With Tiger Nation still buzzing about the addition of Georgetown to its already attractive 2007-08 schedule last week, the University of Memphis athletic department announced Monday that $100 terrace level season tickets at FedExForum are on sale. To order terrace level $100 season tickets, call the athletic ticket office at 678-2331.
For information on donor reserved seating, contact the Tiger Scholarship Fund office at 678-2334. The Tigers have 19 scheduled home dates at FedExForum in 2007-08, including contests against Arizona, Georgetown, Gonzaga and Tennessee. Memphis also hosts two rounds (four games) in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic.
“I believe this is one of the best deals around,” said Memphis head coach John Calipari. “To buy $100 season tickets for 19 home games to watch one of college basketball’s top teams, that’s less than buying a movie ticket. We are also planning some things for fans that purchase terrace level season tickets to make it an event for them.” The Tigers, ranked No. 1 in ESPN.com’s summer poll, return five starters from their 2006-07 squad that posted a 33-4 record and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight.
Memphis swept the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles for a second-straight year in 2006-07.
