Florida State football sees huge boost in ticket sales

According to a report in the Orlando Sentinel Friday, Florida State University has seen a huge spike in football ticket sales.

Hm, I wonder why that could be?

Jack Chatham, the school’s director of ticket operations, said FSU had 3,000 tickets sold at this time last year. This year? The Seminoles have already surpassed 8,000 (with only 50 cancellations).

Here’s what Chatham told the paper:

Everyone is pretty much keeping what they have or increasing, which is what we’ve seen. Most people that are increasing are maxing out what they can get at their booster level or they’re upping their booster level to get more tickets. It seems like people are ordering adding two, three, four tickets each. So it’s been very, very brisk.

FSU senior associate athletic director Monk Bonasorte also chimed in:

I think what the national championship did is, normally, people wait until after spring practice and wait until the summer to buy their tickets. I think people are realizing now those tickets might not be there.

Evidently, winning a national title gets fans excited for the next season. Amazing!
