TO: Fans, Friends, and Supporters of Georgia Tech Athletics
FROM: Dan Radakovich, Georgia Tech Director of Athletics
Thank you for being great fans and supporters of our Yellow Jacket program. Yesterday, Coach Paul Johnson and his staff put the finishing touches on a top-notch recruiting class. Today, we will begin the process to assist our fans in renewing and purchasing 2009 Georgia Tech season football tickets.
By the end of the week, we will have mailed copies of our 2009 Season Ticket Brochure to all of our football season ticket account-holders. This brochure will give you the information you need to renew, purchase or relocate your seats in Bobby Dodd Stadium. Although we are still a few days away from receiving our final 2009 football schedule (with actual game dates) from the Atlantic Coast Conference, we already know that our home slate is a blockbuster — with Georgia, Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Wake Forest and Jacksonville State playing on Grant Field.
Season Tickets for the 2009 season are priced at $260.
The renewal process is available to you on line, instantly – and you can choose to purchase additional season tickets at the same time. Whether you choose to go on-line or to fill out the perforated paper form that will come with our brochure and mail it back to us, we hope that you will find the process easier and more accommodating than ever.
Perhaps the biggest breakthrough in our ticketing process this year is the opportunity to purchase season tickets in all available sections of Bobby Dodd Stadium immediately! By going on-line to www.ramblinwreck.com/tickets, fans can select seats and make their purchase instantly! You will receive immediate e-mail confirmation of your purchase. This opportunity for instant selection and purchase has not been available in past years.
Please tell anyone and everyone interested in Georgia Tech football for 2009 that this is the time to jump on board. The opportunity to select and purchase season tickets has never been easier and more immediate.
When current season ticket holders have an opportunity to review this year’s materials, you will notice that we have made some modifications to the pricing structure of our TECH Fund sections. As we studied the trends related to supply and demand within the various sections of the stadium, we felt it necessary to “tweak” our TECH Fund donation levels. Sections with a lower season ticket occupancy were adjusted downward as much as $75 per seat. Our high-demand sections will see a slight increase, maxing out at $25 per seat. In all, about 47 percent of our TECH Fund seats will see the nominal increase, and 53 percent will either decrease or not change at all.
Once again I’d like to call upon our current season ticket holders to “refer a friend.” You are our best sales force. Tell your relatives, your neighbors and your colleagues how easy and affordable it is to become a Georgia Tech season ticket holder. You will even find a space within the brochure to give us information for referral. Better yet, you can simply direct them to the web site for quick and easy season ticket selection and purchase.
Georgia Tech football remains the most economical and entertaining major sports opportunity in Atlanta. With a great home schedule, one of America’s most successful coaches in Paul Johnson, an inspiring nucleus of newcomers and returning players, a dynamic new look and sound inside Bobby Dodd Stadium in 2009, what could be better than joining the Jackets right here…right now!
