“This morning, our servers encountered an error due to the overwhelming number of students and fans attempting to purchase season tickets for 2017 Badger Football games,” the post read. “We regret to inform you that due to this system failure, all ticket orders have been automatically voided.”

The UW-Madison Athletic Department has since issued a statement acknowledging the inconvenience of the ticket sales process, saying they are working to improve this system in the future.
