ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) – The UCF volleyball team put together its most successful season in five years in 2008, posting a 15-17 overall record and matching its best Conference USA record, going 6-10 in the fifth-toughest volleyball conference in the nation. With the Knights' 2009 campaign just around the corner, season tickets are now available for purchase online at UCFAthletics.com or by calling the UCF Athletics Ticket Office at (407) UCF-1000.
Season tickets for the 2009 campaign are $30, which is a savings of $50 over single-match ticket prices.
The volleyball squad will play 16 regular-season matches and host two tournaments at The Venue at UCF in 2009, which includes a match against in-state rival USF, dubbed VolleyBowl II, on Sept. 15.
The Knights will host a total of eight different teams during their pair of home tournaments, including NCAA participants Florida International and Florida A&M, while playing a total of seven matches during the events.
In UCF’s first season at The Venue at UCF in 2008, the team posted a 5-5 record on its home court, played for first place in C-USA standings against UAB on Oct. 12, something that no UCF volleyball team before it had ever done, and shattered its home single-match attendance mark when 1,568 fans watched the squad take on eventual NCAA National runner-up Stanford on Sept. 2. The attendance mark ranked No. 254 on the Women's Volleyball Single-Match Attendance Record for 2008.
The UCF volleyball team opens the 2009 campaign when it hosts the Radisson-UCF Invitational at The Venue at UCF on Aug. 28.
