No fans to start W&M BB season
I think we should present Spencer Milne a blank check ASAP ... and I’m only using slight hyperbole as the way he would lead us in this area would more than pay for his salary and restore some much needed, and deservedly lost, credibility.

I agree with this and said as much to another poster in direct message.

I think it's yet another miss in a long line of misses from this ticketing department.

Especially the part about locking in 19-20 prices for 21-22, and whether or not one virtual ticket accounts for a single season ticket or for an account. (In case it's not clear elsewhere, one virtual locks in the whole account)

Agreed. Poor communication and execution. I briefly glanced at this email and moved on not realizing its impact. It's curious to me that there is not a level that includes a Flo Sports subscription in a virtual ticket.

You are right - burying it an email with a lot of other data is horrible marketing! Also you might think they could now figure out to send an email with this as the subject line to all MBB season ticketholders from last year announcing the Virtual Ticket!!

RE: No fans to start W&M BB season
I'm on board. I just bought the Pride Package. I'm in Texas, generally make it back to one game a year if I'm lucky. Season ticket promises don't mean a thing to me, but I'm starved for Tribe content and I love that they are doing this with the bonus apparel, chalk talks, zoom meetings, etc.

From the sounds of the thread, it seems like there hasn't been a huge rush of sales on these packages. I really hope they deliver a quality product for this in the first year. I think if they can put together a good program, this is something that can be replicated for future, non-covid years to increase engagement with out of state fans. With the amount of alums that are no longer in the greater Hampton Roads area, this type offering is critical to donor engagement and growing the fan base.

After being initially skeptical, the clarifications that we got here and from direct email have me getting the Pride package. I'm using the cutout for my son and then getting 2 more for his W&M grandparents to "sit" on either side of him. Bonus Xmas presents here.
