CHARLOTTESVILLE - The University of Virginia has established a record for football season ticket sales for the sixth consecutive year. Virginia has sold 31,714 season tickets for the Cavaliers' seven-game 2001 home schedule. Last year UVa sold 31,302 football season tickets.
"We are pleased with the sale to this date and feel we can exceed the 1,500 season tickets we sold from this point on last summer," said Dick Mathias, UVa's assistant director of athletics for ticket office management. "What that means is it's unlikely we will have single game tickets available for public sale for our home games with Penn State, Florida State and Virginia Tech this fall. The remaining sale of season tickets, combined with tickets already sold for those three games to Virginia Student Aid Foundation (VSAF) members and season ticket holders, could exhaust the supply of tickets for those games."
Single game tickets for the public are scheduled to go on sale July 16. Virginia's seven-game home schedule includes games with Richmond (Sept. 1), Penn State (Sept. 13), Duke (Sept. 29), Florida State (Oct. 20), Wake Forest (Nov. 3), Georgia Tech (Nov. 10) and Virginia Tech (Nov. 17). The cost of season tickets range from $145-$194 for all seven games.
The Virginia Athletic Ticket Office is located in Bryant Hall at the Carl Smith Center, home of David A. Harrison III Field at Scott Stadium, and is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Orders may also be placed by calling 800/542-8821 or 434/924-8821.
