Order 2012 Football Season Tickets
A limited number of season tickets are now available for a new hillside seating area planned in the open end zone of Vanderbilt Stadium.
Only 500 tickets, each costing $110 for the Commodores' six-game home schedule, will be sold for the hillside, which will be located beneath a new huge Jumbotron video screen near the north end zone. The berm will feature general admission tickets.
"We are extremely excited about the addition of the hillside seating in the north end zone," Vanderbilt Director of Sales and Marketing Steve Walsh said. "This area will add to the charm of Vanderbilt Stadium and be the perfect spot for families to come and enjoy Commodore football."
The berm project, designed to provide a park atmosphere, will start after the Commodores stage their second annual Black & Gold Spring Game on Saturday, April 14. Kickoff for the featured attraction of Vanderbilt's spring drills, which is free to the public, is 6 p.m.
The hillside and new Jumbotron are just two of several enhancements coming to the historic on-campus stadium complex about to enter its 90th year at the corner of Natchez Trace and Jess Neely Drive.
Other improvements coming to the stadium include a new lighting system and installation of synthetic turf on the Dudley Field playing surface.
The hillside will be a first come, first serve area. Though lounge chairs or coolers will not be allowed, fans can bring blankets to place on the grass. All ticketholders will have access to existing restrooms and concessions in the east and west concourses of the stadium.
Hillside tickets are currently available by calling (615) 322-GOLD (4653) or by visiting the Vanderbilt Ticket Office in McGugin Center during regular business hours. To reserve your seats online, click here. The ticket office is located at 2601 Jess Neely Drive.
