In an annual tradition, Villanova's football season ticket packages went on sale to the public this morning. The team is promoting a six-game home slate this Fall, as part of a revamped 12-game schedule this season, designed to advance the Wildcats' postseason chances after being left out of the field last season.
The six game slate includes tickets for the Homecoming game against Morgan State (October 25th) as well as a rematch with a Fordham Rams (September 6th) team that beat the 'Cats 27-24 last September in the Bronx. The Rams advanced to the second-round of the playoffs, where they were knocked off by national runners-up Towson.
Other games will include James Madison (September 20th), Rhode Island (October 11th), Towson (November 8th) and Albany (November 22nd).
Premium tickets in the sections closer to midfield will cost $100 for the season, while other plans will cost just $75 for the Fall season. Children are admitted at a lower rate as well.
This season, two new options are being presented by the Villanova Football club, for fans. Football Club Plan A costs $1,500 for the 2014 season and includes 5 Premium Season Tickets, 25 Group Season Tickets, 1 Rear Pavilion (Tailgate) Parking Pass and includes a $600 contribution to the Football Club. Football Club Plan B costs $1,000 for the season and includes 5 Premium Season Tickets, 15 Group Season Tickets, 1 Main Lot Parking Pass and a $400 contribution to the Football Club.
The two new options are seemingly designed to increase the ease of participation in the Football Club, who organize fundraising activities for the program, as well as a large-scale tailgate every Saturday in the Pavilion lot.
