As fans gear up for K-State's April 25 Purple/White spring game at the Sporting Park in Kansas City, activities for Wildcat Nation will kick off the day before as the athletics department will host the 31st Annual Powercat Auction on April 24.

The Powercat Auction will take place at Bramlage Coliseum with doors to the arena opening at 5 p.m. The silent auction will begin immediately and wrap up at 6:35 p.m., while a buffet dinner will be served from 6:15-7:45 p.m. The live auction will begin at 7:45 p.m. The auction will feature more than 100 live and silent auction items, along with a vacation getaway raffle, which will take place on the floor of Bramlage Coliseum.

The Powercat Auction, the department's largest annual fundraising event, supports the Ahearn Fund, K-State's National Fund for Student-Athlete Excellence. Last year's event raised more than $430,000 and went directly to enhance the student-athlete experience for all Wildcat student-athletes.

All seating for the 2015 Powercat Auction is available to members of the Ahearn Fund at the Powercat Club level and above. Tickets to the auction are $150, which includes the full event and meal ticket. Tickets are limited to the first 500 guests and has sold out for three consecutive years. In order to reserve a spot at the auction, fans are encouraged to register immediately.

K-State fans continue to set a national standard in support of the Wildcats as athletics officials announced recently that all nonpremium public reserved and general admission seats have been sold for the 2015 spring game.

"Sporting Park will be packed with purple next month as the K-State Nation, in addition to its current streak of 20 straight sellouts at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, has again demonstrated its commitment to our student-athletes by selling out for the spring game," Athletics Director John Currie said. "Kansas City is a crucial part to President Schulz's K-State 2025 vision of advancing the university into the ranks of the nation's Top 50 public research universities, and having the game at Sporting Park is a terrific opportunity for not only our football student-athletes but also the entire university community as we bring Kansas State to the KC area."

With the anticipation of continued demand beyond the original seating plan, K-State Athletics and Sporting Park officials have announced two new ticket options that are now on sale.

Approximately 1,200 standing-room-only tickets are available for $10 to the public, $5 for groups of 20 or more and $5 for K-State students. Also open is the Bud Light Landing in the southwest corner of the stadium priced at $75 per ticket, which includes an exclusive gameday buffet that features unlimited traditional concessions fare as well as soft drinks, water and beer (for fans 21 and older).

A final premium ticket and hospitality option is still available with a limited number of Field Club seats that range from $150 to $175. Those Field Club options provide the best seats in Sporting Park and include complimentary food and beverage service throughout the game.

All remaining ticket options are available online at www.k-statesports.com/tickets, by phone at 1-800-221-CATS or at the main ticket office inside Bramlage Coliseum.
