Syracuse Chancellor Exploring Arena Options, Including New Venue To Replace Dome
Published January 14, 2014
ORANGE CRUSH: In Syracuse, Mike Waters noted SU "currently leads the nation" in attendance for men's basketball games, averaging 24,565 fans "through its first 11 home games." SU's game against North Carolina on Saturday "drew a season-high 32,121." But the school "draws well on the road, too." A survey of the nine ACC schools where SU will play on the road this season "shows higher-than-normal ticket sales at nearly every venue." Officials at Pittsburgh and Duke "reported sellouts for games against Syracuse, but that's not unusual." However, what "is unusual are the prices for tickets through third-party vendors." The lowest-priced ticket on StubHub for SU's Feb. 12 game at Pittsburgh "is listed at $76 for upper-deck seats," while courtside club seats "are over $600." Prices for tickets to the Feb. 22 SU-Duke game at Cameron Indoor Stadium "are starting at $912" (SYRACUSE.com, 1/13).
