Keeping their promise, University of Texas athletics officials are not raising prices on existing season ticket holders for the second straight year.

The 2017 football season ticket pricing structure was unveiled on Monday, and it’s predominately the same as the last two seasons.

All-in prices for renewing customers range from $199-$5,630, when you combine the ticket price plus the mandatory Longhorn Foundation donation. Tickets have gone up slightly for new customers, though. New customers will see prices range from $219-$5,690.

“We are pleased to offer current season ticket holders the opportunity to renew their tickets at the same price for the second consecutive season,” Texas athletic director Mike Perrin said in a statement. “We also continue to have affordable season ticket offers for new customers starting at $219.”

Former athletic director Steve Patterson raised prices significantly prior to the 2015 season. In response to fan backlash, UT officials announced in November 2015 that prices and required donations would remain flat for the next two years.

There is no change to the Longhorn Foundation donation requirement this season for returning ticket holders. 

Some fans may be grandfathered in at lower donations requirements. For those who purchase new tickets, the donation component alone could be anywhere from $0-$5,000 per ticket.

For example, there is no donation requirement to sit in the upper decks of the north end zone. Season tickets in sections 111-118 are $199 for renewing customers and $219 for new customers.

Texas will host Maryland (Sept. 2) and San Jose State (Sept. 9) at Royal-Memorial Stadium next season. The Big 12 has yet to announce the 2017 conference schedule, but UT will host Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

The deadline to renew season tickets and secure seat locations is March 2, 2017. Those who renew by Feb. 2 will receive a commemorative coin, according to the athletic department.
