Penn State announced two new football ticket initiatives in January — the Recent Graduate program and variable pricing for single game public tickets.
The Recent Graduate program gives Penn State graduates who earned an undergraduate degree from 2010-14 at any campus the opportunity to purchase up to two season tickets for $300 per ticket for the seven-game home schedule this fall. The cost includes a $50 donation to the Nittany Lion Club and is a savings of 35 percent from the regular $460 season ticket price ($360 + $100 NLC donation).
Approximately 2,000 seats remain available for the Recent Graduate program on a first-come, first-served basis. Nearly 500 new Recent Graduate season tickets have been sold for the 2014 since the program was announced in late January. The seats will be located in the North Upper Deck, in Sections NAU-NLU. Interested recent graduates can call 1-800-NITTANY, weekdays from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Penn State is implementing a variable pricing structure for its single game public football tickets during the 2014 season. Single game tickets will go on sale to the general public in July, with tickets being available for as low as $40 for some games.
