Nine days after the season ticket package for Mercer’s second football season was made available to new fans, the school announced Thursday that it now has a sellout of the more than 5,000 packages for this season’s seven-game home schedule.
More than 90 percent of ticket holders from the first football season since 1941 at the Macon school re-upped. Last season, the Bears averaged 9,379 in an eight-game home schedule, including a best-ever 12,172 at the Aug. 31 season opener.
The Bears, who were 10-2 in their inaugural season under coach Bobby Lamb, will open on Thursday, Aug. 28 against Reinhardt and begin play in the Southern Conference against Furman on Sept. 6. Single game ticket sales will begin in a few weeks.
