Positive Ticket Sales For Beef ‘O’ Brady Bowl

Officials in the Marshall athletic department are pleased with ticket sales for the “Beef ‘O’ Bradys Bowl St. Petersburg” so far and are expecting a good contingent of Herd fans in St. Petersburg. The Marshall ticket office has sold around 2,000 tickets for Marshall’s second bowl game in three years.
“We’re very enthusiastic with that number,” says Associate Athletic Direct Aaron Goebbel.
There’s good reason to be enthusiastic. With about 2,000 tickets sold at a price of $55 per ticket, Marshall stands to collect around $100,000. C-USA rules dictate that schools get to keep revenues from ticket sales up to $100,000.
Marshall has another 600 tickets that are tagged for administrators, players, coaches and the traveling party which includes the marching band.
“Between what we’ve sold, the travel party and the other individuals who have bought tickets through the bowl we expect to have between 3,000 and 4,000 fans at down there,” said Goebbel.
Marshall was allotted 7,500 tickets for Tuesday’s game at Tropicana Field. Any unused tickets will be returned the Beef ‘O’ Bradys Bowl then redistributed at the bowl’s discretion.
The Herd will travel to St. Petersburg Saturday. Kickoff against FIU is set for 8 p.m. Tuesday.
