Season disappointment, donation levels and increasing donation dollars aside. It's time to reseat anyway. Attendance has been declining a little each year, many seats in random sections/areas go unused, rows of corporate seats in section 4 go unused more than they are used. Let's get the loyal, attend every game type folks down low between the baselines and the more casual, date night, company gave me a couple tickets type folks elsewhere. I wouldn't mind seeing us go back to having more "no donation required" seats available. We have hard-core fans that donate to the RAF that started buying single game/4 pack seats 10 or 15 years ago. The addiction needs to start somewhere.They can work this is in on a case by case basis. Given this past year and what's going on in the world, I am thinking demand may be a bit less than expected.
Remember we expected to be a top25 team with a strong possibility of having a run in the NCAA tournament. We didnt expect to be a team that imploded with major injuries and guys leaving the team with others discussing it.
Teams typically do this because of demand and desire to squeeze, oh I mean generate more revenue from their fan base.
Does this feel like the season to others?
We were suppose to do a reseat last year (every 3 years) but VCU chose not to in hopes of creating a higher demand this season with expectations of great success. It's not always wise to keep trying to predict the future. Who knows what the demand will be after next year, or the year after that.
