Sponsored by The Southeast Regional Training Center (SERTC): The SERTC is critical to the success of the Virginia Tech Wrestling program. Our goal is to continue to grow the SERTC and add at least one more athlete/coach this season. In order to do so, we need all Hokies to get on board! Your donation can make a huge difference.

English Field at Union Park is in the middle of a complete rebuild, one that will rejuvenate the stadium and the Virginia Tech baseball program. To take advantage of that, Virginia Tech is going to start charging for admittance to conference games.

The athletic department announced the changes on Wednesday. While Virginia Tech will charge for admittance to ACC games, the department will not charge for people to attend the Hokies’ non-conference games.

Here is a breakdown of Virginia Tech’s ticketing guidelines…

Adult season ticket: $90 ($6 per game)

Adult single game ticket: $10

Youth season ticket: $45 ($3 per game)

Youth single game ticket: $5

Children 5 years and under single game ticket: Free

Virginia Tech students will get into games for free as well, if they have their valid student ID with them.

In addition to normal seating, Virginia Tech is selling Hospitality Tables, which sit along the first base line. Each table costs $1,000, which includes a $640 donation and season tickets that cost $360. Each Hospitality Table includes four seats, access to the Hokie Hospitality Pavilion, and the ability to purchase alcoholic beverages. There are 20 tables available for purchase.

The Hokies will also sell private suites at English Field at Union Park, directly behind home plate. Each suite costs $12,500, including a donation of $11,400, and season tickets and parking, which cost $1,100. These suites include 12 outdoor and covered seats, a parking pass, a refrigerator and television inside the suite, access to the suite level hospitality area, Wi-Fi and an improved concessions menu, including alcoholic beverages. There are four suites available for purchase.

Alcoholic beverages will only be served inside the Hokie Hospitality Pavilion, which can be accessed by suite or Hospitality Table guests. No alcoholic beverages will be permitted in the Family Friendly Terrace or the chairback seating areas.

The grand opening of the new English Field at Union Park will take place on April 14, when Virginia Tech takes on Louisville.  That game will take place at 7pm on the day of the Spring Game, and there will be fireworks. Of course, that will not be the first game played at the new stadium. The Hokies open their season on Feb. 16, but will play their first game at the new English Field at Union Park on Feb. 27 vs. Radford.

  1. Ticket cost is too high. By contrast, a UVA ticket is $6 for tuesday/wednesday games, $8 for others. I hope I’m wrong but I think tickets will be hard to sell.

    1. $7 and $9 based on 2018 prices for UVA, so not that far off. Their season ticket prices are also pretty high in comparison, with the exception of general admission season tickets which are $75 for adults. Some sections also require an athletic contribution per seat.

      A big chunk of the crowd will need to be students to fills this up. For most other categories, I don’t think the season ticket price is all that onerous.
