Virginia Tech says football games will have fans jumping to “Enter Sandman” this fall with plans for the stadium to be at full capacity.
Athletic officials started allowing students to buy season tickets but are taking it one step at a time. A final decision will depend on state and local restrictions, if there are any, when the first game kicks off on September 3 against the UNC Tar Heels.
Student season tickets for both 2021-22 football and men’s basketball are now available for purchase. At this time, student ticket orders are available for returning students only.
Tech Athletics remains hopeful that Hokie Nation can return to Lane Stadium and Cassell Coliseum in 2021 while keeping the health and safety of Hokie student-athletes and fans in mind.
In the meantime, athletics department staff is hard at work as sanitization enhancements in Lane Stadium are ongoing. They include the installation of over 200 hand sanitizing stations, contactless concession options, and preparation for socially distanced seating and lines.
For the first time, men’s basketball season tickets will be available for purchase at the same time as football. This includes a new football/men’s basketball combo package that provides students with a ticket to all home games except for basketball break games.
New this year is the inclusion of a Student Hokie Club membership ($25 gift) during the order process. Students will be asked to make one gift for their membership; thus students who have already made their $25 Student Hokie Club gift for the 2021-22 membership year will not be asked to make a second gift.
Football only tickets are available for $150, which includes all fees as well as a $25 Student Hokie Club Gift. Men’s basketball only tickets are available for $170, which includes all fees as well as a $25 Student Hokie Club Gift. A combo pack of football and men’s basketball is available for $285, which includes all fees as well as a $25 Student Hokie Club Gift.
The deadline to order for returning students is the final day of exams on May 14.
Tickets are available while supplies last, and limited quantities will be available for men’s basketball and the combo pack. Should capacity in either venue be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, student season-ticket holders and Student Hokie Club members will receive priority over the general student population.
Student seating in both Cassell Coliseum and Lane Stadium is now general admission.
