TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State’s athletics department and Seminole Boosters have combined to make continuing to attend Seminole football home games easier for recent FSU grads. The new Young Alumni program will make a reduced price season ticket available to alumni within the first three years of their graduation as well as offering a special booster membership.
“We recognize that coming right out of school is a time when our alumni are focusing on getting a good start on their careers and we wanted to do something to make it easier for them to attend home games and build booster points,” said FSU Director of Marketing Jason Dennard. “You find across the country that it is easy to lose touch with your immediate graduates as their addresses are usually changing and they lose the familiar contact points they had in college. We hope this will help with that and keep that opportunity for tickets open to them.”
FSU will begin offering a season ticket for $179.00 to those alumni who have graduated in the past three (3) years. In addition, the Young Alumni will qualify for a 50% discount on their membership in Seminole Boosters which will help them build booster points towards priority seating once their three year opportunity ends.
All Young Alumni members will be seated in sections 121 or 122 which opened this year when the entire student section was combined and seated in the north end zone for the 2009 season. Each Young Alumni is limited to two season tickets and they can call the FSU Ticket Office at 888-FSU-NOLE or sign up on-line at Seminoles.com. Once they have ordered tickets their graduation date will be verified and an expiration date will be placed on the file.
