Exclamation OHIO FB: Sold out for the season?
Quote:Wow, I looked to check this out and there certainly aren't many seats available. Still 3+ weeks to go until the first home game too.

The rumor I've been hearing is that North Texas may be the first game in a loooong time (maybe, ever?) to sell out in advance of gameday. If so, that will be unbelievable.

Quote:The Marshall game will definately be an advanced sellout so people should buy now

Quote:I think each of the five Saturday home games could be sellouts as they all have compelling factors surrounding them:

-North Texas. Home opener, and if we beat Louisville, kiss da baby!
-Marshall. Duh.
Austin Peay. Parents weekend, and we just missed selling out the parents weekend game last year against an FCS team.
CMU. Homecoming
Miami. I'm able to confirm what the Optimist said weeks ago that the Miami-Halloween pairing created a lot of buzz on social media.

Not bad for a team that was 4-4 in the MAC last season....

Are season tickets through the roof at Central Michigan? They went 4-4 in the MAC an won their bowl game last year so I should expect a similar 47% increase like Ohio.

RE: OHIO FB: Sold out for the season?
Quote:ATHENS, Ohio - As the 2013 season approaches, Ohio Football season ticket sales have increased over 47%, with sellout demand imminent in several categories.

http://www.ohiobobcats.com/sports/m-foot...13aab.html

This is after setting the MAC revenue record last year with FB/BB tickets and raising game day prices for 2013.

The only way to explain this is the most simple answer.....the fanbase is growing. That is all there is to it. People now are getting pushed into season tickets to guarantee a seat for homecoming.

Quote:To purchase your football season tickets, click here or call 800-575-2287. Please be aware that sellout demand is anticipated in the Bobcat Family Package (75 remaining), Premium Family Package (90 remaining), Phillips Club (8 remaining) and Touchdown Club (4 remaining).

In just those 4 sections, how many season tickets is that?

Family Package (2500)
Premium Family Package (1000)
Phillips Club (800)
Touchdown Club (100)

Out of those 5 sections you have 4233 out of 4400 sold......

If there was going to be a year to set the program attendance record, 5 Saturday home games + Miami-Marshall should do it.

The question is can Ohio get 20k for Kent State and UMass mid week? It might happen this year with the season ticket sales buoying numbers.

Ohio Countdown To SELLOUT...8/15

Tickets Remaining:

North Texas 1581
Marshall 2072
Austin Peay 5019
Central Michigan 3846
Miami 3551
Kent State 5298
Massachusetts 5287

From the looks of it right now about 16,500 season+student tickets have been sold.

The student set aside is 6500 with the student average last year 5900 (including mid week games). If the students can turn out big all Saturday games will be sold out.

Kent State will probably hit 20,000 as a big MAC game with the students in town. UMass as a Black Friday game will be the most challenging to sell out. 17,500 for Black Friday would be good progress.
