PHILADELPHIA – Fans can now purchase single game tickets to all five Penn home football games this season. Single-game tickets start as low as $8.
Be there to support the Quakers as the Red and Blue open the 2009 season on Sept. 19 against their biggest Philadelphia rival—the Villanova Wildcats. The two teams have made the rivalry an annual tradition since 2004 and have not disappointed—four of the last five meetings have been decided by a touchdown or less. The game begins at 7 p.m. and will be the only chance to catch a game under the lights at Franklin Field this season.
After two road games, Penn hosts “Take a Kid to the Game” day against Bucknell at 1 p.m. on Oct. 10. An adult and child are admitted for a combined total of $8.
Two weeks later, the Quakers host Yale on Oct. 24. The game takes place during Family Weekend on the Penn campus with the kickoff coming at 3:30 p.m.
On Nov. 7, arch rival Princeton comes to Philadelphia for the 2009 homecoming game. The Quakers and Tigers will kickoff at 3:30 p.m.
In the season finale on Nov. 21, the Big Red will take on Penn for the 117th time as the team’s continue the fifth-oldest rivalry in college football. The two Ivy schools have met every year since 1918 with the 2009 version taking place at Franklin Field beginning at 1 p.m.
Season tickets are still available and a cheaper option for those planning on attending the majority of the Quakers’ home games. Season ticket holders will also receive a 2009 Penn football media guide, access to the ticket exchange program, a Franklin Field Illustrated game program at each home game and an E-newsletter with discounts on additional tickets and merchandise. You get your tickets and these additional benefits at a price that is 45 percent off the regular price. New this year, season ticket holders have the opportunity to purchase parking in a designated reserved lot.
Penn also offers a general admission season ticket for $25 to Penn alums who have graduated in the past five years (2005-09).
Fans are encouraged to come early to each home game to enjoy Quaker’s Corner. This interactive fan zone gives the Penn faithful an opportunity to join their fellow fans for music, complimentary toast for the traditional toss at the end of the third quarter, temporary tattoos, merchandise, concessions, the Helmet Car, posters and pocket schedules, and of course, Quaker himself will be there to greet you.
