Boise State tickets for season ticket holders first
Some Washington area Virginia Tech fans hoping to attend the Hokies' meeting with Boise State at FedEx Field next season might be out of luck.
There will be a public sale through the venue for the Hokies-Broncos game. But the universities will have their own sales, and Virginia Tech will make its tickets available to season ticket holders and members of the Hokie Club before any leftovers are made available to the public, meaning it might be hard for some who want a guaranteed seat with other Hokies fans.
If there are no extra tickets after Virginia Tech's priority sale, there may be no tickets available to the public by the university, according to a Virginia Tech ticket representative. Virginia Tech's ticket allotment for the Boise State game was not known as of Friday afternoon. FedEx Field, the home of the Washington Redskins, has a capacity of more than 91,000.
"There's no guarantee we're going to put this thing on sale to the public at this point," the Virginia Tech ticket representative, Jack Chatham, said Friday in a telephone interview.
This is the same system Virginia Tech used to distribute tickets before last season for the Hokies' game against Alabama in Atlanta's Georgia Dome.
Tickets for the Boise State game will not be included in the season ticket package, but season ticket holders and Hokie Club members will have the first access to purchase that single-game ticket. The first choice on seats goes to those with the most points, which are based on factors such as the amount of money donated to Virginia Tech, the number of years they have been a season ticket holder and how many tickets they purchase.
The season ticket renewal and order form is to be posted online at hokietickets.com in February and a hard-copy application is likely to be distributed in March. The deadline for renewal and orders is May 1.
The Hokies-Broncos game is currently scheduled to be played on Oct. 2, although ESPN has looked into moving the game to Labor Day.
