Shocked my rep hasn't called me yet.
is the season ticket renewal deadline still 3/30?
@husky8273 's post made me reach out to the ticket office as well as my typical tailgate crew. The ticket office is not fully staffed for obvious reasons, so I left a message for one of the reps to call me back from home. He intimated that their definition of "flexible" will most likely be in the loosest possible definition of the word and an announcement will be made soon regarding extending "deadlines" or if they will even be imposed.Thought the priority renewal deadline was April 30th and Benedict recently indicated they would be “flexible”.
A lot gampel. I have been to the grocery store twice in the past week. No tp, tissues or paper towels. Meat isle way down. No hot dogs. Tickets are definitely on the back burner.Wonder how much this is going to hurt sales for next season as small as they are. Basketball renewals were suppose to go out already. Wonder if they will get hurt by this too.
I started with 7 (my family, my sis and her husband and a friend). The friend died years ago - my wife's good friend - so she won't go anymore. But I've been hanging on to 6 ever since. My older son will be at Evansville for grad school this year, and my younger son hates sports. Finally think I'm going to cut down to 4 - and will probably still have 1 empty for most games.Wow. The price for a season ticket in 241 has gone from $274 all in to $180? That's obviously a material decrease, and I'm glad to see them working on realizing that first they have to get butts back in the building and then only second worry about what they're charging for tickets.
Having said that, without winning it's not going to bring people back. I won't get a third seat because it's difficult enough to find someone to use my second seat now.
The closest thing we can compare this to is the 2008 financial crisis. One crucial difference was this did not hit until September of 2008 when season tickets are already bought up, but one would think this would have some impact on single game ticket purchases, walk-ups, etc.Wonder how much this is going to hurt sales for next season as small as they are.

By the way thanks for posting this, I immediately bought two seats after you put this up a month ago.Not sure if this has been here on the forum if so I have not seen it. Mods can delete if I am doubling up. Can't find a link online as the UConn site says tickets go on sale Tuesday the 11th.
My info comes from ticket information at the signing event last Wednesday. All numbers are from the flier given out. I am sure @huskymedic will be out with the latest computer generated info with 8x10 photo glossies. (Which I always welcome.)
