I was told it only held 2300. Looking at the pictures, I think 2300 is closer to the truth. I can't find any official number.

Not only are there four good teams, but one is Florida State. My bet is that there are 2000 Florida State fans in the general area.

Some tickets are staring to pop up on some re-sale sites. StubHub had none last I checked.

It seats 2,200.


"The new venue seats 22-hundred, has a state of the art scoreboard and locker rooms."

Looking at the pictures, that is what I thought. So if they hold 300 tickets for the tournament officials, sold a few hundred to the public (I bought 8 for each night, and could only get four for Friday in the center sections. The rest are end-zone seats), that would leave about 1600 for the schools. The players, coaches, staff and administration account for about 100/school. That leaves 300 for the schools to sell to their fans. So my guess is that VCU's, sold based on Ram Ranking, will go pretty fast.

Well, I was travelling(In Tallahassee, FSU country) when I received the email from the group and I looked at it but couldn't buy them at the time. A saw VCU had tickets and snagged some this morning but I just got off the phone with the ticket office and now even they are out of tickets.

PS. talking with a lot of FSU people last week, they are in full football mode so I don't know if they purchased the majority of the tickets because that weekend is the same weekend of the FSU/Florida game
