MEMPHIS, Tenn. - For those Tiger fans that thought there was no chance of obtaining season tickets for the 2008-09 campaign, they have one last opportunity, thanks to the University of Memphis athletics corporate partners.

Memphis Director of Athletics R.C. Johnson announced Friday that the department's corporate sponsors have released a limited number of season tickets for the general public to purchase. The season tickets are $195 and include all 18 Tiger home dates at FedExForum.

"This is a tremendous gesture on behalf of our corporate sponsors," said Johnson. "They realize there is a lot of interest in watching our Tigers play in person, and they want as many fans as possible to experience the excitement of Memphis basketball at FedExForum.

"We are grateful that these tickets have become available to accommodate all those fans that want to come and watch us play. We are looking forward to another exciting ride with this year's Tigers."

To purchase season tickets, fans can go to the Memphis athletics web site at Fans may also purchase tickets by calling the Athletic Ticket Office at 678-2331.

Memphis tips off its 2008-09 home schedule Nov. 4 with a 7 p.m. (CT) exhibition against Christian Brothers at FedExForum. The Tigers, ranked No. 12 in the preseason ESPN/USA Today preseason poll, open regular season play at home Nov. 15 versus Fairfield. That game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. (CT) tip.

Fans still have the opportunity to purchase season tickets to watch the Tigers play in 2008-09.
