17 Sellouts This Season Will Be A UD Arena Record
DAYTON – The University of Dayton has announced that all of this year’s men’s basketball season and single-game tickets in both the upper and lower Arena have been sold, selling out the entire 2021-22 season.
“Our basketball program stands on the shoulders of our fans, past and present, who have unconditionally supported our players and coaches over decades,” UD Vice-President and Director of Athletics Neil Sullivan said.
“Our fans and the entire community have proven to be a distinctive, fundamental and enduring part of our program. We are thankful for their extraordinary support and partnership. This is a relationship, not a transaction.”
This will set a new UD Arena record of 17 sellouts for the season and extend a sellout streak to 28 dating back to 2019-2020. It marks the third straight season (2018-2019, 2019-2020, 2021-2022), that the University of Dayton has increased the Arena sellout record. The previous record was 14 sellouts in 2019-2020, preceded by eight sellouts achieved in the 2018-2019 season.
The University completed a three-year, $76.2 million transformation project of UD Arena in time for the Arena’s 50th anniversary in 2019-20.
Since the Arena opened in 1969, Dayton has been in the NCAA`s Top 35 in men’s basketball attendance all 50 seasons, and in the Top 25 a total of 32 times. UD was the 11th school to have 10 million fans attend a men’s basketball game in its current building. The others were Butler, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, New Mexico, Purdue, Syracuse and Vanderbilt.
