There's no real benefit to it. There is virtually no way it will sell out. While many have bought season tickets as a show of support, including myself, they could easily just show up and pretty much sit where they want to. A newer, smaller stadium (downtown or OCS) would obviously make season tickets more desirable. In UAB's case tickets-sold is a much better barometer for all attendance-related questions...

As long as you can buy a General Admission ticket "at the door" or use a free city purchased ticket when you arrive, and you can sit anywhere in the first 30 rows of Sec 10 & 11 in the west stand (50 yd line area), there is little incentive to buy season tickets unless you just want to make a fan support statement.

The size of Legion Field is a factor, but the best seats in both stands remain reserved for most of the 1600 folks who are apparently not interested in UAB football. On game day, these seats are used on a first come-first served basis no matter how they got their tickets.

Yes legion field in general is a factor, i would think we could double or triple those numbers if we were getting ready to move into a new stadium either on campus or even a new one across town. .

If it is a terrible number, why would you put it on a public message board, given the situation. A perception of low interest affects recruiting, further sales etc.

Rep points mean nothing. I'm sure he is well placed to get the number, but it makes no sense to publicize a bad number.

Anything under 5k is disappointing. Especially considering all the advertising we've done lately.

I would wait until the final numbers are in before passing judgment. Many have not purchased yet and these numbers do not reflect most of the cooperate season tickets that count as well. I personally would not have posted those numbers as stated above. It does no good.

Many companies' fiscal year is from July-June so, perhaps(hopefully), corporate ticket purchases will pick up substantially starting in July...

Once we start winning, the sales will take care of themselves anyway. The product on the field is going to be fun to watch!
