Kansas State students will see the price of student tickets for men’s basketball and football decrease by up to 18 percent for the next school year. The reduction is the first time student ticket prices have gone down in more than a decade.

“Our student body has been an integral part of the gameday experience in Manhattan,” Athletics Director Gene Taylor said in a press release. “We want to provide them an affordable ticket option as we anticipate welcoming the entirety of our student section back for the 2021 season.”

Student tickets will be a flat $200 total for access to both sports for students who purchase them before May 14. Prices go up to $220 after that date. To add on ICAT, a student will pay an extra $40.

ICAT pass-holding students will receive priority entry to games as well as “special gear” and “invitations to special events.” The special ICAT section will go away, though. The former ICAT and student GA sections will merge into one student section.

K-State is also offering a $170 individual sport pass that allows students to choose football OR men’s basketball. Previously, there was only a football option for single-sport passes.

Seating will remain in the same sections as prior years, along the 50-yard line for football and along the sideline for basketball.

Tickets go on sale Monday, March 29.
