As we know, as of Monday, some 31,000 tickets had been sold for the NCAA Regional Finals at Reliant Stadium, which includes at least one game featuring the UT Longhorns. The presence of the Horns makes this a very desirable matchup for Reliant and ticket brokers. So how are we doing with those ticket sales now, on game day?
The majority of tonight’s expected crowd of 32,000-plus likely will be backing [the Horns].
So since Monday, when it was known that UT was coming to play, about 1000 more tickets have been sold. Boy howdy, that’s some kind of draw. Imagine how brisk things will be in 2010 when there’ll be 72,000 tickets available and maybe not such a strong local attraction. Are we a great sports town or what?
