Arkansas reduces some ticket prices for basketball
Arkansas and LSU Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, in Bud Walton Arena.
FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas will reduce season-ticket prices in the upper level of Bud Walton Arena next season.
All upper-level season tickets will cost $300 per seat in 2017-18. That is down from last season when upper-level tickets were tiered and cost $360 to $450 for the season.
The reduction of season-ticket prices likely will lead to a reduction in single-game ticket prices next season in the upper level. Lower-level costs are not expected to change.
The Tusk Mobile Pass, which assures a ticket to each game but with an alternating seat location, will increase from $159 to $225 per seat.
Arkansas averaged 15,247 tickets sold per game in the 2016-17 season, which ranked 12th nationally and was a 0.2 percent increase over the season before.
