UNM raises prices on football season tickets

University of New Mexico football season tickets, priced at an increase from last year of 5 percent plus the cost of an additional home game, went on sale Wednesday.

Season-ticket renewal forms were mailed out Wednesday, with a renewal date of May 6. New season-ticket purchasers are asked to call Joe Gehling at 505-925-1620 or Andrew Aho at 505-925-5743, or go to unmtickets.com.

Paul Krebs, UNM’s athletic director, said he hopes increased revenue from football can help support the school’s athletic programs across the board.

“We have kept prices static for the past few years, understanding that it would take a bit for the program to develop under Coach (Bob) Davie. This year we have expectations to compete for a bowl,” Krebs said in a news release.

Davie is beginning his fourth season as UNM’s head coach. The Lobos are 11-26 overall during his tenure and were 4-8 last season.

The Lobos open the 2015 season at home against Mississippi Valley State on Sept. 5. They have seven home games, one more than is normal.

Season ticket packages range from $96 to $221. Those prices are as much as 38 percent less, depending on the package level, than seven-day advance single-game tickets purchased for all seven games. Same-day single-game tickets, if purchased for all seven games, would cost from $152 to $278.

Single-game tickets range from $16.70 to $34.70, if purchased seven days or more in advance, and $21.70 to $39.70 on game day. Single-game tickets go on sale Aug. 24.

The annual game against New Mexico State has been designated a premium game, meaning single-game tickets will be sold at an increase: $21-$39 in advance.

Youth tickets and family ticket packages are available at most price levels. Full-time UNM faculty and staff members are eligible for a discount.

A “Send-A-Kid” package, for those who would like to pay for an underprivileged or at-risk youth to attend the games, is available for $59.
