Yes, all is well in the world of D-1 ticket marketing.
Not many teams would tell you to go to fewer games.
Most would try to push a full season package on you, even if that requires more money or more time than you possess.
We are extremely thankful for the support of our Miami Hurricanes season ticket holders, but we understand that a full season of tickets is not for everyone, and that’s OK.
So we created the new Two-Game Mini-Plan to give fans an opportunity to experience the two best college football events in South Florida.
I guess that beats “four tickets, four hot dogs and four Cokes”. But not by much. Then again,
1. Better seats are available at better prices through the Two-Game Mini-Plan than on StubHub and other broker sites for the FSU game alone.
2. Florida State tickets will not be available to the general public on a single-game basis.
3. We’re throwing in a complimentary Miami Hurricanes hat with every purchase (an added $30 value per plan).
Granted, Miami’s got its own set of special problems, starting with a pretty sorry stadium arrangement. But this is also the kind of crack in the foundation you get when it’s more important to kowtow to ESPN than it is to your fan base.
