It sounds like the fan base isn’t on the same page with Greg McGarity when it comes to scheduling strategy. This notice went out this morning:
2012 GEORGIA FOOTBALL TICKETS
Beginning Tuesday, May 1st, the University of Georgia Athletic Association will offer William C. Hartman Jr. Fund patrons an additional opportunity to purchase tickets to three home football games and single non-renewable season tickets.
There is no order limit to the following games as all tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and assigned based on cumulative priority points to qualifying Hartman Fund patrons:
Season tickets (single-non renewable) $280 each
“ Single non-renewable season tickets may not be adjacent and will not be assigned with your renewable season tickets
September 1 Buffalo Athens $45 each
September 15 Florida Atlantic Athens $45 each
September 22 Vanderbilt Athens $45 each
The deadline to order tickets to these games is Tuesday, May 15, 2012.
Orders may be placed through the UGA Ticket Office online at www.georgiadogs.com by selecting the “buy tickets button” in the top right corner of the page. Select season renewals and then sign into your patron account and select football ticket sales option. Orders may also be submitted via phone by calling 877-542-1231 (M-F, 8am-4:30pm) or at the Butts/Mehre Ticket Office Window.
All renewable season tickets, as well as single game tickets to the aforementioned games ordered by March 31 will be filled. Priority requirements will be released on www.georgiadogs.com as soon as they are determined.
No doubt we’ll hear the economy blamed for drop in demand. I wonder how many years they’ll try to get away with that excuse.
