The UND athletic department is trying something different this year. Last year, attendance rose by a 1,300 people-per-game average. Couple that with arguably the best FCS home schedule in the country in 2013 and one can see why Dexter Albrecht, the UND Ticket Sales and Promotion Director, wanted to try something unique to further improve the season ticket numbers. Frankly, when we look at the schedule it shouldn’t be a hard sell. Seven home games for $75 is outstanding. Add in that five of them are against a Top 25 team and you got “all-time” value.
The promotion is called “30 Minutes or Less”. To break it down, on Wednesday, July 31st from 10am to 4pm, prospective season ticket holders from the Greater Grand Forks Area can call in and purchase their football season tickets for the 2013 season. From the moment it is finalized, a UND representative (football player, football coach, athletic department member, etc) has 30 minutes to deliver the tickets to your door or they are free. Yes, free.
Here is a link to an interview that Eric Burton of ‘Goons World’ blog did with Albrecht explaining the promotion and the reasons behind it.
