Football: Single game tickets go on sale Monday

Single game football tickets for the 2003 Commodore schedule go on sale to the public Monday, June 30.

Vanderbilt has seven home dates this fall. The Commodores open the season with Ole Miss and Heisman Trophy candidate Eli Manning on Saturday, Aug. 30. Vanderbilt also hosts UT-Chattanooga, Sept. 6; Auburn, Sept. 13; Georgia Tech, Sept. 27; Navy, Oct. 11; Georgia, Oct. 18; and Kentucky, Nov. 15.

Vanderbilt also offers season ticket deals until the Ole Miss opener. Season packages range from $115 to $162 per adult.

Tickets for the four SEC games plus Georgia Tech are $30 each, while the other two non-conference games are $22 each. Youth tickets (17 and under) are available for the UT-Chattanooga and Navy games at $10 each.

Single game tickets are available on-line at, or by calling (615) 322-GOLD in the Nashville area and toll free at (887) 44-VANDY to those residing away from the Nashville area. Orders will be taken in person at the McGugin Athletics Center Ticket Office from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday – Friday.

Besides Ole Miss and its highly touted senior quarterback Eli Manning, the Vanderbilt home schedule includes a number of compelling matchups vs. attractive opponents.

Auburn, under the direction of Tommy Tuberville, returns a host of key starters and is rated No 1 in the nation by some preseason magazines. Georgia is the defending SEC champion and is expected to contend for the crown again this year.

Kentucky, with new head coach Rich Brooks, returns two of the SEC's most exciting players, quarterback Jared Lorenzen and receiver/returner Derek Abney. Georgia Tech was one of the best teams Vanderbilt faced last year before injuries derailed their high expectations.

The homecoming opponent is Navy, while former Commodore Head Coach Steve Sloan returns to Vanderbilt Stadium as the Director of Athletics at UT-Chattanooga.
