Vanderbilt has best football season ticket deal in SEC
Vanderbilt season tickets are now on sale, and you can click here for more information, including a little video pep talk from Coach Bobby Johnson.
I know, I know, you probably don't live in the Nashville area or if you do you can't make all six games.
Wake up and smell the coffee! Vanderbilt offers an incredible season ticket deal for the SEC, especially if you have children under the age of 18.
Let's say, for example, that you want to take your spouse and two children to see the Commodores play just two games, against preseason Top 10 Ole Miss and perennial powerhouse Georgia. Tickets are $50 each to SEC games, so that'll cost you a total of $400.
But a Family Season Ticket costs $289 for two adult and two youth tickets to ALL SIX Vandy football games this season. That's an average of $12 per ticket. So instead of tickets to two games you could save $111 by buying a family season ticket and then individually sell the tickets you don't want to use. Believe me, outside of the Western Carolina game you'd have no problem unloading any of these tickets (Ole Miss, Miss State, Georgia, Kentucky, Georgia Tech).
The tickets are located in the end zone, which is the only drawback. But you still can't get a deal like this anywhere in the SEC. Heck, you can't get season tickets anywhere these days without making a large donation to the athletic department.
But Vanderbilt fans can still pick up the phone or go online and get home tickets for the entire season. An individual season ticket is $185 ($31 average) or $109 for the end zone ($18 average). Individual ticket prices are $50 for SEC games, $40 for Georgia Tech and $20 for Western Carolina (if you buy that one individually instead of picking one up through stubhub or outside the gate, you're stupid).
We all want Vanderbilt to be a consistent winner in the league, and if that ever happens, you can kiss season ticket deals like this goodbye. So take advantage of it while you can.
