Town meetings scheduled for football points system


Kansas University athletic department personnel will host a series of town hall-style meetings next week to inform fans about the new priority points system for football games at Memorial Stadium.

The meetings, similar to last year when KU instigated a points system for men's basketball seating in Allen Fieldhouse, are: 3-8 p.m. Monday at the Topeka Ramada Inn; 3-8 p.m. Monday at the Downtown Marriott in Kansas City, Mo.; 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday in the Simons Conference Room in the Wagnon Center; Noon-6 p.m. Wednesday at the Wichita Marriott; and 3-8 p.m. Wednesday at the Overland Park Convention Center.

Seven games are in the season-ticket package, including the Jayhawks' first contest in Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium -- Oct. 15 against Oklahoma.

Also on the slate are Big 12 Conference rivals Missouri (homecoming Oct. 29), Nebraska (Nov. 5) and Iowa State (Nov. 19), along with non-conference foes Florida Atlantic (Sept. 3), Appalachian State (Sept. 10) and Louisiana Tech (Sept. 17).

Public season tickets are $225. Faculty/staff season tickets are $180 and recent-graduate packages are $150. Family Zone packages are $300.

The Family Zone, located in the north bowl, includes two adult and two youth general-admission tickets, and does not include the Oklahoma game at Arrowhead.

All regular-season ticket allocation and seating will be based on lifetime points for current Williams Fund members.

Non-donor reserved seats are available in specific sections throughout Memorial Stadium for $225. In addition, Family Zone plans do not require membership to the Williams Fund.
