PSU raising ticket prices

UNIVERSITY PARK — Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics has announced that 2018 season football tickets will increase by $35 ($5 per game), marking the first season ticket price increase since the 2009 season. Donation levels will remain the same for next season, which will feature seven games in Beaver Stadium.

During the 2018 season, the Nittany Lions will host five Big Ten Conference foes, three of whom are ranked in the latest Top 25 polls — Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin — as well as Iowa and Maryland. Appalachian State and Kent State round out the home slate.

“We are grateful for the tremendous support from Penn State alumni, students and fans for the Nittany Lion football team,” Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour said. “The investment of resources, time and passion our season ticket holders make in our program and the atmosphere they create in Beaver Stadium are unrivaled. The decisions we make come with careful deliberation about the potential impact on our loyal fans and community and the conditions for success they create for our student-athletes.”

The prices for car and bus season and advance single game parking will remain the same in 2018. The price for car parking purchased on game day at the stadium lots will rise to $60 (cash only). Fans are encouraged to purchase single game car parking in advance for $20 online at, by calling 1-800-NITTANY or in-person at the Bryce Jordan Center. Single game advance car parking for the 2018 season will be available starting next spring.
