If you buy your tickets through Missouri or Kansas, chances are you’ll have a great seat to watch the third Border War football game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
“We have all the tickets to the lower bowl,” Mark Alnutt, MU associate athletic director for administration, said on Saturday.
Each school, Alnutt said, has an allotment of 27,500 seats to the Nov. 28 game. Missouri began selling Border War tickets to the public at MUTigers.com at 6 p.m. Friday and that sale continues through Sunday.
But Alnutt said more than 11,000 tickets had been ordered previously by donors and season ticket holders and a large block are being reserved for MU students.
Starting Monday, any remaining tickets can be obtained by calling 1-800-228-7297 884-7297 in Columbia) or in person at the Mizzou Arena Ticket Office. Tickets for club level seating are $100, for field box $60, for upper box $50 and for upper reserved $35. Tickets may not be available in all price ranges.
BY THE WAY, on MU’s Pick Two ticket promotion that kicks off on Aug. 14, in which for $99 you get a ticket to either the Nebraska or Texas games as well as a ticket to either the Baylor or Iowa State games?
The intent is two pronged. To boost sales to the lesser-demanded Baylor and Iowa State games. And, to make sure if Nebraska fans want to buy tickets to the MU home game on Oct. 8, they will have to pay extra for the privilege.
Two years ago a grass-roots (and not school run) campaign urging MU fans to buy extra tickets to the Nebraska at Missouri game successfully limited the size of the Cornhusker representation at Faurot Field.
Yes, there were thousands of Big Red fans. But considerably fewer thousands than previous years when Cornhusker boosters, shut out of home game tickets, regularly turned road games at Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State and Iowa State into seas of red.
