Men's Basketball Tickets Going Fast
Oct. 7, 2004
By CJ Bowles
Five-game packages for the Washington men's basketball team have been on sale since Oct. 1 and already one-third of the games are not available for purchase. The package originally allowed fans to pick any five of the 15 home games for the 2004-05 season, but they are now limited to choosing from 10 home contests.
Within the first 72 hours, tickets for the five-game packages were sold out for the Huskies' home games against North Carolina State (Dec. 19), Stanford (Jan. 2), Oregon (Jan. 13), UCLA (Feb. 5), and Arizona (Feb. 26). First to sell out was the Stanford game where tickets were gone the first day.
The only way to purchase tickets for the five previously mentioned games are by buying season tickets. There are approximately 800 season tickets still available for as low as $270 and don't be scared that they will not be good seats. At Bank of America Arena, the top row is closer to the action than the lower suite level at Key Arena, in other words, even in the top row, fans are right in the action.
So far, all 1,200 of the student section 'Dawg Pack' tickets have been sold as well as about 6,000 non-student season tickets.
When single-game tickets go on sale Nov. 1, fans will be able to buy tickets for the games which sold out through the five-game plans, but that is only if the 800 remaining season tickets do not get bought. Odds of the season tickets being sold out before Nov. 1 is likely, so if you want to see the Huskies take on some of the nation's premier teams, season tickets are the only way to be certain to have a ticket.
Since Bank of America Arena was remodeled in 1999, the Huskies have had seven sellout crowds including three last year against Gonzaga, California, and Stanford.
Tickets can be purchased via the internet at gohuskies.com or by calling the Husky Ticket Office at (206)-543-2200.
