Expecting Fans to Buy Mini-Packs is Unfair

With WVU making single-game tickets available to the public today, one important game is only available through mini-packs.

Morgantown, WV – Earlier today, West Virginia University officially made single-game tickets for home games available to the public. Fans are now able to go to WVUGame.com and secure their chance to see the Mountaineers in action this fall.

While most of the games are available for individual purchase, only one was made unavailable unless the purchase of a mini-pack is made. That game is WVU’s first home game against Pitt since 2011.

While this may be a smart decision by WVU to sell more tickets, it simply is not fair to the people of the state of West Virginia. In one of the poorest states in the nation, most fans cannot afford to purchase mini-packs for their entire families.

Though this game will almost certainly be a sellout, the decision is going to keep a lot of fans at home that would’ve been there otherwise. Taking away the chance for some of the most passionate fans in the country to attend the school’s most important rivalry game game is something that will not sit right for many.
