2019 Football Make Your Own Mini Plan and Flex Tickets on Sale

Anybody else planning on taking advantage of either of these options this year?

I know the schedule is pretty bad, but the prices are pretty good.

Yeah I got the 4 game plan this year.

I can't help but also rant. Called yesterday and was told that only season ticket holders could purchase at 10 a.m. and that we can choose our own seats. Well luckily I read the emails that were sent out this morning about the plan because I noticed that Hokie Club members could purchase at 10 a.m. The website is honestly awful (server is down so it's not working) and you can't choose your own seats but the page where you order gives you two options "best available" or something else that was hard to understand but implied you could choose. But then the two buttons you click on to select your tickets are the same so there's no way to know and in the end you're randomly assigned seats anyway. I would share a screenshot but the server is down.

Am going to email the ticketing department once server is up because honestly our website is one of the worst I have used for purchases.

Edit: Here is a screenshot with the buttons at bottom (that give you wildly different seat results). Good luck knowing which is what.

I'm shocked. Well not that shocked.

I'm curious for cost comparison...what are season tickets going for this year? I'm not talking about the per seat donation, just the total face value.

They are $400. I don't think we have the individual game face value info is up to know how that compares to adding up all the face values.

Has anyone who bought flex tickets heard about how we pick which games?

Something was supposed to go out today, August 5th, but I've yet to hear anything.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Have you tried the following? Curious what seats you get to choose from if it does work for you. I imagine it isn't the same selection as single game tickets, since some of the seats for ACC are listed at $105.

Gee, I wish there were a few more steps!

Said no Hokie ever

uva - the taint of the ACC
XL Jockstraps 34 - Ascots 31
#15 Straight

Never should the first step be "wait". This list is a bit confusing.

That said, I ordered the flex pack and think it's genius. It is perfect for those of us who want to go to a few games and go with different groups. I hope this is a hit because it is my new default choice.

Seat selections were pretty good. There were a few lower bowl left, including a few west stands, and a lot of decent sections in the upper east stands. Plus, they can be PDF or delivered to your Apple Wallet. I chose the latter and think this is very convenient (no paper tickets to keep up with).

First step should be "Join TKPC"

The Pitt tickets are starting at $70. Meanwhile, Pitt home games are going for $12 on StubHub.

Granted when you factor in StubHub fees that comes out to about $70

Looking at the website, me thinks there will be very very light crowds this year at home

I was thinking about going to 2 or 3 games so this package is well suited for me.....

....but I just told my wife we could get better and cheaper Tix on the open market than this. I got three in the front row for Miami last year for $40/ea.

And I'm not sure I want to commit right now to a VT/Pitt game in November. Pretty decent chance I'm regretting that purchase.

Take away the Marshall game in 2018 because it shouldn't hurt the numbers...
2018-ave 64,280 in 6 games, #22 in FBS
2017-ave 63,214 in 6 games, #24 in FBS
2016-ave 63,043 in 6 games, #26 in FBS
2015-ave 60,824 in 6 games, #28 in FBS

With Bud retiring after this year I'll be very disappointed if the November games aren't close to capacity.

An undefeated September would also help ticket sales immensely.

I know the schedule is weak, but NC State has this type of non conference schedule almost every year and they manage to be top 25 by the end of it... Before falling back to earth.
