Florida State season-ticket sales have seen a significant drop-off coming off last season’s 5-7 record, and that will have an adverse impact on the athletic department’s finances. As of Aug. 1, FSU has sold 24,636 of 40,000 available main bowl seats. For the more expensive Champions Club, which has been around since 2016, FSU has sold 2,951 of 6,000 seats. Warchant.com reported earlier this month that FSU season-ticket sales have declined every year since the 2014 season. FSU’s 2019-20 athletic department budget, which anticipated the sale of 25,000 season tickets, projected a decrease in ticket sales revenue from $23.445 million in 2018 to $14.995 million in 2019. Overall, the Florida State University Athletic Association’s revenue will drop from $84 million to right below $75 million. Seminoles Boosters also is feeling the hurt, as each season ticket requires a minimum donation to the direct support organization. -Tashan Reed, The Athletic, Read More
