Charlottesville, VA – Season tickets for 2011 Virginia football home games will be on sale to all fans starting Monday, March 21. The season ticket price in all lower level sections and the upper level sideline sections is $270 – the same price as last season. New this year are three specially priced season ticket options in Scott Stadium’s upper level, starting at $125 for the general public or $99 for UVa faculty and staff. Additionally, a new $99 Young Alumni option is available for 2007-2011 Virginia graduates. Season ticket holders from 2010 will receive email and ticket renewal applications the week of March 21. The priority ordering and seating deadline is April 30 and a four-month payment plan is offered for season ticket orders placed before May 1.
“Our fan base will be an important part of creating a great home field advantage,” said Executive Associate Athletics Director Jon Oliver. “Coach London needs our continued support as he takes the next step with the football program. We are introducing a number of new options and we will continue to offer the popular payment plan option to make it as easy as possible for people to buy their season tickets. Our hope is our fans will find a season ticket option that works for them because our success depends on their passionate support.”
Under second-year coach Mike London, the Cavaliers’ seven game home schedule includes dates with William & Mary (Sept. 3), Southern Mississippi (Sept. 24), Idaho (Oct. 1), Georgia Tech (Oct. 15), NC State (Oct. 22), Duke (Nov. 12) and Virginia Tech (Nov. 26).
“I’m excited about where we’re going as a football program,” said Virginia football head coach Mike London. “I’ve heard from a lot of people that they appreciated the passion and energy the team displayed last season. I’ve been on the sidelines when Scott Stadium was sold out and I can tell you it’s an intimidating place to play. I hope our season ticket holders from last year will renew their tickets and our fan base will take advantage of these new season ticket options. They will definitely help our football program on Saturdays this fall.”
The 2011 seating map, which may be accessed by clicking here, identifies sections requiring a Virginia Athletics Foundation (VAF) donation, as well as those sections which do not require a donation. New this season, the number of consecutive years as a season ticket holder will be factored into the VAF priority point formula and used for the priority seating process. Contributions to the VAF are the sole source of funding for scholarships and also benefit the athletics department academic affairs program. A portion of the operational budgets of each of UVa’s 25 sports also benefits from VAF donations.
Fans ordering season tickets in sections that do not require a VAF donation will receive a seating assignment at the time they place their order.
There are a number of new season ticket options in the upper level, including a limited number of $125 season tickets that will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Upper level season ticket options are also available for $145 and $175 for all seven home games. Another new option this season is a $99 young alumni season ticket available to 2007 through 2011 Virginia graduates.
The $99 UVa Faculty-Staff section returns. This area was sold out in 2010 and will be available first to returning ticket holders.
Fans ordering season tickets in the new seating areas will receive a seating assignment at the time they place their order. UVa Faculty and Staff receive a 20-percent discount on up to four season tickets purchased in all seating options.
Virginia football season ticket holders receive the best value – season tickets are 12 to 35 percent off the single game ticket price – and payments may be divided over four months between May and August for all orders placed before the April 30 priority deadline.
A new season ticket benefits package will also be introduced this season. Season ticket holders will be eligible to participate in an attendance rewards program. Prizes will be awarded based on ticket usage. Season ticket holders will also receive exclusive email communication about the team throughout the 2011 season. Among other benefits, season ticket holders have the option to order additional single home game tickets at a reduced price before May 1 and also have access to the Virginia Ticket Marketplace to sell, transfer, and return tickets electronically.
