    Just got my email. Paid for them now. My ticket prices (corner) stayed the same, but apparently ALL season tickets now have a donation to the Buff Club tied to them. Mine was only $50 per ticket.

    That's awesome, I wonder what the others are. Still sounds like the best bargain in the Rockies. Unlike football, I can't imagine there wil be much dismay about this.

    Mine mid-courtside have a $150 donation tacked on, but the base price is the same. My 3 tickets for basketball now cost only $180 less than my 4 tickets (+ parking permit) for football. Still a good deal for the number of games we get to go to.

    I'm still a little curious as to why season tickets on bball haven't got up yet.

    Season tickets for bball haven't gone up, but suddenly I'm paying 75% more for them this year. Funny how these seat taxes work.
    Honestly, this needed to happen to start getting us more on par with what other people are paying for tickets across the country, and it isn't that big a deal since we're getting 3 more games than we got last year.
    I would have been a little more irritated if they had imposed a $150/seat mandatory donation on me AND raised the price of each ticket by $50. I'm going to assume that the $50/ticket hike is what we'll get hit with next year, so over a two-year period they'll probably roughly double the revenue from season ticket sales (donations + tickets).

    With the donation, the miles I'll earn on my CC bill will just crack enough for a return flight from either Vegas or Dallas. Fair enough.

    I'm happy to pay this. I'm getting value for my sports entertainment dollar at twice this price.

    This is interesting. Sections 2, 3 & 4 now have reserved seating in them. Didn't they used to be 100% GA?

    Yeah. There was always the courtside but I believe everything above that was GA.

    Some very rough math on the $$$ increase:

    10,000 ish attendance per game
    -3,500 ish students (who's ticket price didn't change)

    6,500 ish people who's ticket price went up.
    *$100 ish increase in ticket prices, tons of tickets with $50 increase, many with $150, some with $400, few with $2000

    $650,000 ish increase per game.
    *15 ish Basketball games played in Boulder

    $ 9,750,000 increase in revenue. ~10 mil extra this year?

    Basketball school :thumbsup:

    Way I see it they created a new category with the floor seats and merged the reserved beachers and corner categories into one.

    This is last year's price map. Basically, they took the lower 1/3 of GA, and converted it to reserved bleachers. They also converted the "corners" into reserved bleachers, so they are all at the same price point ($35 ticket price bump for former Reserved Bleachers folks, plus the $50 seat tax = 100% price increase). Not going to be very much GA seating available from here on out.

    Our ticket prices went up about $100 per season, not per game. Your math is way high, methinks.

    18 home games this year vs. 15 last year for the men.

    Women are also adding a $50/ticket donation although you can still buy $100 GA without the donation.

    It's good that the school will be able to make more revenue from season tickets then in the past. Looks like in the ballpark of $750,000 a year more revenue. Should help the program going forward

    My cost just doubled. Ouch. I was getting a hell of a bargain before, but this hurts.

    This takes a little of the sting away. I didn't realize that. Thanks for pointing it out.

    What is the significance of a "donation" vs a ticket price increase? do they make them tax deductible or something?

    They are tax-deductible for us and it gives the AD more flexibility in where it is recorded.
