March 14, 2000
MEMPHIS - The University of Memphis is in the process of building a database of individuals who are interested in purchasing season basketball tickets. If you would like to have your name added to our mailing list, please contact the Tiger Clubs at 678-2334. Below are answers to often asked questions.
How much are season tickets?
Lower level tickets will cost $265 each and upper level tickets $190 each. These prices are based on an 18-game men's home schedule plus one women's game to be played in the Pyramid.
How are seats locations determined?
Season ticket priorities will be determined using a priority plan. Tickets are and will be assigned according to Tiger Club donation level and total accumulated priority points within each level of Tiger Clubs.
Tiger Club Giving Levels:
Do I have to be a member of Tiger Clubs to purchase season tickets?
Yes if you want to purchase lower level season tickets. No if you want to purchase upper level season tickets. A minimum annual donation of $50 qualifies you for the right to purchase four season tickets. A complete priority plan will be sent to all individuals on the mailing list. All Tiger Club members have priority in the entire seat selection process, including upper level tickets.
When do I have to make my gift to Tiger Clubs in order to receive priority?
All donations to the Tiger Clubs are due by June 30 for the upcoming 2000-01 sports season. Your Tiger Club donation automatically qualifies you for priority seating for other University of Memphis sports programs, including football and women's basketball.
Does purchasing season football or women's basketball tickets increase my priority?
While purchasing season tickets will not change your Tiger Club classification, it will increase your priority point total within your giving level. You can purchase football season tickets for as low as $60 each through the Family Plan and women's basketball season tickets for as low as $25 each though the Family Plan.
When will I actually select my seats?
Tentatively, the seat selection process will take place at the Pyramid between July 31 and August 11. Appointment times will be based on Tiger Club donations received by June 30 and in compliance with the priority plan. However, if you want to purchase upper level tickets and not be a Tiger Club member your seats can be assigned to you in Section 226.
What happens if I am not satisfied with the available seats based on my donation?
If you are not satisfied with available seat location based on your Tiger Club donation you may either request a refund or select another giving level to choose seats.
Who will be on the Tigers home schedule?
While all home opponents have not been finalized, The University of Memphis will host Ole Miss, Arkansas State, Kansas State plus C-USA schools Cincinnati, Marquette, St. Louis, Southern Miss, South Florida, Houston, UAB and Tulane in 2000-01 at the Pyramid. In addition, Arkansas, Tennessee, DePaul and Louisville are scheduled to play in the Pyramid during the 2001-02 season.
