ECU-UAB Game Sold Out

GREENVILLE, N.C. – East Carolina's Conference USA opener Saturday against UAB is officially sold out according to an announcement from the ECU Athletic Ticket Office. All available general public tickets for the Blazers' visit to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium were purchased as of Thursday afternoon.

It is the second sellout East Carolina has announced this week as the ticket supply for the North Carolina clash Oct. 1 was exhausted Tuesday afternoon.

The UAB contest is the third C-USA sellout for the Pirates inside 50,000-set Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium following the Tulsa and Marshall games in 2010. All four home regular season league tilts in 2009 were sold out with pre-expansion crowds of over 43,000, while East Carolina had two C-USA capacity crowds in 2008 and one during the 2007 campaign.

Tickets, which are priced at $40 for adults and $25 for youth age 3-12, are still available for Tulane (Oct. 29/Homecoming), Southern Miss (Nov. 5/Military Appreciation Weekend) and UCF (Nov. 19/Senior Day) and can be purchased at the ECU Ticket Office or on-line at www.ECUPirates.com.

    I'm glad the Pirates won, glad the game was sold out, but WITN's coverage of the game stunk. Never knew what down it was, how many yards to go, or the play clock. I don't know if the same company is broadcasting any more games, if they are, I hope they do a better job.

    Tony if I lived in Columbia my life would suck to. Remember if you need medical help tell them not to sen you to Greenville, because an ECU doctor may save your life. You need some help

    To JESSE: Spin it any way you like. A LOSS is a LOSS. ECU sucks and always will. It is a 2nd rate school. It is in the same league as Eliz. City State. NAH, ESU could whip ECU. ECU sucks. Period.

      Tony, I know you're just trying to get a rise out of everyone but that was a truly stupid comment.

    To TONY from Columbia. What arrogance. Playing at your home against the touted "best USC team ever"! We lead at half time and give you turn-over after turnover. We WILL get in BCS AQ conference. Then, bring it. Jesse

      The tickets that sold for $5 were the UAB tickets that they sent back.

    $40 is too much for a ticket to a college game. Wish it was more accessible to people who can't afford that. If we go to a BCS conference, tickets will be even higher.

      I agree with you. How about $60 to see the UNC game? Try bringing your whole family to that one. One day it will be cheaper to drive to Charlotte and see the Cats.
