July 25, 2006
Charlottesville, VA –
Charlottesville, VA — For the third consecutive season Virginia has sold out the allotment of football season tickets (39,347). This year the season tickets were allocated by June 1, the earliest sellout since the expansion of the Carl Smith Center, home of David A. Harrison III Field at Scott Stadium.
“We are excited and appreciative of the support our fans continue to show for our football program and our athletics department as a whole,” said Dirk Katstra, Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs and Executive Director of the Virginia Athletics Foundation. “It is important for us to continue to grow our program on an annual basis and selling out our venues is an important part of this process.”
There are some single-game tickets remaining for select Virginia games.
A limited number of tickets for Virginia’s Oct. 19 home football game against North Carolina are now on sale to the general public. The tickets were returned by North Carolina as part of the allotment it received as the visiting team.
The reserved seats are $40. The North Carolina game is a Thursday night contest that will be televised by ESPN. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
In addition to the tickets returned for the North Carolina game, UVa has some single-game tickets remaining for its Sept. 9 home opener against Wyoming and the Sept. 16 homecoming game versus Western Michigan.
