Thread: Number of tickets allocated for visiting team

  1. #1

    Default Number of tickets allocated for visiting team

    One subject I have seen brought up since Georgia Southern moved up to FBS is how many tickets would have to be given to a visiting P5 to get them to come play in Statesboro. Well it looks like that number is only 3,000 to get a Big 12 team since that is number there conference has set for visiting teams.

    Due to a change in Big 12 Conference policy pertaining to the number of tickets allocated for visiting teams, the University of Oklahoma announced today that it will be putting 1,000 new season football tickets on sale.
    The Big 12 reduced the number of seats issued to visiting teams from 4,000 to 3,000, thus creating the new inventory.

    Maybe that will be offset by games which don't have so much demand for opposing tickets-like Gag State. 23 will do them-every time.

    It would be nice to get back to handling the SBC before we get a Big 12 to come.

    That's the number that THEY give visiting fans, not the number it will take to entice them to want to come to play at our house.

    They cleared room to give THEIR fans more tickets. The more we can give their fans when they come here the better off we would be.

    It would be nice to be able to give them about twice that and have room to have another 5K Southern (or curious potential Southern fans) fans.

    Yes that is the number they give visiting fans. That is also the number of tickets they get on away conference games. If they want to send more than 3,000 they will buy single game tickets thru the Eagles ticket office if Eagle Fans do not buy them first.

    The Eagles will sell every ticket to the game in either case and the chances would be good that season tickets sales would go up for the Eagles because true Southern fans that want to attend that game would have to buy season tickets to ensure they got a ticket to the game.

    The more Eagle fans in the stands than several thousand fans of the other team would be better for Eagle Nation.

    What does a P5 ticket allotment have to do with GS and the Sun Belt? Absolutely nothing. UGA gave us what 6K last time, after previously giving us 8K and 10K. Tech gave us how many, yet we were 1/3r of the crowd. State, well you know, we bought up all the allotment and obviously many more. But you really think ULL, Texas St, etc needs to give us 3k? They only need 300 at most, even then we're probably sending most back.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    More tickets for a P5 visitor means zip in the grand scheme of things. Appy has less seats than we do. That excuse is a Bakerism
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    Very good point!

    App is who we should be comparing ourselves to. Every time I see them doing something good, I think "THAT should be us."

    I hope they beat UGA-and get Kirby Smart fired. He's one of those guys I knew I would absolutely hate from the first glance. Complete weasel.

    If we gave 3,000 tickets to a visiting team that would be half of the mid-deck...
