Music City Bowl champions will host seven games in 2013
Feb. 5, 2013
Coming off of a historic nine-win season that saw the Commodores capture the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, Vanderbilt Athletics has announced season ticket information for the 2013 home football season.
After hosting six games at Vanderbilt Stadium last season, the Commodores will play in front of their home fans seven times in 2013. The home schedule includes SEC rivals Ole Miss, Missouri, Georgia and Kentucky. Non-conference opponents visiting Vanderbilt Stadium include in-state opponent Austin Peay, UAB and ACC foe Wake Forest. The highly-anticipated season comes on the heels of a year in which Vanderbilt Stadium was sold out three times - the most in any season since 1996.
For the 2013 season, seating changes will take place in Vanderbilt Stadium to increase our priority seating options.
The National Commodore Club has experienced an overwhelming interest in tickets in its seating area for the past couple years. Due to the growing demand, and in an effort to continue to build the football program, the NCC has expanded the seat offerings on the home side of the field that require a donation, in addition to the cost of the season ticket. The donation level for current NCC seats will also increase.
NCC seats include rows 1-39 in sections B-F and The Bridge. These areas require a per-seat donation, in addition to the $315 season ticket. Through your tax-deductible donation to the NCC, you become an NCC member and help directly support our student-athletes. NCC members receive benefits based on their giving levels, such as a season parking pass and bowl game ticket priority. A tax-deductible NCC donation covers ticket and parking benefits across all Vanderbilt sports.
A breakdown of the specific seat donation requirements can be found in the chart below:
Fans will still have plenty of options for seats outside the NCC seating area. Standard sideline season tickets are $315 for the seven-game home schedule. Additionally, fans can purchase tickets in the south end zone for just $160, which is less than $23 per game.
At the north end of the stadium, fans can purchase a season ticket on the grass hill for only $145. On the hill, blankets are welcome and the grass offers the ideal spot for young children to run around.
The ever-popular Family Plan is back for the 2013 season. The Family Plan includes two adult season tickets and two youth season tickets in the south end zone for just $455, which amounts to just $16 per ticket per game.
"We are excited to continue to offer the best ticket value in the SEC," Director of Sales and Marketing Steve Walsh said. "Between the north and south end zone offerings and the Family Plan, we feel that we are the best sports value in Middle Tennessee and across the state."
