UVa. taking ACC Championship ticket requests

The Virginia athletics department announced today it will begin accepting requests for ACC football championship game tickets.

The Virginia football team hosts Virginia Tech on Saturday, Nov. 26 at Scott Stadium. The winner of this game is the Coastal Division champion and will advance to the ACC championship game to face Clemson, the Atlantic Division champion, on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC.

In order to process tickets in a short period of time for the ACC championship game should Virginia advance, the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office will accept requests for tickets beginning Monday, Nov. 21 at 9 a.m.  The priority request deadline is Sunday, Nov. 27 at 5 p.m.

Virginia Athletics Foundation donors and Virginia football season ticket holders may request tickets by logging on to their account online at or by calling the Virginia AthleticsTicket Office at 1-800-542-UVA1 (8821) beginning Monday, Nov. 21 at 9 a.m.

Each participating school receives 10,000 tickets for the championship game. Tickets are available for $150 in club areas, $90 for lower-level sideline seats, $70 for lower level end zone seats, and $40 in upper-level seating areas. Virginia will set aside 1,000 tickets out of its allotment for UVa students to purchase for $35 and for use by the Cavalier Marching Band.

Ticket requests must be accompanied with a credit card number (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) for payment should Virginia advance to the ACC championship game.

All ticket requests will be allocated and seated in VAF priority point order first and then to season ticket holders randomly.  VAF donors and season ticket holders that donot request tickets during the priority period (Nov. 21-27) will not receive priority during the allocation and seating of tickets.  VAF donors and season ticket holders should request tickets through the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office.  Seats available for the ACC championship game to the general public are sold out.

In the event the number of ticket requests exceeds Virginia’s allotment, VAF priority points will determine limits on the quantity of tickets an individual may purchase. Football season ticket holders without priority points will be allocated in random order after all VAF accounts have been filled.

All ACC championship game tickets will be delivered on Thursday, Dec. 1 via UPS overnight shipping unless purchasers indicate they would prefer to pick-up their tickets at Will Call.  Will Call will be available at the Virginia Athletics Ticket Office in Bryant Hall starting Thursday, Dec. 1 at 9 a.m.  Will Call will also be available at the team hotel in Charlotte (Charlotte Marriott City Center) on Friday, Dec. 2 from 4-7 p.m. and on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.  Virginia Will Call at Bank of America Stadium will open at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3.
