Orlando-based Gator football fan Zeke Otsuka has his guest list all figured out for the Florida football three-game mini plan he just purchased.

“The plan is to take my 11-year-old daughter to a blowout game with no chance of UF losing,” he said, noting he wants to ensure a positive experience with no drama for her.

Next, he will take his wife to the Florida Atlantic game on September 4, and then his buddy goes with him to the rivalry game against Florida State on Nov. 27.

“I chose based on dates,” Otsuka said. “And I never saw an FSU game, and I double hate them, and they are not strong right now,” he added.

Otsuka said he bought the mini plan last year, but the pandemic changed his plans. The mini plan tickets went on sale last week and are still available for fans to purchase online.

“Season ticket prices for the 2021 season start at only $380 + Gator Booster Contribution,” said an announcement sent out to fans last week. “University of Florida recent grads and faculty and staff can purchase tickets for a reduced rate.”

The mini plan is a new concept that includes three packages.

The Tennessee mini plan is $120 per person and includes: Florida vs. Tennessee on Sept. 25, Florida vs. Vanderbilt on Oct. 9 (homecoming), and your choice of one of the following games: Florida vs. FAU on Sept. 4 (season opener) or Florida vs. Samford on Nov. 13.

The Florida State mini plan is $150 per person and includes Florida vs. Florida State on Nov. 27, Florida vs. Vanderbilt on Oct. 9 (homecoming), and pick one the following games: Florida vs. FAU on Sept. 4 (season opener) or Florida vs. Samford on Nov. 13.

The Alabama mini plan is $180 per person and includes Florida vs. Alabama on Sept. 18, Florida vs. Vanderbilt on Oct. 9 (homecoming), and pick one the following games: Florida vs. FAU on Sept. 4 (season opener) or Florida vs. Samford on Nov. 13.

More than one mini plan can be ordered at a time. For more info call the Gator ticket office at 352-375-4683.

Last season the Gators allowed just 17,000 fans to attend games at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium due to the pandemic. UF recently loosened restrictions on outdoor sporting events, and last month athletic director Scott Stricklin said he expects events to return to full capacity this fall.
