TCU Sells Out Of Football Season Tickets

May 16, 2012

FORT WORTH, Texas -- In preparation for its debut season in the Big 12 this fall, TCU has sold out of football season tickets with a new record-breaking total of 30,000.

It's the third straight year the Horned Frogs have set a new mark for football season-ticket sales. Last year's record of 22,500 was preceded by 19,143 in 2010.

"We are incredibly proud of the Horned Frog Nation," TCU director of intercollegiate athletics Chris Del Conte said. "With the momentum in our program under (head coach) Gary Patterson, the new Amon G. Carter Stadium set to open this fall and the excitement throughout TCU, Fort Worth and the entire Metroplex with our Big 12 membership, this is an incredible time to be a Horned Frog.

"We truly thank everyone for allowing us to achieve this milestone."

TCU has sold out its last eight home games and 10 of the last 14.

TCU opens the 2012 campaign Sept. 8 with a home date versus Grambling State. The Horned Frogs' first Big 12 home contest is Oct. 6 against Iowa State.
