I am of the opinion that Ladd Pebbles Stadium is only marginally, if at all, a better venue for attending a football game than is Legionaire's Field. I have decided that since Jan Nation is building a new stadium, maybe I'll give it a shot next season. With that in mind, I went to the Jan Nation site to see where visiting seating would be, what the parking situation would be like, etc. Imagine my surprise when I looked at their seating options and found that their seats are more than twice the price of a comparable seat at The Vet. Would you like a seat at The Vet in the lower bowl, between the 30's, under the deck? That seat will set you back 200 bucks this season. Would you like that same seat for a Jan Nation game? Try $ 410 a seat with a MINIMUM 3 year commitment. These seats come without the protection from the elements provided by an upper deck, and are for an inferior on the field product. This is just one example. Want a club seat, get ready to part with $ 1000, again 3 year minimum, as compared to $ 600 for stadium club seats at The vet. The same type of disparity in prices in present across the board.
Why post this? Sometimes it's good to be reminded just how good you have it. TROJANS get to enjoy a superior on the field product for about 1/2 what Jan Nation will pay. It's no wonder we have seen a surge in season ticket sales this year. Quality football at a very reasonable price means I can afford an extra ticket to take grand kids to the game. Now, I just have to find somebody around me who wants to give up a seat. Oh well, probably not happening anytime soon.

Great Value is one of my main reasons in being a season ticket holder. I did get an MBA at Troy, but I got my BS elsewhere. The cost of season tickets and the hoops you have to jump through to get them at elsewhere prevents me from even trying. I have heard much discussion, that purchasing season tickets at elsewhere is mostly now done by brokers. Good luck improving your seats ever unless you donate big. I love Troy. I have had my current seats for a while now and I don't want to give them up. I expect the price of those tickets to go up at some point but I'll worry about that later. I'm thankful for the bargain I get with Troy season tickets.
