UCF FOOTBALL TICKETS
For as little as $140, UCF football fans can purchase season tickets to watch the Knights host their first SEC opponent and compete for one final Conference USA championship.
Fans who purchase season tickets this year will secure the best available seats – and lock in the same prices – for the 2013 season, when the Knights will move to the BIG EAST Conference and begin hosting marquee teams such as USF, Boise State, Louisville, Rutgers and Cincinnati.
Several season ticket and parking packages are available, and ticket prices are lower than they were last season for many sections. Flexible payment plans allow fans to spread the cost of their tickets over four interest-free installments.
For complete season-ticket details and a seating chart, call the UCF Ticket Office at (407) 823-1000 or visit http://UCFAthletics.com. Single-game ticket information will be available at a later date.
