The last couple of seasons have been great for UCF. With back-to-back undefeated regular seasons, a New Years Six bowl victory over Auburn and a claimed national title, the Knights are rolling right now as a program and hoping for another big year in Orlando this fall. And the excitement seems to have been catching on with the season ticket sales as the school is claiming there are fewer than 200 season tickets remaining for the 2019 season.
On behalf of our coaches, staff and student-athletes, thank you for your support of UCF Athletics. Season ticket members are an integral part of a championship winning program.
“As of today, fewer than 200 season tickets remain,” an email from the UCF ticket office claimed on Wednesday. “In other words, it will be more challenging than ever to assist you with access to single-game tickets during the 2019 season (and possibly in future seasons).”
Spectrum Stadium, the home of the UCF Knights, has a seating capacity of 44,206 (according to Wikipedia), and the Knights have averaged 44,019 fans per game last season. The Knights saw the second-largest attendance growth from the 2017 season, with an increase of 7,173 fans per game from 2017 to 2018, according to the NCAA’s attendance records. Only Northwestern had a higher average attendance boost in 2018 (home games against Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Notre Dame certainly helped boost attendance for the Wildcats last season en route to a Big Ten West Division crown).
UCF’s home schedule has some good games on the agenda with visits by Stanford from the Pac-12, Dana Holgorsen and Houston, and rival USF. Of course, the end of the Civil ConFLiCT could be in the mix too with UConn making a visit south at the end of September.
For a school that went 0-12 just four years ago, being this close to selling out season tickets is quite a feat for the program.
