Wisconsin--Ticket Futures

The Badgers recently announced that there OOC games were sold out. Tickets at Camp Randall are selling at face value ($39) even for the September 15 game against The Citadel. Expectations are high for the season which helps the market. Interestingly UW does not have a season ticket package with the assumption that the tickets will sell.

Tickets for UW nonconference football games sold out
The Wisconsin ticket office has sold 69,140 public and student season tickets for the 2007 football season, according to Brian Moore, assistant athletic director for ticket operations.
Nonconference single-game tickets are sold out for the home opener Sept. 1 against Washington State, The Citadel on Sept. 15, and the Northern Illinois game scheduled for Oct. 20.
Information on the Big Ten Conference home game sale, scheduled for Aug. 20, will be made available at a later date. However, tickets to the Michigan game on Nov. 10 will not be available.
Tickets for away football games are also sold out with the exception of Illinois ($50) in Champaign, Ill., on Oct. 6.

Based on the assumption that you could buy a ticket at $39 for a game this year the money would work out as follows:

Washington State at Wisconsin 9/1$49
The Citadel at Wisconsin 9/15$39
Iowa at Wisconsin 9/22 $107
Michigan State at Wisconsin 9/29 $75
Northern Illinois at Wisconsin 10/20$49
Indiana at Wisconsin 10/27$65
Michigan at Wisconsin Football Tickets 11/10$107
Total Revenue (best case) $491
Total Cost$273
Profit (best case)$218
