Catalog reveals KU basketball opponents


Oakland, Georgia State and Tennessee Tech have been listed as tentative Kansas University men’s basketball opponents in a 2009-10 season-ticket catalog sent to KU’s Williams Fund members.

The schedule released earlier this week listed “TBA” for KU’s three home opponents in the Hall of Fame Classic. The Hall at a later date will announce official opponents for KU, Memphis, Arkansas and Louisville.

Other items of interest in the season-ticket catalog involved ticket pricing.

KU this season will offer a “tiered plan” that will let Williams Fund members decide what they want to spend for the 21-game season-ticket package. Ticket prices will be based on seat location.

Season tickets for prime seats in Tier One of the fieldhouse will cost $1,255 (lower level and chairbacks); $1,155 in Tier Two (a majority of the seats); and $855 in Tier Three (upper corners). The seats will continue to be distributed through the Select a Seat program. All tickets last year cost $1,155 for 21 games.

Fans this year will be able to purchase up to six tickets. The price of single-game tickets will be scaled based on the opponent.

The brochure is available at in the Williams Fund section.

How would I find out about some of the con-conf. games being set up as home/away series? I would like to know whether some of the teams coming to Lawrence in the 09/10 season will be hosting KU at their schools in the 10/11 season or later. In particular, Belmont and Tennessee Tech.

You wait till the next schedule is set up.

I doubt Belmont and Tenn. Tech would be returning games since they aren't in big conferences.

"The price of single-game tickets will be scaled based on the opponent."--J-W Staff Reports

You pay your taxes, then they tell you your taxes aren't worth as much as another guy's taxes for the good games. For the good games, it is another guy's bank roll that matters, but, oh, hey, you've gotta pay your taxes just the same.

The egalitarian spirit of America that I once loved so much, and was once so proud to be a part of, has long since died, but this sort of thing still galls me.

Please jaybate - every team in the country does that. Why would you charge the same for the Emporia State game as the Mizzou game?

Price Tiering makes the most sense. Thank you Kansas Athletics.....the half season packages for football is a great idea too!
