Wow, those Charlotte tickets are expensive. I have new respect for their attendance considering how much it costs.

At ODU, there is a young alumni section in the end zone next to the student section (the worst seats in our stadium). You can get tickets there for $100. There is a family plan as well, buy 4 tickets for $169 each. But the rest of the stadium go for $199 a ticket. Obviously, that doesn't include the suites or the donations required for beer garden access or tailgating passes.

We all need them, now. 04-cheers

Not the trend you want to see. If the Miners don't start winning a few more than they lose, sales will only go down.

USM is usually the leader in season ticket sales with Marshall, ODU and UTSA doing well too.
Utep could start by offering the traditional family package to non traditional families. In today's society, not all families consist of Mom and Pop, son and daughter. It could be argued that their family package is discrimination against non traditional families.

Once again Utep is behind the times and we suffer because of it.

Family packs are usually just crappy seats they can't sell at a premium. I don't think they actually care if it's 4 friends or 4 sisters or whatever, do they? Who's checking to make sure only a traditional family is sitting in those seats? It's a section of the stadium at Marshall, the endzone corners. Not awful seats, but they aren't getting $35 a game for those so they offer a family deal on them. Pretty sure they don't care about the composition of the people that choose to purchase and use them.

I agree. No one is going to check at the time of purchase or at the time of entry into the stadium.

They absolutely do check. I know this because it happened to me the last time I had season tickets. I bought the family pack for my family which consist of me and my wife and two daughters. They would not let us in because my older daughter was over the age of 13 at the time and therefore, according to the ticket taker, could not use one of the tickets.

The following Monday, I went to the school and complained an it wasnt until then that they changed my tickets so that my daughter could attend the rest of the season.

However, they said the policy is for family packs was specifically for two adults and two children.

RE: Your School's Football Season Tickets Sold
Season ticket sales are not encouraging, we have only managed to sell 12500 by yesterday and since we have 1000 less to sell because of the deal with UNC we will have 500 left to sell instead of 1500. While i do not have any doubt in my mind about selling season ticks out i am concerned with the trend. I think we sold ~15k in 2013 and since then our numbers are dropping down slowly. I hope the stadium renovation/build will get more butts in the seats.

Our AD doesn't take into consideration how much it costs to take a family to a game. At the cheapest level, it breaks down like this for a single game:


4 GA Seats - $80
Parking - $20
Concessions - $30


In a city with the NFL, NBA, Nascar, Minor League Baseball, and Minor League Hockey you have to do better than that at least with ticket prices. Also, winning more than 4-5 games a year would help.

I assume that you could have had one adult and three children?
I do find it odd that a 13 year old is considered an adult for ticket purposes. You would think that the cutoff would be 18 or 19. The age at which (hopefully) the kids are out of the house.

I personally think it's very short sighted to have this policy. We started out with 4 family packs in the end zone for UTSA games with only 3 of the 16 being under age 13. We've gone from that to club level seating with higher donations and 4 parking passes.

The point is to get people in with inexpensive seats to get them involved and willing to pay more for better locations. You're only hurting yourself when you put petty restrictions on the family seats.
