OXFORD, Miss. - As football student tickets go on sale Monday (May 2), Ole Miss is announcing that all other Rebels sports will be free for students beginning in 2011-12 for home regular-season events, including
basketball and baseball.

Led by President Taylor McGraw and Director of Athletics and Recreation Nathan Dye, the Associated Student Body worked closely with the Rebels athletics department to formulate a plan for student tickets that was both convenient and affordable.

"I'm thrilled that athletics was willing to work with Nathan and myself on this new student ticket plan," McGraw said. "It will go a long way toward increasing student attendance at all sports and building school spirit. I'm confident that this announcement will be followed by many more student-focused initiatives from athletics." 

"The students are the key to gameday atmosphere," said Ole Miss Director of Athletics Pete Boone. "Taylor McGraw and Nathan Dye presented some great concepts that benefit our students and encourage participation at all Ole Miss athletics events. We all have to be excited about this plan." 

Football student season tickets will be available for purchase online at the OleMissSports.com ticket site beginning Monday at 8 a.m. at a maximum of one season ticket per student.   

Season tickets will be sold at a price of $105 with no additional charges or processing fees, and the ticket will be downloaded to their student ID, which will provide entrance into all seven home football games.  There will be no paper tickets.   

Based on percentage of class size and the number of tickets purchased last year, a set number of tickets will be available for each class (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, law, graduate and pharmacy).  Incoming students may purchase tickets beginning July 5.  

Students will have the opportunity to buy any unsold tickets starting August 23, the day after fall classes begin. 

All student tickets sold are general admission. Only students who are enrolled for at least half-time hours for the fall 2011 term will qualify to purchase season tickets.
