GREENVILLE, N.C. - For the second time in as many home games this season, East Carolina's Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium will be at full-capacity next Saturday when the Pirates open defense of their Conference USA title against UCF. In addition to announcing its second consecutive sell-out of the 2009 season, the ECU Athletics Ticket Office also disclosed there are no general public tickets remaining for ECU's nationally-televised contest against Virginia Tech on Thursday, Nov. 5.
Less than 700 tickets remain for the Rice game Oct. 17, an inter-divisional matchup that is also tabbed as Homecoming Day. Tickets, which are priced at $40 for adults and $25 for youth 12-and-under, are still available for UAB (Military Appreciation Day) and Southern Miss (Senior Day), scheduled for Nov. 21 and Nov. 28, respectively.
All Conference USA away game tickets are available for the general public to purchase at this time. Individual ticket prices for league road battles include $32 for Marshall, $24 for SMU, $30 for Memphis and $35 for Tulsa, which features a Sunday night rematch of last year's C-USA Championship game. All away game seat assignments are based on the Pirate Club Priority Point System.
NOTE: A limited number of student tickets for the Sept. 26 UCF game will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis to full-time fee-paying ECU students starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22. ECU students can view the student distribution schedule at www.ecu.edu/athletictickets for all remaining home games.
