Shorter Florida State’s athletic director on the strong possibility that FSU will sell less than 25,000 (non-luxury) season tickets in 2019:
This is sad:
According to FSU’s planned budget for the coming year, the Seminoles are projecting a decrease of more than $8 million in overall football ticket revenue — from over $23 million to around $15 million.
Coburn said the Seminoles are hoping to offset some of those losses with money they make from their season opener against Boise State in Jacksonville. Because of the way that deal is structured — it originally was a Florida State home game — the Seminoles are hoping to profit more that than they would from a normal game at Doak.
“Jacksonville tickets are going pretty well, and we hope to make up some ground, budget-wise, there,” Coburn said.
