Season tickets for the 2012-13 Virginia men's basketball season are currently on sale. Two five-game mini-packages and a three-game Tip-Off package will be on sale starting Oct. 1. Fans may purchase mini-packages in advance of the public at a Select-a-Seat event at John Paul Jones Arena on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 1-3 p.m.
All courtside seats and lower level seats in UVa's John Paul Jones Arena must be purchased as part of a season ticket. Season tickets in the lower level cost $435 and require an annual contribution to the Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF) and a gift to the John Paul Jones Arena project.
There are four upper level season ticket price options: $165, $215, $340 and $435. UVa faculty and staff may purchase up to four season tickets at a 20 percent discount. Virginia alumni who graduated between 2008-12 may purchase a season ticket in the upper level for $132. An annual contribution to VAF and a gift to the John Paul Jones Arena project may be required for some upper level seat locations.
Men's basketball season ticket holders are eligible to take advantage of a host of benefits, including participation in a rewards program, the opportunity to purchase reserved parking and single-game tickets in advance of the public, and the opportunity to transfer or return tickets electronically. Season ticket holders will also be invited to preseason events with the team at John Paul Jones Arena.
The Virginia-Old Dominion game in the Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic game is part of a doubleheader that also includes George Mason playing Richmond. Requests are now being taken from current men's basketball season ticket holders and Virginia Athletics Foundation donors for tickets to the Governor's Holiday Hoops Classic. Tickets to this event are valid for both match-ups and will be available to the public if ticket inventory remains beginning Oct. 29.
Fans can purchase tickets online at VirginiaSports.com and in-person at the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office in Bryant Hall at Scott Stadium weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased by calling 1-800-542-UVA1 (8821).
