Getting the season tickets before the schedule of the games have been released is a big gamble. But with this year’s season tickets being sold for last year’s price, it is worth every single penny! Season tickets for the Virginia men’s basketball season 2011 to 2012 are available on sale since August 12, 2011.
Getting season tickets in advance gives fans a chance to be more diligent with regards to their options and even more time for deciding whether to buy or not before the September 12 priority seating deadline. As of date, the Atlantic Coast conference has not yet determined nor announced the schedule for the games.
Other arrangements such as reserved parking and purchasing school memorabilia may be made in advance. Come game day, all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the game!
This will be the second consecutive season wherein season tickets are being sold before the office of the Atlantic Coast Conference has released the schedule of the basketball games. This season is expected to have 8 non-conference games and 8 more against their conference rivals. This brings the season tickets package to 16 games all in all.
Tickets on the lower level start at $405 along with an annual contribution to the Virginia Athletics foundation plus another gift for the John Paul Jones arena project. Courtside and all lower level seats are presold as season tickets. However, there are upper level seat price options for those with a smaller budget can choose from: $150, $200, $320 and $405. Staff, faculty and personnel of the University can enjoy a 20% discount on season tickets and can purchase as much as four tickets for their friends. There are also a few commercial tie-ins available this year. Addias, Gator Aid and the wellness company Nono Hair Removal Reviews are all offering discounted and in some cases complimentary tickets for online purchases via their respective websites. See the links given for details.
Some upper level season tickets may also require buyers to make a small contribution to the VAF and donate a gift to the John Paul Jones Arena Project as well. Those who do not have a credit card may also purchase the tickets using a 3 month payment scheme option.
Getting season tickets will not only ensure you have seats to the game but there are many other perks exclusively given to season ticket holders. Season ticket owners are eligible to join rewards programs, the chance to purchase reserved parking and even single game tickets in advance of game day. They can also transfer or return their tickets electronically or via an online route.
Ticket holders may also be invited to meet and greet the team at “meet the team day” at John Paul Jones arena. They may be notified either via email or messaging with regards to schedule updates and renewal process if they want to secure season ticket for the 2012 to 2013 season in advance.
