We just received a note about ticket allocation for the kickoff game. Here is our email to AD Jacobs, voicing our complaint about the way tickets are being distributed. Let your voice be heard and maybe the system will change!
Dear Mr. Jacobs
As a continuing TUF donor, we have tried even in this tough economy, to continue supporting the football program as well as our outstanding band. While we understand that the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Classic represents a lucrative opportunity for Auburn football and great exposure for the school and its football team, we do feel compelled to lodge a reasonable complaint regarding your ticket distribution plans.
We completely understand that those who donate more, should get a higher priority in terms of ticket choice. What we do take issue with, is the ability for those donors to get ‘unlimited’ upper deck seats. As it is this year our season ticket price is the same as last year with one less home game, so we are already paying more per game. Our fear is that most fans will not get any ticket allocation at all and shortly after distribution, a huge amount of very over-priced upper deck tickets will start to show up on Ticketmaster, Stub Hub et al.
We strongly suggest that the department re-think this policy to provide a more cost-effective way of letting the ‘average’ members of Auburn’s family to attend.
Best Regards and War Eagle!

I'm an AUBURN TIGER and LOVE IT!!
Actually, we play the same number of home games this year as we did last year (7). Clemson was on the road. Outside of a donation, you only pay face value for tickets, so a season with 7 home games will always be cheaper than one with 8.
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
While I do happen to agree with you, I'm quite certain that the policy won't change. If I'm correct, the away ticket sales work like they do for the bowl games. If the university can't sell all of their share of tickets, they would be forced to eat the difference. As long as all of the tickets get sold to anyone ( all to one buyer or individually until gone ), I'm afraid the policy won't change. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
Good luck but they don't even provide enough student tickets for all of the students that want to buy tickets...
