'FTTT' Campagin Announced | Season Ticket Information | Single Game Ticket Information
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The Southern Miss Department of Athletics announced Friday that 3,000 tickets have been sold as part of the Fill To The Top campaign, which was designed to sell out the school's home opener, Sept. 15, against East Carolina.
This campaign began July 18 as athletic department staff and community leaders met and 10 teams were selected to go throughout the state selling tickets to groups, organizations and businesses in the Carlisle-Faulkner Field at Roberts Stadium upper decks for $10 apiece. Each team includes a team leader, an athletics department contact, and community leaders.
Each team has been given the task to sell 650 upper tickets with a minimum of 10 tickets per purchase for a goal of 6,500 tickets.
"With just over six weeks until our East Carolina game, we are almost halfway to our goal and that is a tribute to our hard-working community leaders who have selflessly volunteered their time and our athletic staff whose tireless efforts will make this campaign a success," said Southern Miss Director of Athletics Jeff Hammond. "As we begin our 100 years celebration, we look forward to filling The Rock for our home opener against East Carolina."
The Southern Miss Athletic Ticket Office will also offer $10 upper deck to any fan wishing to purchase tickets for the East Carolina contest. There is no limit on the number of upper deck tickets purchased at this price.
Fans can purchase their tickets either online at SouthernMissTickets.com, by calling 1-800-844-TICK (8425) or visiting the Pat Ferlise Ticket Center from 8 a.m., until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Game time is set for 2:30 p.m.
