The better seats definitely cost more than they “should.” That’s the case at every school (basketball and football) that’s competing at a high level. Go buy good season tickets at a middling P5 football program and see what you have to pay for the donation and tickets. That’s part of the process everywhere. This isn’t unique to VCU.I just pay the minimum amount for season tickets. The cheapest seats locations aren't that bad, considering the Stu is small, and I'm happy. Sure I can probably get em cheaper buying individual game tickets but I consider it supporting the program, plus it's just easier to have tickets to every game in the same seats.
I'd be mad too if I donated way more though, as the better seat areas are very pricey.
