I don't think the location would matter with Michigan having more fans there than we did. That is one of the largest fan/alumni bases in the country. There will be a TON of Michigan fans regardless of where they play.

I think our ticket sales for the Capital One Bowl will be fine. God Knows the group of seniors that we have going out deserve for our fans to show up and support them.

Also, there are tickets on Stub Hub right now for a lot cheaper than face value. A lot of our fans are buying them through secondary sources.

I bought my tickets through the bowl because of 2 reasons, 1: I got them for cheaper and they will be about the same as the school would have gotten me. 2: I needed more tickets than I could have gotten from the school.

This is the kind of thing I was curious about. So it could be a case where ticket sales through the university aren't going very well but lots of fans are buying tickets to the game through other outlets.

I tried to get them through the bowl, but the website would only give me tickets on the Wiscy side.

So I gottem through the Gamecock Club. Hope they don't screw me with seats the way they did at the Outback Bowl.

They must have moved a lot of them, I got mine yesterday and they had plenty on our side.

Did you not assume the statement on the athletics website meant ticket sales weren't going well? Your post said as much!

This makes me think sales aren't going very well on our end. I hope it's not a case of fans not buying tickets just because they're unhappy about which bowl we're in. I know if I could afford to go, I certainly would.

So if you're in a position to go (financially and availability), please go and support our gamecocks and prove we are the best fans in the country.
no. I said on the poll I wasnt going.

This has a huge impact on the stadium breakdowns. When we played Nebraska a lot of the fans mentioned their love of Fla bowls for the weather.

Tickets sales are not great through the University and I think the reasons are detailed pretty well in this thread. Most Gamecock fans that travel to the bowls know there are better tickets for better prices through other parties.

Default Re: Ticket sales going well?

the best tix are given to local sponsors and they turn around and sell most of them or give them to customers...I used to order tix through the Gamecock Club, but I'm tired of sitting in upper deck corners or upper deck endzones(cap one has no endzone upper deck). You can get lower deck tix now for slightly more than face and probably as the game nears...a lot less. The school may not have always sold their allotment but it was obvious from any of the 10 bowls that I've been to that we had way more Gamecocks in attendance than tix sold by the GC.

Sounds like if I do go I'm better off buying outside the stadium!

It will be 2 nights in a hotel (probably $120 a night) plus gas to drive 6 hours down there, so if I can get some cheap tickets that sounds like a good deal to me. My birthday is the 3rd so that may be the gift to myself :)

Where are you guys staying and how much is a room? Would be cool to be near other fans!
