Luke and the Rebels look to be bowl-bound after being on probation for the past three years. Fans are purchasing tickets to see what this young team can accomplish on the gridiron.
Last season, the Rebels finished with a 5-7 overall record. At the time, Luke made some staff changes as he brought in a new offensive and defensive coordinator to the program.
The ticket sales for the 2018 campaign were at 47,000 between the number of student tickets and full season flex passes at the start of the football season. Heading into the 2019 season, the ticket office has already sold 36,000 tickets which is on track for the targeted goal.
The director of ticket operations at Ole Miss Katie Wisdom told HottyToddy.com that their goal for the year is the low to mid-40s in season tickets.
“We are approximately 36,000 season tickets including students and our full-season flex passes,” Wisdom said.
For this season, fans have a couple of options to purchase tickets that are more flexible.
Fans can get season tickets in the South End zone at $299, no donation required, or on the Sideline starting at $450 ($400 per ticket for every sideline seat and donations starting at $50 based on location). Also available is the Rebel Flex Pass as either an End zone Pass or a Sideline Pass. End zone seats will be located in the South End-zone or the North End-zone in section N11 for $249. Sideline Pass is located in any sideline section from A-J or K-S for $399. Rebel Flex Pass tickets are sent with seat location 24 hours prior to kickoff and the fan will get a new seat for every game allowing them to experience multiple areas of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Other options that are viable for fans outside of the ticket package is the Mini Plan that commemorates the 125th season of Ole Miss Football. Fans can select one conference and non-conference game to attend with one parking pass for each game for just $125.
“(They) can purchase as many tickets as they would like per game and will receive a single parking pass per account per game regardless of ticket quantity,” Wisdom said.
In Early August the ticket office will have single-game tickets go on sale. To reserve a ticket to watch the Rebels “Lock the Vaught” this season click here.
