Friday is Priority Deadline for Football Season Tickets
Charlottesville, VA – The priority deadline for 2010 Virginia football season tickets is today, Friday, April 30. Ticket holders will be renewed into the same seats held in 2009 as long as the ticket application is received by the deadline and, for those seats associated with a VAF donation, the level of giving has been maintained
Season tickets remain on sale after today’s priority deadline. Season tickets are priced at $270 for the general public and $215 for UVa faculty and staff. Specially priced upper level end zone tickets are available for $175 (sections 518 to 522) for the general public and for $99 (sections 514 and 515) for UVa faculty and staff.
As of Friday morning 22,109 season tickets had been sold for the 2010 season. On the same date last year 25,182 season tickets had been sold. The sales goal for the 2010 season is 31,751. Last year’s final season ticket sales were 30,507.
A ticket tracker is now located on the front page of VirginiaSports.com so fans can follow the progress of this year’s season ticket sales.
“Generally the feedback from fans to head football coach Mike London and what he’s been doing has been positive,” said Jon Oliver, Executive Associate Athletics Director. “I think Mike has done a great job with people and has the players pointed in the right direction. Unfortunately we haven’t seen the same level of return in season ticket sales. Maybe that’s not surprising, but it’s a little disappointing based on some of the feedback we received that led us to believe fans would get out and support Coach London.
“We’d really like to see people get out, buy their season tickets and become wild and crazy fans again. It wasn’t that long ago we were sold out. There was nothing better than Scott Stadium on a Saturday. We’d like to get back to that in support of the football program.”
Under first-year coach Mike London, the Cavaliers’ seven-game home schedule included in the season package includes dates with Richmond (Sept. 4), VMI (Sept. 25), Florida State (Oct. 2), North Carolina (Oct. 16), Eastern Michigan (Oct. 23), Miami (Oct. 30) and Maryland (Nov. 13).
Fans can take advantage of a four-month payment plan on season ticket purchases. Any season tickets purchased by April 30 can be paid for in monthly installments that begin May 1 with the last payment scheduled for August 1.
