I just want to say that if Tulane wants more fans in the stands.....Don't charge 50 bucks per ticket in the family section. Winning will bring more fans but charging 50 bucks for the cheap seats will keep people away. I know today was homecoming but come on man. I wanted to take my kids and some of their friends but I would have paid over 500 dollars for tickets. I grew up a fan and I have had season tickets for years but because of work schedule no season tickets the last few years. 50 per ticket come on Tulane not all of us are doctors, lawyers and politicians. :roll:

They’ve done some wide shots of the stadium. There’s a lot of unsold tickets by the look of it

Well I know there could have been 10 more people there but on at 500 dollars before food, parking and a trip to the gift shop.

I agree. It’s five of us. This is my first year I did not re new. I was waiting for the team to improve its play to go to a game.

Strongly Agree. Offer some family packs or $25 tix in the end zone for homecoming

I didn’t go today specifically because of the ticket prices for today. Jacking up prices for anyone but a major draw opponent is ridiculous. $200+ for 4 of us, UBer, food and drinks etc. watching at home.

Way back in the summer I asked "what's up with the $50 ECU tickets?" The response was "That's Homecoming." I immediately said "way to try to rape your alumni." How'd that work out, Troy?

$50 isn't really a lot of money for FB tickets. With that said, they are not in a normal position where you can increase prices. You have a fanbase that has been burned.

It is a lot when Tulane needs to build a bridge for potential fans to cross. Two bowl games since 1998 and programs that fail to compete this includes baseball and basketball. I will say this as a fan for over 30 years sometimes i wish my father would not have brought me to games starting in the mid 80s. Now that last statement is only a joke. I think it is anyway lol

And get into the ACC when realignment comes in 23/24, or before . Or settle for the Big 12 ....

I agree with everything in this thread. Once I found out it was $50/ticket, there was no discussion. Those ticket prices need to be super affordable for everyone until we prove we can consistently be competitive and win some games.
I don't yell. I don't scream. I don't argue. I just hit 'em over the head with a bottle.

And if you decide to pay the $50 or more for a ticket, you’ll also get to stand in concession lines for a large part of the game. Yulman has to have the most inefficient concession operation I’ve ever seen. Too few concession workers, all of whom move like snails. With Willie’s time eating Scrum Ball, you can easily miss half a quarter on any trip to the concession stand.

I guess it depends where you’re sitting. I had no problems with concession lines in the Westfeldt. I missed one play while I was “in the can.”

I was in the Westfield Club. The north end concession was a disaster most of the game. The lines did lessen once people started leaving the game as it got colder. At which time the concession promptly ran out of hot coffee.
