Kickoff times announced for three UVA football home games
As part of the announcement of early-season football television selections, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Thursday (May 17) the kickoff times and broadcast originations for UVA football’s first two home games of the 2018 season, as well as its Friday home game against Pittsburgh (Nov. 2).
Virginia’s first home game of the season, Sept. 1 vs. Richmond, will start at 6 p.m., while its second home game on Sept. 15 vs. Ohio will kick off at 3 p.m. Both the Richmond and Ohio games will be broadcast on ACC Network Extra. ACC Network Extra can be viewed via the WatchESPN App or by logging onto ESPN3.com.
The Cavaliers’ Nov. 2 home Friday game against Pittsburgh will start at 7:30 p.m. and be broadcast on ESPN2.
After the first three weeks of the season, game times and TV network selections will be announced weekly with the ACC’s television partners making their choices utilizing a 12-day advance notice beginning Monday, Sept. 10 (for games on Saturday, Sept. 22). ACC television partners also reserve the right to use a six-day selection notice on a limited basis during the season.
Single-game pricing for the non-conference games against Richmond (Sept. 1-Paint the Town Orange), Ohio (Sept. 15-Youth Day) and Liberty (Nov. 10 – Fan Appreciation Day) range in price from $15 to $50, while ACC home games against Louisville (Sept. 22 – Military Appreciation Day), Miami (Oct. 13 – Homecomings), North Carolina (Oct. 27 – Family Weekend) and Pitt (Nov. 2 – University Night) are $25 to $60.
Mini-packages provide savings off of single-game prices and allows buyers the flexibility to choose games that best fit their schedule. Fans are able to select packages in groups of two, three or four games. Fans can customize their package by choosing from any of the seven home games.
Pricing for the four-game packages range from $80-$200, three-game packages range from $60-$150 and two-game packages range from $40-$100 – pricing is 12-20% off single-game prices depending selected games and seat location.
Season tickets are also on sale for the seven-game home schedule, starting at just $99. There is a 20% discount available to UVA Faculty/Staff and UVA Young Alumni (graduating classes of 2014-2018) on the purchase of season tickets.
