FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Rams fans needed only a week to sell out the university’s available allotment of tickets to the annual in-state football clash with the University of Colorado, the Colorado State athletic department announced Tuesday.
Colorado State had 3,000 tickets, priced at $65, available to the Sept. 6 battle at Folsom Field, slated for national television on FSN as the nation’s only football game (college or NFL) scheduled in that Sunday primetime window. CSU initially made its CU tickets available to Ram Club members in June, then to Rams season-ticket holders, and finally to the general public July 6.
The Rams athletic department estimates that approximately 800 of the sales went to CSU students.
Colorado State fans still wishing to attend the game should wait until CU single-game tickets become available Aug. 3, then call the CU ticket office at 800/87-BUFFS (2-8337) or 303/49-BUFFS (2-8337), or visit CUBuffs.com. According to CU officials, there will be no waiting list.
OTHER FOOTBALL TICKET OPPORTUNITIES: Colorado State in 2008 won its bowl game behind the most impressive individual offensive effort in NCAA postseason history, Gartrell Johnson’s 375 yards. Led by Steve Fairchild, the Rams last season improved their win total by four games – more than every program in the nation with a first-year coach other than nationally ranked Mississippi.
Single-game tickets for the Rams' 2009 home slate also went on sale July 6, and CSU continues to offer several very affordable and attractive season-ticket packages.
In addition to the full six-game season-ticket packages, which begin at $125, Colorado State offers two mini plans, the "Pick 3" and "Pepsi 4-Pack," allowing fans more flexibility with their schedules and budgets.
The "Pick 3" mini plan allows fans to purchase sideline tickets to any three home games, excluding the homecoming matchup vs. Utah on Oct. 10, for just $66.
The "Pepsi 4-Pack" mini plan is available for select dates -- Sept. 12 vs. Weber State, Sept. 19 vs. Nevada, Oct. 24 vs. San Diego State, and Nov. 27 vs. Wyoming – and gives fans four north end-zone tickets to the desired game plus vouchers for four hot dogs or pretzels, four Pepsi products and a free parking pass, all for only $80. Free parking will only be available for will-call orders placed more than two weeks prior to the home event.
Single-game tickets are available online at CSURams.com, in person at the CSU ticket office, or over the phone at 1-800/491-RAMS. Single-game seats can also be purchased throughout the year at any TicketsWest outlet found in King Soopers and City Market locations throughout Colorado.
