GRAND FORKS, N.D. – With the benefit of a successful “30 Minutes or Less” promotion on Wednesday, University of North Dakota athletics department officials announced that football season ticket sales have reached their highest total on record dating back to 2005.

Wednesday’s special promotion saw head coach Chris Mussman, his coaching staff and seniors Garrison Goodman, Greg Hardin, Jake Miller and Blair Townsend hand off 57 new season tickets during the six-hour delivery window. Challenged to deliver the tickets in “30 Minutes or Less” to the purchaser’s home or business or there would be no charge, the crew beat the countdown each time.

“We did seven or eight times more sales than we do in a typical day,” UND Director of Ticket Sales Dexter Albrecht said. “With all the buzz around this season and the program, we gave our coaches and players a chance to get out in the community and thank people for their support, while also getting them even more excited about what is arguably the best home schedule in the FCS this year.”

The event started at 10 a.m. and concluded at 4 p.m. and three Champions Club memberships were also purchased on top of the ticket sales.

“We all had a great time with this promotion,” Mussman said. “It was a creative way for us to get out in the community and thank our fans and hopefully engage some new ones as well.”

Mussman and his squad will face one of the toughest schedules in the Football Championship Subdivision this season with four preseason top 10 teams set to play in the Alerus Center. Those matchups include the Potato Bowl game against South Dakota State (Sept. 7), a non-conference meeting with Big Sky foe Montana (Sept. 14) and back-to-back home games with league co-champions Montana State (Sept. 28) and Eastern Washington (Oct. 12).

Season-ticket packages are still available starting at $75 per seat and fans can save up to 50 percent off the face value by purchasing those packages. Single-game tickets went on sale Thursday morning and start as low as $15 per adult ticket and $10 for a youth ticket.

Groups of 10 or more can also receive special rates for single-game tickets by getting in touch with Albrecht by calling 701.777.4582.
