Apparently Homecoming tickets are $50 for ECU and many alums are not happy and have stated they'll go to tailgating but not the game.

This is a great opportunity to build the fan base and have a good atmosphere. I hope we can create enough of an outrage for the athletic department to rethink this !

I have season tickets and my ticket shows $42.92. So $50 doesn’t seem out of line. Season tickets cost me $250 plus $15 fee. So $265 /6 games. And you’re at $44 a game. Is that End Zone seats?

Wow, unreal all the Homecoming festivities and someone is going to complain about a ticket for $50, really. A true fan would not think twice. Days of free tickets are over if we want to continue paying good coaches and staffs. Takes money to run a lst rate program!!!

And now you can appreciate my frustration at the increase of my Green Wave Club/Seat License cost for two season tickets (football and basketball) increasing from $500 to $1400.

Like golfnut said, a Tulane alum should pony up the 50 bucks and enjoy Homecoming.

$50 is ridiculous

This team and our attendance problems, tickets should be $20 tops

$30 end zone. $40 sideline is max.
$50 for end zone is out of control.

Sell out the end zones at a cheap price and charge a premium for the side line & glazer etc. Instead our end zones and corners are embarrassingly empty. I don’t have a problem paying $$$ for premium seats but casual fans don’t want to pay a premium for a product that has proven to be inferior for decades.

Sort of a side note... our Tulane 15 year Reunion party is this Friday at GRITS bar :roll: ... tickets are $60. Plus, it's another $25 just to register. $85. Yeah, screw that.

ECU won’t travel. End zone tickets should be $20 to encourage alum attendance. A guy with a wife and two kids is looking at $200 just on tickets. Should be no more than $25 a ticket for EZ seats.
