WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue football season tickets for 2013 have been on sale for just over a week, and interest has been strong.
So far, there have been 3,000 new season tickets sold. A year ago, there were 1,641 total new sales.
Interest has been particularly high in the South End Zone, where season tickets are priced at just $98. Less than 1,100 seats remain in that area, which accommodates 7,000 spectators.
With new head coach Darrell Hazell at the helm, a renewed enthusiasm surrounding the program and a sensational home schedule, you won't want to miss any of the thrilling action at Ross-Ade Stadium.
Season tickets are the only way to guarantee a seat for the Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio State games, plus they reflect a savings of up to 56 percent on projected single-game prices and are the best seats in the stadium.
The easiest way to renew or order is online:
For fans who want to renew or order season tickets in-person or via phone, the Athletics Ticket Office in Mackey Arena is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Phone: 765-494-3194 or 800-49-SPORT.
The priority deadline to renew tickets is May 1.
Prices are the same as last season for nearly 80 percent of the seats in Ross-Ade. Those prices are as follows: $273 for Touchdown, $175 for North End Zone, $98 for South End Zone and $119 for students.
A Legacy Fund has been implemented for 22 percent of the 62,500 seats in Ross-Ade, with the generated revenue going directly to support recent upgrades and future investments in the football program. Fans who purchase tickets in the Prime ($273 plus $250 annual seat donation) and Sideline ($273 plus $100 annual seat donation) are guaranteed the same price through the 2015 season as long as they renew annually. The Legacy Fund is not a personal seat license, which generally requires a multi-year commitment and permits the buyer to sell his seat to someone else.

This season's home schedule is arguably the best in school history. It includes 2012 national champion runner-up and intrastate rival Notre Dame (Sept. 14), Orange Bowl participant Northern Illinois (Sept. 28) and Big Ten Conference powers Nebraska (Oct. 12) and Ohio State (Nov. 2).
