Tickets purchased in advance can be picked up all week at the Georgia Tech Athletic Association Ticket Office which is located at the corner of Techwood Drive and Bobby Dodd Way or at the Mewborn Field Ticket Booths on the day of game.
Fans can also purchase tickets in person at the ticket office or over the phone by calling 1-888-TECH-TIX, but are encouraged to buy them in advance as sell-out crowds are expected. Once all the seats have been sold, standing room only tickets will be made available.
Free parking for the Atlanta Super Regional will be available in the Alexander Memorial Coliseum lot across the street from Mewborn Field. You can access the lot via 10th street or 8th street. Once that lot is full, fans will be directed to Peter’s Parking Deck. To enter Peter’s Parking Deck, proceed south on Fowler Street from Mewborn Field and the road will end at the entrance to the deck.
The Yellow Jackets went 3-0 over the weekend to advance out of regionals for the first time in school history. Georgia Tech endured 13 hours and 22 minutes of total rain delays in its three games, but beat Boston University Friday night (5-1), Auburn Saturday night (4-1) and then BU in the regional final Sunday night (7-2).
Washington, meanwhile, came out of the Amherst (Mass.) regional. After losing to host-school UMass in the first game Sunday, the Huskies punched their Super Regional ticket with an epic 6-1 win in 15 innings over the Minutewomen.
Washington leads the all-time series against Georgia Tech 1-0, winning the only meeting between the two schools 2-0 on May 22, 2004. That came in the NCAA Tournament in Athens, Ga.
