2015 football season tickets on sale to general public
Five bowl teams, including national champion Ohio State, headline Tech's slate

BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech athletics department announced today that 2015 football season tickets are now on sale to the general public.

Season tickets are $350 per ticket and can be purchased by logging on to hokietickets.com, calling the Tech Athletics Ticket Office at 1-800-VA TECH4 or visiting the Athletics Ticket Office during office hours (9 a.m.-5 p.m.).

Those who purchase season tickets receive numerous benefits, most notably a significant savings over individual game ticket prices. Season ticket holders also will have exclusive access to a personal season ticket service executive and the option to purchase single-game tickets prior to the general public (including extra Ohio State individual game tickets if those become available). Other benefits are:

• The opportunity to attend Lane Stadium for personal/family holiday photos

• Participation in the Ballena Select-A-Seat event (for those who order prior to May 1)

• A chance to be honored as the “Season Ticket Holder of the Game” throughout the season

• The option to put personal HokieVision messages on the video scoreboard on a first-come, first-served basis.

There is no guarantee that individual game tickets will be available for sale by the athletics department this season. The Hokies’ football schedule features six home games, including five against teams that went to a bowl game last season. The defending national champion Buckeyes headline the schedule, as Ohio State comes to town for a game against the Hokies on Labor Day. Currently, the only way to attend this game is to purchase a season ticket.

The Hokies return 16 starters from last season’s squad, including five All-ACC players. Tech’s defense returns eight starters from a unit that ranked third nationally in both sacks per game and tackles for a loss per game. The school’s streak of 22 straight bowl games is the second-longest streak in the nation.

Head coach Frank Beamer, who missed the Military Bowl after undergoing throat surgery, is ready to get started and encourages Tech fans to return “home” this fall. “This is Home” is a theme for the Hokies this season, as the Tech athletics department recognizes that Virginia Tech is much more than a university, and Lane Stadium is much more than a building.

“This place is special, and the people are special,” Beamer said. “What we’ve all gone through and how everyone has stepped up … I appreciate people. I appreciate our administration. I appreciate the people around us.”

On another note, Tech has designated the Ohio State game on Labor Day as its “Orange Effect” game. The Furman game on Sept. 12 will be the “White Effect” game along with Military Appreciation Day. Tech will recognize the 2015 inductees into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame at halftime of this game as well. The Duke game on Oct. 24 will serve as Homecoming and be the Hokies’ “Maroon Effect” game.

The athletics department wants to remind people to attend the annual Maroon-Orange Spring Game this Saturday at 2 p.m. Admission is free, and fans can pick up a 2015 football poster. Also, Hokie Village, the pregame festival that made its debut last fall, will be opening at 10:30 that morning and closing at 1:15 p.m.
