As more people receive vaccines and we inch closer as a society to life after the COVID-19 pandemic, having fans in attendance at sporting events is an indicator we’re back on track to a normal life again.
BYU/Arizona Tickets through BYU Ticket Office
BYU Tickets sent an e-mail to its Cougar Club members on Tuesday stating that tickets to the season opener against Arizona will go on sale starting April 13 to the Athletic Director’s Circle and Legacy members. All other club members will be able to purchase tickets on April 14th.
According to the email, the general public can begin purchasing BYU/Arizona tickets on April 16th through the BYU Ticket Office.
Allegiant Stadium will have ticket options for PSL holders
The Las Vegas Raiders also sent out an e-mail to their Personal Seat License (PSL) holders on Tuesday. Each PSL Holder at Allegiant Stadium will receive an exclusive presale option to purchase tickets before the general public. The Raiders sold PSLs for 55,000 of the 65,000 seats at Allegiant Stadium.
Tickets will be available to the public through Allegiant Stadium on Ticketmaster.com beginning Tuesday, April 20, 2021, at 11 a.m. (MDT).

BYU vs. Arizona is being coined as the “Las Vegas Kickoff Classic.” It will be the first neutral-site college football game played in the $1.9 billion stadium. The game is scheduled to be played on Saturday, September 4th, 2021.
On Allegiant Stadium’s official website, BYU/Arizona is the third “upcoming event” behind a July 10th Garth Brooks concert and a September 2nd college football game between UNLV and Eastern Washington.
This will be the 25th meeting all-time between BYU and Arizona, with the Wildcats holding a 12-11-1 edge on the Cougars. The last meeting was in 2018, a game that BYU won 28-23 in Tucson as a two-touchdown underdog.
This is the third time the two programs will open a season against one another in the last five years.
