The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets had a successful season in 2014. The team won its fourth ACC Coastal Division championship in the last seven seasons and won the Orange Bowl over Mississippi State after going 11-3.
It will come as a surprise to nobody that the team has started seeing a big surge in season ticket sales for the 2015 season. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Yellow Jackets’ athletic department reported a twelve percent increase in season ticket sales for the upcoming season with more than 33,000 projected sales from fans, students, and staff to come.
This is the highest total since the 2009 season, following head coach Paul Johnson’s first season at the school. The team has also sold out all of its club seats and suites for the first time in school history.
“There’s definitely a lot of excitement,” deputy athletic director Brett Daniels said. “We wanted to take advantage of that, build on that and hopefully continue to grow that.”
The team has sold out its October 24 game against Florida State and is expected to sell out the November 28 home game against Georgia. The team also has big games in Bobby Dodd Stadium against Virginia Tech and North Carolina.
The Yellow Jackets are hoping for another big season this year and it looks like their fans are hoping for one as well. Georgia Tech opens the season on September 3 when they host Alcorn State.
