Kennesaw State University officials say they've reached a milestone for football ticket sales since the school announced it was launching an NCAA Division I program earlier this year.

Spokesman Al Barba says Kennesaw State University has sold more than 1,000 season ticket deposits for the school's inaugural 2015 season at Fifth Third Bank Stadium.

Kennesaw State offered season tickets for football at $99 per season for the program’s first three years.

Barba says the sales account for nearly a third of all available seats in the team's stadium, and a total about 3,600 seats are available for sale.

Director of ticket sales and operations Bob Lindsey says the tickets were sold in just over three months.
