Penn State sets Beaver Stadium record for ticket prices

Barry Reeger | For the Tribune-Review
Penn State fans could pay up to $240 for a ticket to the home game against Michigan this season.

Penn State is setting a football ticket-pricing record for the second consecutive year.

Single-game tickets for the 2019 home schedule go on sale to the public Tuesday, with the Oct. 19 game against Michigan reaching a new mark. The best seats cost $240, making them the most expensive tickets in Beaver Stadium history.

The price is $15 higher than the top tickets for last year’s game against Ohio State, which previously held the Beaver Stadium record. Prices for the Penn State-Michigan game range from $120-$240. Penn State has used a variable-pricing method for football tickets since 2014.

Penn State said tickets for the Michigan game have been in high demand through pre-sales for members of the Nittany Lion Club, with only single seats available. A limited number of tickets are available for the Sept. 14 game against Pitt, as well.

That’s a change from two years ago, when tickets for the Pitt and Michigan games were not available during the public sale.

Single-game tickets for the 2019 season go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Prices range from a low of $40 (the least-expensive seats for the Sept. 7 game against Buffalo) to the $240 ticket against Michigan.

Tickets for the Pitt game range from $100-$210. Other prices include the following:

Aug. 31 vs. Idaho ($45-$140)

Sept. 7 vs. Buffalo ($40-$130)

Oct. 5 vs. Purdue ($80-$180)

Nov. 16 vs. Indiana ($75-$170)

Nov. 30 vs. Rutgers ($55-$150)

Tickets are available in six different pricing categories. For information, visit Penn State’s ticket website.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
