Boise State announced its football season-ticket packages Wednesday. I was out sick, so I’m catching up today.
Here’s a breakdown of the price increases. The Bronco Athletic Association membership prices remained the same.
Main core of the stadium: Tickets (six-game package) increased $16, or 4.4 percent.
Non-priority sections in southwest and southeast corners: Boise State combined these sections into one price category this year, so the increase is either $25 (8.5 percent) or $9 (2.9 percent) depending on what was paid last year.
South end zone: Tickets increased by $11 for adults (4.2 percent) and juniors (5.9 percent).
North end zone: Tickets increased by $8 for adults (3.8 percent) and $9 for juniors (6.2 percent).
Family plans: The four-ticket package increased by $26, or 3.5 percent.
The increase is significantly less than last year, when tickets went up about 5 percent and membership prices increased by $10 to $25.
Here are the full ticket descriptions from Boise State:
There are five different price categories for this year’s individual season tickets ranging, from $155 for a junior general admission ticket in the north end zone to $380 for an adult season ticket in the main core of Bronco Stadium.
Tickets in the main core of the stadium must also include the applicable Bronco Athletic Association membership, including $950 for Wrangler; $650 for Roughrider; $475 for Buckaroo; and $150 for Bronco.
In non-priority sections, ticket prices are $320 in the upper and lower decks of the southeast corner of the stadium, and the upper deck of the southwest corner. Non-priority reserved seats in the south end zone are $273 for adults and $199 for juniors, while non-priority general admission tickets in the north end zone are $220 for adults and $155 for juniors.
Boise State will once again have its popular Family Plan, which includes two adult and two junior tickets for the price of $766. These tickets are in the lower and upper sections of the southeast and southwest corners, and the south end zone. Additional junior tickets can be purchased for $78.
