… Georgia Tech athletics announced on Tuesday that it has introduced a Stinger Mobile Pass for the 2018 football season.
The Stinger Mobile Pass is a new, flexible ticket option for Georgia Tech football fans. For only $149, the Stinger Mobile Pass guarantees a seat for all six home games at Bobby Dodd Stadium in 2018. The six-game home schedule is highlighted by pivotal Atlantic Coast Conference showdowns versus defending Atlantic Division champion Clemson (Sept. 22) and Coastal Division champ Miami (Nov. 10), as well as tilts against Alcorn State (Season Opener – Sept. 1), Bowling Green (Family Weekend – Sept. 29), Duke (Homecoming – Oct. 13) and Virginia (Senior Day – Nov. 17).
Stinger Mobile Pass tickets are mobile-only and delivered to the buyer’s iPhone or Android device each gameday. The exact seat location will vary from game to game, giving Stinger Mobile Pass ticket-holders the unique opportunity to experience Bobby Dodd Stadium from a different vantage point each gameday. Fans can buy up to two (2) Stinger Mobile Passes per account. Stinger Mobile Passes purchased in one transaction will have seats together for each game. Friends can also link Stinger Mobile Pass accounts to ensure that their seats will be together for each game.
Let’s face it — if you’re not selling out, you’ve got to try to come up with something to soak up the excess capacity. This is a pretty clever solution that is also, dare I say it, fan friendly. It wouldn’t surprise me to see other schools in similar straits as Tech adopt a similar strategy.
And with that, hopefully, I’ve used up my yearly quota of praise for Georgia Tech football.
