FUNDS TO FINANCE NEW SEATING, PRESS BOX
LEBANON -- Cumberland University Director of Athletics Ron Pavan announced new season and single-game ticket prices for the 2011 football campaign this week. New bleachers and press box facilities will be in place for the home opener on September 17 against Kentucky Christian, with delivery and construction set for the month of August.
The new bleachers will feature 187 seats in front of the press box, with 100 chairback seats in the section. Chairback season tickets will cost $200 per seat in 2011, with half of the fee serving as a personal seat license for future use.
The season ticket price will reduce to $100 per seat for the 2012 campaign.
General admission season tickets may be purchased for $30. General admission prices for the 2011 season will increase to $10 per game, with $8 tickets for senior citizens. Children 10 and under are admitted free for all Cumberland athletic events.
A season pass may also be purchased for $150, allowing fans general admission to all CU home events. Fans may purchase season tickets or a season pass by calling Jo Jo Freeman at 615-548-1350. Credit cards will be accepted over the phone for payment.
The new bleacher structure is set to arrive August 9 with the press box understructure and press box building thereafter. With good weather the entire project should be finished by the end of August.
