It will cost a little bit more to watch the Gators play in The Swamp next season.

The school announced Wednesday it has slightly raised the cost of season tickets, from $330 to $380. The new cost will rank UF seventh among schools in the SEC.

The Gators play an attractive seven-game home schedule in 2017 that includes matchups against Tennessee, LSU, Texas A&M and Florida State.

UF played only five home games this past season with the revamped schedule following the postponement of the LSU game, and subsequent cancellation of the Presbyterian game, due to the threat of Hurricane Matthew.

The most efficient way to order is online by visiting “My Account” under the Gator Ticket Office tab on FloridaGators.com. Fans may also call the Gator Ticket Office at (352) 375-4683 or visit the Ticket Office on the west side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
