CHARLOTTESVILLE – Season tickets for the 2011-12 Virginia men’s basketball season went on sale Friday, Aug. 12.

This is the second consecutive year season ticket sales have begun before the release of the Cavaliers’ schedule by the Atlantic Coast Conference office. This allows fans to be aware of season ticket options for the upcoming season and to have more time to make their buying decision before the Sept. 12 priority-seating deadline.

The ACC office is expected to release Virginia’s 2011-12 men’s basketball schedule in late August. The 16-game home schedule features eight non-conference games and eight games against conference opponents.

All courtside seats and lower level seats in UVa’s John Paul Jones Arena must be purchased as part of a season ticket. Season tickets in the lower level cost $405 and require an annual contribution to the Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF) and a gift to the John Paul Jones Arena project.

There are four upper level season ticket price options: $150, $200, $320 and $405. UVa faculty and staff may purchase up to four season tickets at a 20 percent discount. Virginia alumni who graduated between 2007-11 may purchase a season ticket in the upper level for $120. An annual contribution to VAF and a gift to the John Paul Jones Arena project may be required for some upper level seat locations. A three-month payment plan option is available for all season ticket purchases.

Men’s basketball season ticket holders are eligible to take advantage of a host of benefits, including participation in a rewards program, the opportunity to purchase reserved parking and single-game tickets in advance of the public, and the opportunity to transfer or return tickets electronically. Season ticket holders will also be invited to an exclusive Meet the Team day at John Paul Jones Arena.

Virginia’s 2010-11 men’s basketball season ticket holders will receive an e-mail outlining the renewal process as well as an application in the mail on approximately Aug. 25.

Mini-package and single-game ticket options and on-sale dates will be announced in the future following the release of the 2011-12 schedule.

Fans can purchase tickets online at starting at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 12. In-person or telephone purchases also begin Friday at 9 a.m. by calling 1-800-542-UVA1 (8821) or locally at 434-924-UVA1 (8821) or in-person at the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office in Bryant Hall at Scott Stadium.
