Football season-ticket sales crush goal

Jay FitzFeature

With the anticipation of the 2022 football season under second-year head coach Josh Heupel drawing closer, Tennessee Athletics has eclipsed benchmarks for total season-tickets sold and new season-tickets sold.

As of Aug. 3, Tennessee has sold 16,781 new season tickets for the 2022 campaign – 168 percent of its goal of 10,000 new season tickets. That also more than doubles Tennessee’s high since new season ticket sales have been tracked; the previous high was 7,502 leading into the 2015 campaign.

UT has sold 58,871 total season tickets, which is more than five percent above its targeted goal of 56,000.

Athletics Director Danny White said, “There are very few fanbases worldwide capable of delivering that rate of growth.

“That unwavering commitment and support from our fans sends an extremely powerful message to our current players – along with the country’s top recruits – about the possibilities and opportunities that exist for student-athletes here at Tennessee.”

The season-ticket sales surge perpetuates the department’s momentum following a record-setting fundraising year. During the 2022 fiscal year, the Tennessee Fund set records for fundraising total ($80,759,936), cash receipts ($68,568,453) and total donors (18,859).

Limited season-ticket inventory remains, and the only way fans can guarantee new seats in the lower level of Neyland Stadium is through season tickets. All premium inventory is nearly sold out. Fans interested in the remaining season-ticket availability can contact the Tennessee Fund at 865-974-1218 or visit

Tennessee kicks off the 2022 season in a special Thursday primetime contest against Ball State on Sept. 1.
