Tickets on Sale for Ducks' Spring Football Scrimmage

April 15, 2001

EUGENE - Tickets for the University of Oregon's April 28 football Spring Game are currently on sale only at selected Safeway stores throughout Oregon and southern Washington, with a maximum of 6,000 tickets available to be sold to the general public.

Close to 2,000 tickets already have been sold in advance for the intrasquad scrimmage at Hillsboro Stadium, with kickoff set for 1 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased for the final scrimmage of the spring at one of the 29 selected Fastixx-equipped Safeway stores, with the general admission seats costing $7 for adults and $5 for children ages three through 18. Children two years of age and under will be admitted free. Tickets also are available by directly calling the Fastixx outlet at 1-800-992-8499.

Tickets will not be available through the school's Athletic Ticket Office in the Len Casanova Center.

'We are happy to welcome Coach Bellotti and the rest of the Ducks' team to Hillsboro Stadium,' Hillsboro mayor Tom Hughes said. 'It makes me proud as a life-long Duck fan to know the road to the National Championship is going to begin in Hillsboro.'

It will mark the first time in three years that Oregon has relocated its Spring Game outside of Eugene and the first time since 1996 it will be played in the Portland area, with the University forced to move the game each of the next two years due to the ongoing expansion and renovation of Autzen Stadium. The final scrimmage, sponsored in part by the Safeway as well as the Oregon Club of Portland, will simulate all the activities that normally take place for an Oregon home game, with the Oregon Marching Band, the rally squad and the Duck mascot all to be present.

Gates to Hillsboro Stadium, which is located southwest of Portland off of Highway 26 approximately 15 miles west of Interstate 5, will open at 11 a.m. However, a city ordinance prohibits the consumption of alcohol in the parking lots surrounding the stadium.

For further questions call the Oregon Club of Portland at (503) 725-8427, or the Portland Duck Athletic Fund office at (503) 725-8423.
