Syracuse Football is seeing a huge boost in sales before the season is even underway, selling over 6,000 new season tickets.
John Wildhack, Syracuse athletic director, announced on Monday that the school had sold out of single-game tickets for the game against Clemson this season, Syrcause.com reports. He noted that the team’s success last season likely has to do with the surge of new season ticket holders, since last year, the team only sold 2,300 new season tickets.
“The best we’ve ever had is a little over 8,000 in 1998,” Wildhack said. “We’re thrilled and we’re thankful for the support of our fans, for their response to last year’s great season. … We’re sitting here in May. The number of 6,000 this early is tremendous.”
He added that if fans want to see Syracuse take on Clemson and are interested in a three-game plan, “you’re better served to act soon,” as fewer than 4,500 season tickets are available, including less than 300 in the first level.
Last season, the team went 10-3, which helped Syracuse garner the most wins since 2001, and they went on to win the Camping World Bowl. The 2019 season begins on August 31 where they’re set to play Liberty. Throughout the season, they’ll take on Maryland, Clemson, Western Michigan, Holy Cross, North Carolina State, Pittsburgh, Florida State, Boston College, Duke, Louisville, and Wake Forest.
