STORRS, Conn. (AP) — UConn has dropped the price of its football season tickets in the wake of another losing season.

The school says season-ticket holders, who began receiving renewal notices on Thursday, will see a 10 percent drop in prices from 2017 totals. Fans who renew by March 1 will receive an additional 10 percent discount.

Athletic Director David Benedict says the price drop is an effort to “allow and encourage” more fans to attend the games.

UConn went 3-9 last season, including 2-4 at Rentschler Field, its 40,000-seat stadium in East Hartford.

The averaged announced crowd for a home game was 20,334, the lowest in the stadium’s history.

Season ticket prices will range from $354 to $96. That’s down from a range of $390 and $138. Access to some tickets also requires a “seat donation” of between $100 and $900.
