Colorado sells out of season tickets for 1st time since 1996
Colorado has yet to play its first game under Deion Sanders, but the Coach Prime effect is already in full swing on campus.
The Buffaloes announced Monday that they sold all their season tickets for the 2023 college football season. It's just the ninth time in school history that they've sold out of season tickets and the first since 1996.
"Selling out at the earliest point before a season in our history is a testament to our fans' thirst to see a championship-caliber product on the field," Colorado athletic director Rick George said.
"The 100th season of Folsom Field will be a special one with Coach Prime's first team and a tremendous home schedule on tap. We expect a full house every game and believe we will accomplish that goal shortly after single-game tickets go on sale."
Colorado expects to welcome a sell-out crowd of just over 45,000 to its spring football game on April 22, a new school attendance record.
Sanders joined Colorado in December after spending the last three seasons at Jackson State.
