Season ticket renewals are out for the 2013 season, and for those Villanova football fans who received one, the University has quietly inserted a line item noting that the annual Delaware rivalry game will be played in Chester, PA this season. Like the last installment of the rivalry at Villanova in 2011, the school will shift it's home field to the larger and more convenient PPL Park in November.
The 2011 game was a good one, despite one of Villanova's weaker seasons in recent memory, and the home team was in it until the end. With a reported attendance of a few thousand more patrons than what Villanova Stadium can seat, the 'Cats found the motivation to try again at the Philadelphia Union home field.
Ticket renewals are due on July 31.
The PPL Park tickets will cost season ticket holders more than the other four games. With prices starting at $25 each, they are more than twice as expensive as the lower tier package for the other four games (approximately $11.25 each). Villanova claims that these prices are a 20% discount over the regular game day ticket prices.
The most expensive away game ticket for fans will be the November 11th game at James Madison at $38 per seat, while the August 31st game against Boston College comes in second at $30. Season ticket holders travelling to the Bronx in September can watch the 'Cats in action at Fordham for just $15, tied for the cheapest away ticket, along with Rhode Island.
The September 21st home game against Stony Brook, a rematch from last season's playoffs, will be the Parent's Weekend game in 2013. Homecoming is scheduled for Villanova Stadium on October 26th, against CAA rivals Maine.
