Lane Stadium Sold Out For Beamer's Home Finale
Handful of Club Seats Remain For Saturday's Game vs. North Carolina

BLACKSBURG – The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced Tuesday that all tickets returned from North Carolina’s allotment have been sold out for head coach Frank Beamer’s 180th and final game as head coach at Lane Stadium on Saturday.

Only a handful of club seats are available for Saturday’s contest. They can be purchased via phone at (540) 231-6731, toll-free at (800) 828-3244 or in person at the Ticket Office located in Lane Stadium during regular business hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (weekdays).

Fans are encouraged to arrive early to help celebrate the career and contributions of Beamer. Hokie Walk will take place at 9:45 a.m. on Beamer Way with kickoff slated for noon.

Based on feedback from Hokies’ student-athletes, head coach Frank Beamer has blessed his players’ wishes to wear a black helmet and uniform combination for Saturday’s game vs. North Carolina. Several team leaders expressed their logic for wearing the black uniforms with orange numerals in Beamer’s home finale. The black helmets will feature the VT logo on one side with No. 25 that Beamer wore as a player in orange on the other side.

Saturday’s game also marks the 19th annual Hokies For the Hungry Food Drive. Sponsored by Tech’s Marching Virginians and the New Life Christian Fellowship in Blacksburg, the goal for this year’s event is to collect 65,632 cans of food, or one can from every seat in the stadium. Senior running back J.C. Coleman is the honorary chairman of the event.

All donated items will be distributed via the Montgomery County Christmas Store in Christiansburg, a non-profit organization that provides holiday shopping opportunities and food items for income-qualified residents. Fans of both teams will see drop-off locations for non-perishable goods at locations around Lane Stadium.
