FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas fans wanting to follow the Razorback baseball team to Omaha, Neb., for the 2009 NCAA College World Series may advance purchase a book of 10 general admission tickets for $70 online. The NCAA College World Series begins on Saturday, June 13 and goes through June 23 or 24.
Arkansas became the first team to punch a ticket to Omaha after defeating Florida State 9-8 on Saturday afternoon in Tallahassee. The Razorbacks will play the winner of the Cal-State Fullerton – Louisville Super Regional. Game dates and times will not be determined until the entire NCAA College World Series field is determined.
Arkansas will receive a limited number of reserved tickets. The Razorback ticket office will begin contacting those on the ticket priority list Monday beginning with Broyles-Matthews baseball season ticket holders.
The general admission tickets are non-guaranteed seats in the right outfield and left outfield bleachers at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium. The approximate capacity is 5,400 for these aluminum, bench-style seats with seat backs. GA tickets are not designated for a specific session or date and these seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. As long as the ticket holder arrives early enough to be seated, the tickets are good for all games, includingFinals games. If the GA section is filled to capacity, the gates will close. Gates may reopen after a few innings or ticket holders may watch the game on the large-screen TV in the plaza area. General admission tickets are non-guaranteed seats.
Based on availability of reserved seats, GA tickets may be upgraded to reserved seats by paying the difference in price between a reserved and GA ticket. Upgrades are available only at the Rosenblatt box office and go on sale at 10am for that day of games only (if there is a 6pm game only, the box office will open at noon) and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. When upgrading general admission tickets to reserved tickets, the limit is six tickets for qualifying games and four forFinals games.
Single GA tickets ($10 each) go on sale at 10am the day of the game and are available at the Rosenblatt Stadium box office only. Single general admission tickets are not sold in advance and are not available via TicketMaster.
