LSU Football Season Tickets Sell Out For 10th Straight Year, Matching Sales Record
Published August 19, 2013
ANCHOR DOWN: Vanderbilt Associate AD/Sales & Marketing Steve Walsh said that the football program "went over 16,200 season tickets this past week." In Nashville, Jeff Lockridge notes VU last year sold "about 18,500 season tickets" and celebrated a nine-win season "for the first time since 1915." The school "raised season-ticket prices" after last year, but prices "remain the cheapest in the SEC for comparable seat locations." Coach James Franklin said, "It’s going to get up to where it was last year. I would have thought we would have been sold out by now. We’ve still got some time to do it." Lockridge notes selling out of season tickets would "involve reaching the mid-20,000s." VU football "last sold out of season tickets" in '96, when Notre Dame was on the schedule (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 8/19).
