Jeff WilliamsAnalyst IFebruary 14, 2009


Tickets for the 2009 Red-White Spring Game first went on sale last Wednesday, Feb. 4. The game will be played on Saturday, April 18 and kickoff is at 1 p.m .

Nebraska fans may purchase tickets on-line at , by phone at 1-800-8-BIG-RED , or in person at the Nebraska Athletic Ticket Offic e, located in the Stadium Drive Parking Garage. Reserved tickets are $10 each. No television is planned for the game.

For the first time, Nebraska will be selling nearly all of Memorial Stadium on a reserved ticket basis for the spring game. Last year fans could purchase reserved tickets in the East and West Stadium, and after a positive response Nebraska officials have expanded the reserved seating for 2009. Due to the reserved seating throughout the stadium, all individuals must have a ticket for the game with the exception of children under the age of one.

Only a handful of sections designated for specific groups will be withheld from the reserved ticket sales. Nebraska fans are also reminded that there were no walk-up sales for the 2008 spring game, and if all reserved tickets are sold in advance of this year’s game, there will again be no ticket sales on the day of the game. More than 22,000 tickets were sold on the first day of sales last year, and 25,000 reserved tickets sold out in less than a week.

All seats for last year’s spring game were sold 10 days before the contest.
