Georgia football fans have continued to line up for season tickets to attend games at Sanford Stadium, and they’re finding availability at away games particularly difficult. That’s especially the case for the Bulldogs’ highly anticipated season opener against Clemson in the Duke’s Mayo Classic in Charlotte.
It took a Hartman Fund score of at least 24,001 points (read that as dollars) for UGA donors to qualify for some of the 27,000 tickets allotted for the Bulldogs for the Sept. 4 game, according to a report circulated this week to season-ticket holders. If they were seeking seats in the desirable club section of Bank of America Stadium, it took a cumulative score of 90,140 just for the right to buy them.
“Demand is definitely far exceeding supply on that front,” said Ford Williams, Georgia’s executive associate athletic director for major gifts and the CEO of the Georgia Bulldog Club. “I think that’s just a testament to our fan base and how fervent they are and loving to travel places to watch the Dogs play. It speaks highly to the matchup, too, of course.”
The Magill Society is undefeated. Just ask me — forty years of season ticket purchasing and I still managed to miss the cutoff.
By the way, looks like Ford Williams has made a seamless transition from Matt Borman.
