The number represents nearly 60 percent of the anticipated tickets available at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.
The Owls will play their first home game in the fall of 2015. The program’s inaugural game will come on the road, Sept. 3 at East Tennessee State.
“We continue to receive overwhelming support from the community, and with a projected 3,600 seats available for purchase, the window to be a part of history is closing,” said Bobby Lindsey, director of ticket sales and operations, in a release.
Though tickets do remain, Lindsey added that “it continues to be in the fans’ best interest to place a deposit as soon as possible to establish their priority points and begin earning points.”
Those who place a refundable $20 deposit per seat can guarantee season tickets priced at $99 each through the 2017 season. University faculty and staff can purchase as many as four season tickets for a discounted price of $75.
“The response by the community regarding football at Kennesaw State has been truly amazing,” Kennesaw State football coach Brian Bohannon said in the release. “I want to thank everyone who has signed letters of intent to this point, and to have two-thirds of the available seats accounted for is a great accomplishment.”
The Owls’ program will continue forming, with the first class of recruits set to be signed this February, leading into a year of prep work before the first season kicks off. Kennesaw State will play its games as an associate member of the Big South Conference.
