MACON, Ga. – Preliminary sales of the 2013 Mercer Bears football season ticket package will kick off at the second annual Big Bear Event on April 21 at the University Center.
Prices for season ticket packages range from $50 to $75 per seat and can be purchased by completing a reservation form at the Big Bear Event. A purchase guarantees the buyer seating at each of Mercer’s 2013 home games. The first season’s schedule has not been finalized, but will feature a minimum of seven home games.
Only 200 season ticket packages are available during the pre-sale, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, with seat assignments determined at a later date.
Mercer’s 2013 fall season ushers in the resumption of the school’s football program, ending a 70-year hiatus for the sport. Construction of the football/lacrosse complex began last September and is scheduled for completion this fall.
Mercer’s Big Bear Event serves as the institution’s primary athletic fundraiser and is free and open to the public. The night features student-athlete award presentations and senior athlete recognitions with heavy hors d’ oeuvres for patrons. Silent and live auctions precede the night’s culminating announcement of the winner of a reverse raffle. Tickets for the reverse raffle are on sale at $100 a ticket and give buyers a chance at the night’s $10,000 grand prize. Cash prizes are also awarded for the first ticket drawn and each ticket pulled in 25-ticket intervals.
Raffle tickets can be purchased online at www.mercerbears.com/bigbearevent or by calling 478-301-2733.
