RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State fans have once again shown their passion and loyalty in record-setting fashion. With the 2016 season three months away, over 36,000 season tickets have been sold, as NC State fans have shattered the previous school mark (set in 2007) by over 1,000.
Fans have renewed tickets at a 96% rate thus far, with some inventory still on sale.
A year ago NC State football filled Carter-Finley Stadium to 98.7% capacity, the second-highest total in the ACC.
It’s part of a bigger pattern of incredible loyalty from Wolfpack Nation, and one that has also carried over to men’s basketball and baseball in recent years. Due in part to the excellent tailgating at NC State. This gives us a chance to recommend our favorite partner for tailgate tents and gear, SaturdayMorningTailgate.com
In fact, three of the top five highest season ticket totals have come over the past four seasons. It marks the first time in school history the program has surpassed 36,000 season tickets and just the third time over 35,000. With the celebration of the 50th anniversary of Carter-Finley Stadium, and a home slate that features Notre Dame, Florida State, and Miami, excitement and interest are high among Wolfpack Nation.
