Ready to watch some Longhorn basketball at the new Moody Center? If you're looking to go courtside, it'll cost a bit more than last season—prime season tickets for the 2022-23 season are selling for $8,500 a pop.

Season tickets at the upcoming 15,000-seat arena range from $500-$8,500, according to a University of Texas men's basketball ticket pricing map released this week. Season ticket holders in the rafters can find seating for as low as $500, while members of the close-court Establishment Club can shell out between $4,000-$7,500 to catch Texas basketball front and center.

And at $8,500, top tickets at the Moody Center are nearly $3,000 more than prime season passes this season at the Frank Erwin Center.

Men's basketball's 2022-23 schedule hasn't yet been released, but the Moody Center has allotted 60 home dates for the UT men's and women's basketball programs each year.

The UT teams' future home will open with a bang on Friday, April 29 with performances from local country music greats George Strait, Willie Nelson and the Randy Rogers Band.
