If you've been checking the mail for your season tickets for the inaugural season of the Mercer Bears football program, you're going to have to wait a couple more weeks.
Only 19 days away from kickoff for the first football season in 72 years, the first batch of season tickets are still in production with delivery not expected for two more weeks.
To print up the tickets, Mercer University partnered with Weldon, Williams, & Lick, Inc.--the industry leader in custom ticket design and event ticket printing.
The university has sold more than 5,000 season ticket packages before halting sales. With the other seats sold for single-game tickets, the Bears will play before nearly 10,000 fans when the new stadium is completed prior to the opening contest.
The Bears open the season against Reinhardt on Saturday, Aug. 31, at 6 p.m.. The Bears will play eight home games in 2013 at Mercer University Stadium.
