While this is awesome, this sucks for me. I tore my acl and meniscus in April and was not able to renew my season tickets for this year. I was hoping to be able to buy the garnet mini pack plus a single to UNC but it doesn't look to promising now to get decent seats...

I don't think we can. IIRC approx 55,000 is the max.

20K goes to students and the rest are held for visiting fans.

Then let's shoot for 55,000, hope the students pack out their 20K and maybe our fans can buy half the visiting team allotments.

WOW, this is tremendous! The economy is still troubling and we still managed to get back to pre-recession sales, that's really impressive! KEEP WINNING.

Really? I have no idea, but that just sounds very high. Our undergraduate student body is only 23,000 or so.

Pretty sure we don't expect 87% of our students to attend the football games.

Im pretty sure students only get 10,000-12,000 or so tickets. and honestly, the student turnout the last two years has been pathetic.

That's probably pretty close. I couldn't find the exact figure online, but the student allotment is about 14% of the seating capacity. Wiki puts it at 80,250 so 14% of that is 11,235.

Students get 10,000 I think. 20K is very high.

Default Re: 50K Season Tickets Sold

Just called the GCC to get some info on all of this. Now, I'm not sure if the guy I talked to knew exactly what he was talking about, but he was very polite and seemed very competent.

We have:

50,000 season ticket.
10-12,000 student tickets.
The rest are allotted to mini-packs, away fans, recruits. etc.

He said, theoretically we could sell 70,000 season tickets...but that wasn't likely.

Also, we have approx. 15,000 members of the GCC. Amazing that so few people make this thing run.

I don't find any humor in sustaining a pretty serious injury and having to miss four months of work... And undergo surgery and therapy and all that. Sorry but I can't seem to find it funny.
