The University of Colorado will be giving football season ticket holders flexibility around game start times. Starting this season, they will have the ability to exchange tickets for a future game up to 48 hours before kickoff.
The Pac-12 reserves the right to shift conference games accordingly to accommodate the needs of television broadcast schedules. On a couple of occasions, the notice before games was a week and caused complaints with the loyal fans.
The university is also making the process more convenience by allowing season ticket holders to login to their account and make changes on the day the game time is announced. No need to show up at the box office, just visit www.cubuffs.com/exchange and plan a future game with the same number of tickets.
The policy change shows the collaboration that Athletic Director Rick George has with CU's season ticket holders.
"We understand from feedback from our fans that the issue of when game times are announced can be a challenge," CU Associate Athletic Director Matt Biggers said. "We believe this exchange program will help alleviate some of that for our season ticket holders by giving them another option if a particular game time does not fit well into their personal schedule."
The 2016 football season is almost a month away, kicking off with the Rocky Mountain Showdown at Mile High on Friday, Sept 2. Tickets are still available starting at $35 and can be purchased at the CU box office or online at Ticketmaster.com.
