Mercer University has been able to create even more seats for the first Bears football season in 72 years.
After selling more than 5,000 season tickets and seeing all of the single-game tickets for the season opener sell out in 27 minutes, Mercer's athletic department has announced additional seating options have been made available.
People can now buy tickets, for $7 each, to sit on the grass berm behind the north end zone. The tickets will go on sale Monday, Aug. 19, at 10 a.m.
These tickets will be available online only at tickets.mercer.edu. Click on the “Mercer v Reinhardt” image. All orders are subject to online convenience and mailing fees.
The Bears return to the field for the first time in 72 years on Saturday, Aug. 31, welcoming Reinhardt University to town for a 6 p.m. kickoff at Mercer University Stadium.
