Why are 2004 Cal Football season tickets going on sale so early?
Coming off another winning season, a victory in the 2003 Insight Bowl over Virginia Tech, and ranked in the Top 10 of ESPN's preseason 2004 college football poll has Bear fans excited about the upcoming year. As a result, there is increased demand for Cal football tickets and the Cal Athletic Department is making it easier for fans to reserve their tickets early and support the Bears.
I am interested in becoming a Cal Football season ticket holder. How can I reserve my 2004 season tickets?
Beginning Friday, Feb 5, all fans have the opportunity to purchase 2004 season tickets. Simply purchase your tickets online at CalBears.com, call (800) GO BEARS or visiting the Cal Athletic Ticket Office at 2223 Fulton St. in Berkeley (open Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.). Tickets may be purchased by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover), check (made payable to "U.C. Regents") or in-person with cash.
I purchased season tickets for the 2003 Cal Football season, how do I ensure that my seats will stay the same?
Season ticket holders from last season will receive a "Season Ticket Renewal Form" in the mail on or around Feb. 5. Simply complete and submit this application (with payment) to the Cal Athletic Ticket Office before Friday, April 2. Fans seated in reserved section for donors must also submit their respective Bear Backers donation before the April 2 deadline to secure their same seats.
I purchased season tickets in 2002 (or during a previous season), but was not a season ticket holder for the 2003 season. Do I still have season ticket priority?
Unfortunately, only 2003 season ticket holders can renew their same seats for the 2004 season. Former season ticket holders who have discontinued their purchasing of season tickets have the same privileges as new or first-time season ticket holders. Although exact seating will not be determined until May 3 (when season ticket renewals have been fulfilled), fans may begin purchasing season tickets on Feb. 5. Seating for new season ticket holders will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
I'm a recent Cal grad. Do I receive a discount toward my Cal football season ticket purchase?
Cal alumni from the past 10 years qualify for "Young Alumni" season tickets, which are only $118 each (a $39 savings). Alumni from the Classes of 1994-2004 are eligible for "Young Alumni" seating in Section QQ, located adjacent to the Cal Student section and the Cal Band.
I love the Bears and attend games as often as I can, but have never purchased season tickets. What are the advantages to being a Cal football season ticket holder?
Being a season ticket holder guarantees that you will have the same reserved seat at all Cal football home games, and not have to worry about trying to acquire tickets for games that may sell out. In addition, your season ticket purchase supports not just Cal football, but all Cal intercollegiate athletic programs.
