The University of Akron announced season ticket packages for the 2011 men's and women's soccer home schedule at Cub Cadet Field, formerly known as Lee R. Jackson Field.
Ticket prices for the men's matches have increased, which is not a surprise after the Zips won the national championship.
Once again, those who purchase a men's season ticket package will receive one complimentary Akron Soccer scarf, which is exclusive to season ticketholders (one per season ticket). Those who renew their men's season tickets by May 20 will receive a portion from one of the net used during the 2010 NCAA championship match in Santa Barbara (one per account). There is a waiting list for chair-back and bleacher-back season tickets.
To renew your account or to become a Zips soccer season ticket holder, log on to GoZips.com/tickets, call 1-888-99-AKRON (25766) or visit the Akron Athletics Ticket Office at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field (located at the southwest corner of the venue, near Gate 1). The UA Athletics Ticket Office is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
The Zips were one of just four Division I schools to average more than 3,000 fans for men's soccer a year ago and finished second in the nation with an average of 3,213 overall. UA will have the opportunity to set an NCAA record for the longest home unbeaten streak (currently at 39 games) when Cleveland State visits for the season opener on Aug. 27.
There will be four options for men's season ticket holders at Cub Cadet Field for the second year in a row; chair-back and bleacher-back reserved seating, general admission and the family plan.
Chair-back seating is located in the first three rows of the grandstand nearest the field and can be purchased for $150, which includes a $50 donation to the Z-FUND. Bleacher-back seating is located in the second tier of the grandstand and can be purchased for $110, which includes a $25 donation to the Z-FUND. Both chair-back and bleacher-back tickets guarantees reserved seats for every home match.
A general admission season ticket guarantees access to every home match along the end lines and and can be purchased for $75.
The family plan includes a combination of either two adults and two youth general admission tickets or one adult and three youth general admission tickets, and can be purchased for $200. Youth are classified as age 3-14. Those who purchase season family plans will receive four complimentary scarves and have the opportunity to register their youth to be a ball kid. Additional youth admissions can be added to a family plan at a prorated amount of $50 per season ticket.
All women's soccer season tickets are general admission and can be purchased for $40. Or, for greater value, fans can once again just add a women's season ticket to any individual men's season ticket for just $20 or to a men's Family Plan for just $40 with an All-Soccer Season Ticket.
