CHARLOTTESVILLE – The University of Virginia Department of Athletics announced Thursday (Sept. 9) that football season tickets are sold out for 2004. John Tate from Luray, Va., purchased the final two season tickets.

“I am a life long Virginia Cavalier fan and am just so excited about the upcoming season. I wanted to make sure I had a ticket to each game,” commented Tate on why he purchased his tickets.

UVa sold a school record 39,123 season tickets for the 2004 season. Virginia’s previous record for season tickets sold was 36,225 in 2003.

“The response from Virginia fans has been tremendous since the season ticket sales campaign began in March,” said Hunter Yurachek, UVa associate athletics director for marketing and promotions. “Cavalier fans have responded to the team’s success on the field and they have definitely caught `Orange Fever.’ Accomplishing this goal was a total team effort from the various staffs within our department and that is what makes this so special.”

“The team is excited about and appreciative of the great support of our fans. Now together we will aim to raise the roof to a record level,” stated Virginia Head Coach Al Groh.

The Cavaliers are 1-0 and open their home season on Saturday (Sept. 11) against Atlantic Coast Conference rival North Carolina. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ABC will televise the game regionally.
