Single-game tickets for Appalachian State University’s six regular-season home contests this fall go on sale Wednesday at 9 a.m.As has been the case for each of the past several years, sales are expected to be brisk when the single-game tickets go on sale and reserved seats for some games could sell out as early as Wednesday, particularly the Oct. 22 homecoming matchup versus Samford and the Oct. 29 Black Saturday showdown versus Georgia Southern.
Single-game tickets cost $25 for adults and $15 for youth (ages 3-12) for the Mountaineers’ home dates versus North Carolina A&T (Sept. 10), Savannah State (Sept. 17), Chattanooga (Sept. 24) and Western Carolina (Nov. 12) and $30 for adults and $20 for youth (ages 3-12) for the much-anticipated duels with Samford and Georgia Southern. A $2 Kidd Brewer Stadium enhancement fee is added to each ticket.
Appalachian’s remaining allotment of tickets for its five away games will also go on sale to the general public on Wednesday. ASU’s allotment for the Nov. 19 regular-season finale at Elon is completely sold out and its allotment for the Sept. 3 season opener at Virginia Tech is fast approaching sellout status. With the strong possibility that Appalachian’s allotment of Virginia Tech tickets may sell out prior to any becoming available to the general public on Wednesday, the best bet for those wishing to purchase tickets from ASU’s VT allotment is to buy Mountaineer season tickets or a mini-season package as soon as possible.
