Football Season Ticket Prices to Rise Slightly

Improvements for facilities and increasing coaches' salaries mean an increase in season ticket prices for football games this fall.

WVU Athletic Director Ed Pastilong said Wednesday that the price of both single game and season tickets for football will see a slight increase for the 2002 season.

Single-game tickets will rise $2, from $28 to $30 per game. A season ticket for all six games campaign this fall will cost $168, which is an $18 rise from last season. Season tickets in the end zone "Fun Zone" section can still be purchased for $120.

Pastilong noted that WVU will still have one of the cheaper ticket prices in the Big East. Most Big East schools are already at the $30 per game mark for individual tickets.

The mini-season ticket plan will also return this year, with two different four game options at $115 each.

The first includes tickets for Tennessee-Chattanooga, East Carolina, Miami and Boston College, while the second includes Tennessee-Chattanooga, Maryland, Syracuse, and Boston College.
