Ticket sales for the Pinstripe Bowl have been going well said Matt Wells, West Virginia’s assistant athletic director for marketing and sales.
Wells said today only a few hundred were left to be purchased through the school.
Just over 3,200 have been sold so far, but he anticipates the team’s 5,000 ticket allotment to be accounted for by the Dec. 29 game at Yankee Stadium.
Another 1,200 to 1,300 will be used for the marching band, players families and the team’s official travelling party, accounting for around 4,400 tickets.
“The fact that it’s drivable, helps keep sales go a little bit longer” said Wells. “Normally you see the vast majority of your sales coming in that first week after the invitation because of travel plans, booking flights. The fact it’s drivable, removes that sense of urgency from our fan base."
There are other places to buy tickets of course, including the bowl's website: www.pinstripebowl.com along with multiple third party ticket agencies, including StubHub.
"We still have several hundred left, but not a huge number," said Wells.
