TAMPA ― Less than a month before its season opener, USF has shown a miniscule dropoff in football season-ticket sales this season, though sales for other ticket packages have grown exponentially.

Upon a request from the Tampa Bay Times, the school reported Monday that it had sold 15,158 season tickets for 2019 as of Aug. 1, less than a 1 percent decrease from this time last year (15,281). Of those, 804 are first-time season-ticket buyers.

Sales of group tickets, however, have increased 377 percent, with 3,143 sold to date. Sales of multi-game ticket packages are up 104 percent, with 1,020 sold so far. Single-game ticket sales are up 200 percent, with 1,251 sold to date.

USF, coming off a 7-6 season that included a six-game losing skid to end the year, increased its mobile-ticket options this season, which includes seven home games. The non-conference slate features contests against Wisconsin (Aug. 30) and BYU (Oct. 12).

Additionally, USF hosts Temple, Cincinnati and Memphis on consecutive weeks in November.
