OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA/Ole Miss Athletics) – Ole Miss has achieved its goal of selling out of football season tickets, as the athletics department announced it has sold the full allotment of 50,386. That number also breaks the previous school record for season tickets distributed in a single season.
“The first step in the championship process is selling out Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, and Rebel Nation has responded in a big way by helping our program reach this milestone,” said Athletics Director Ross Bjork. “With our team’s strong start and our fans’ tremendous support, it’s a great time to be a Rebel.”
This year’s season ticket number tops the previous highs of 50,009 in 2009 and 48,180 in 2004. While the 2009 season was also a sellout, a smaller allotment was set aside for season tickets that year, and more single game tickets were distributed.
“For those that did not have the opportunity to purchase a season ticket, please take advantage of the remaining single game tickets and join us at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to help provide our players a great home field advantage,” Bjork said.
The school also announced that a limited number of individual game tickets still remain for the Idaho, Arkansas, Troy and Missouri games.
