A limited quantity of season tickets remain for purchase for the home schedule that figures to be one of the most attractive in school history. Remaining season tickets will be available only over the phone by calling 800.49SPORT.
Nearly 650 new season tickets have been sold, and the retention rate from last year’s unbeaten home season stands at about 95 percent.
Fans still will have the option to purchase mini-pack tickets that will feature games against Indiana, Michigan State and defending national champion Virginia, but season tickets and mini-plans likely will be the only way to purchase tickets for these marquee games.
John Purdue Club members will receive priority points and be able to purchase mini-plan and single-game tickets earlier than the general public, with purchase windows beginning in late September.
Purdue posted a 15-0 record at Mackey Arena a year ago, and this year’s home slate features Virginia, Michigan State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Texas. The Boilermakers’ 17-game homecourt winning streak is the sixth-longest streak in America, and Purdue is a nation’s-best 63-4 at Mackey Arena over the last four years.
Purdue lost three starters but returns several key contributors from last year's NCAA Tournament Elite Eight squad. Nojel Eastern and Matt Haarms are returning starters as juniors, and regulars Evan Boudreaux, Aaron Wheeler, Eric Hunter Jr., Trevion Williams and Sasha Stefanovic all return after strong seasons. Head coach Matt Painter also welcomes a highly regarded freshman class and high-scoring grad transfer Jahaad Proctor.
