WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY

Recent reports of West Virginia’s slight decline in football season ticket sales compared to last year have been pushed across the media landscape, but the raw numbers of sales of the full six-game home package don’t tell the entire story. WVU figures to sell approximately 27,000 season tickets for the 2017 schedule, and as of last week had sold 26,300. That would be a drop of about 1,000 from the 2016 season, and continues a decline that has been evident over the past six seasons. Season tickets are priced at $365 each, with additional donations required to secure better seats. That’s just part of the picture, though. Those numbers don’t include sales of mini-packages, of which there are three different availabilities. The Mountaineer plan includes four games: East Carolina, Texas Tech, Texas and Oklahoma State, while the Blue Plan (Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Texas) and Gold Plan (ECU, Oklahoma State, Texas) offer three contests each. – Kevin Kinder, theet.comRead More
