Pack announces that season tickets are sold out

N.C. State football remains a hot ticket, even during an economic recession.

Season tickets for N.C. State games are sold out for the ninth straight year, according to an announcement today by Brian Kelly, the school's assistant athletics director for ticket operations.

But a limited number of single-game tickets remain on sale. Tickets for the Murray State, Gardner-Webb and Duke games remain available. A few "Rivalry Packages," which include seats for the Duke and North Carolina games for $93, also remain.

Athletics director Lee Fowler said N.C. State's improvement under third-year coach Tom O'Brien has kept the team popular among fans.

"Even in a difficult economic climate, our fans continue to show how deveoted they are to Wolfpack football and how excited they re about the coming season," Fowler said. "I know it means a lot to Coach O'Brien and his team that they will again be playing in a packed Carter-Finley Stadium."
