FSU Not The Only School With Season Ticket Problems

This came across my RSS reader today…

CLEMSON — The billboards advertising Clemson football season tickets have made their annual appearance on highways leading to the campus.

Generally football in this state sells itself. But this year, the school could use the promotional help.

If any of the other ACC bloggers come by here, how bad is it at your school? Let me know in the comments.

    I sure would like to see an article like that written on FSU. I want to know how many members Seminole Boosters has, how much money it raises in a year, how many season ticket holders FSU has, and how much money they have lost on this economy. We seem to be able to find this information on other schools but FSU seems to be very general when talking about numbers and budgets. I am a Seminole Booster and season ticket holder but I am just curious how many season tickets FSU sells in a given year (and how many they sold back in 2000-2003 before our attendance started to decline), and how many of those tickets are bought by Seminole Boosters and how many are bought by the general public. Does anyone here have a breakdown?

  2. Lane stadium is small than Doak and Death Valley, but Hokie Club had no problem selling out of season tickets for 2009. The problem they’ve had is selling out of indoor club level seats. Those cost an extra grand a year and are still available.

    @2… that doesn’t surprise me, you Hokie fans are a bit nuts. :)

    We’re doing better than last year but not by much, which is depressing considering Georgie, Clemson, and VT are on the home schedule. We’ll see though. We’ve got a simple problem of being a small engineering school in a rural state. A lot of alums live out of state. If every GT alum living in GA came to the Dodd, we’d have 10k empty seats.

    Same state, different school, same story:
    South Carolina is having trouble selling tickets, too. It might have something to do with the massive unemployment rocking the state. Maybe.

    FSU should have joined the SEC. How big would it be to watch FSU play Georgia,Alabama,Auburn,Tenn etc….All would be sellouts!
