To the surprise of perhaps nobody, Florida State is seeing more people decide to buy football tickets for the upcoming season. That is what happens when a team wins a championship.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Florida State has sold about 5,000 more season ticket packages to fans than they did a year ago. Florida State sold approximately 3,000 season tickets around this time a year ago. That number is up to 8,000 season ticket orders according to the report.
“Everyone is pretty much keeping what they have or increasing, which is what we’ve seen,” Florida state director of ticket operations Jack Chatham told Orlando Sentinel. “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.”
Chatham believes fans are jumping at the opportunity to lock up season tickets now, instead of waiting until later in the summer to do so as they have tended to do in past seasons. That is probably a wise decision considering the home schedule lined up for the Seminoles in 2014.
Florida State will host Clemson, Notre Dame and Florida. All three will be spotlight games for the defending ACC and BCS champions and helps make one of the more attractive home schedules for Florida State in a few years.
