The Marshall University ticket office is getting ready for football season in the fall.

The ticket office wrapped up renewal ticket sales for those who had tickets in the past.

Aaron Goebbel, associate athletic director for external affairs said this week the ticket office is in a transition period for ticket renewal sales.

“We’re kind of in that little bit of a transition period where individuals who had them (tickets) last year had the opportunity to renew them,” Goebbel said. “The deadline was last Friday, so if they didn’t renew them, those tickets have kind of become clear and open.”

Goebbel said the demand for more seats has become imminent with the growing success of Herd football.

“We had so many current season ticketholders either add new seats, purchase new seats or change seats. So we will start making those calls to those individuals,” Goebbel said.

At the Green and White game, April 25, the ticket office will have its Choose-A-Seat promotion at Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

“That morning starting at 10 a.m. we’ll open up the football stadium,” Goebbel said. “Customers who want to buy a season ticket for the first time can kind of come in that day, and we don’t mark seats that are open anymore. But we will have customer service representatives on hand.”

Goebbel said people will have the opportunity to buy seats on the spot that day.

“If you have never bought season tickets and you want to come in, you can come in and say, ‘hey, look I like this area, I like this section, how much is this, how much is that,’ and we’ll have staff on hand to tell you,” Goebbel said.

Goebbel said Marshall is not where it needs to be or where it should be with the success the football team is having, but he is also not discouraged.

“We have great core fan base,” Goebbel said. “But we need people out in the peripheral and out in the exterior to get more involved on a season ticket base because season tickets are our bread and butter (revenue standpoint).”

Players also sell football tickets.

“Our football players get involved,” Goebbel said. “A lot of our football players do internships and practicum work so people in the community will see them at the local pool, or down at Pullman Square out there selling their own tickets to their own games.”
