WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - When 2013 Purdue football season tickets go on sale Feb. 7, prices will be the same as last season for nearly 80 percent of the seats in Ross-Ade Stadium.
Those prices will be as follows: $273 for Touchdown, $175 for North End Zone, $98 for South End Zone and $119 for students.
For 22 percent of the 62,500 seats in Ross-Ade, the athletics department will implement a Legacy Fund, with the generated revenue going directly to support recent upgrades and future investments in the football program.
The plan is similar to the one successfully implemented for basketball in Mackey Arena and a modest one compared with others in the Big Ten Conference.
Season-ticket holders in the Prime category (7,540 seats in sections 104-106 and 123-126) will be assessed a $250 donation per seat and those in the Sideline category (5,983 seats in sections 103-104, 106-107, 122-123 and 126-127) will be assessed a $100 donation per seat.
In conjunction with the implementation of the plan the price of season tickets in the Prime category is being reduced from $357 to $273 per ticket. Sideline tickets will remain $273 before the Legacy Fund donation.
On a per-game basis, the additional charge is $15.14 for Prime buyers and $10.86 for Sideline purchasers.
Legacy Fund seating plans at other Big Ten stadiums average more than $1,000 in seats comparable to the Prime area and more than $800 in seats similar to the Sideline area.
Purdue is one of only a handful of NCAA institutions that operates without any state or university funding (22 out of more than 300 in fiscal year 2010-11), as mandated by the Board of Trustees and endorsed by the President.
