HOUSTON - As the University of Houston Football program continues its spring workouts, fans are asked for their patience as they prepare to renew their season tickets.
With the demolition of Robertson Stadium and the on-going construction of the new Houston Football Stadium, administrators are finalizing plans for the Cougars' home venue during the 2013 season. An announcement for Houston's home site will be made by mid-April. Fans should stay tuned to UHCougars.com and Houston Athletics' social media sites for the latest information.
Potential scheduling conflicts are being reviewed where the Cougars will play home games this fall. Although administrators do not anticipate it happening, these conflicts could force Houston Football to use multiple venues for home games. Playing at multiple venues would likely impact seating options as well as season-ticket pricing available for all season-ticket holders.
Representatives from the Houston Athletics Ticket Office expect to have renewals out in mid-April. The renewal deadline for season tickets will be in mid-May. As in previous years, season-ticket holders have the option to make payments over a three-month period.
"As our fans look forward to the 2013 season, we anticipate they will receive their season-ticket renewal forms in mid-to-late April," Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Mack Rhoades said. "We appreciate everyone's patience as we work through the process of playing off campus and waiting for the release of the NFL schedule."
