One week before William and Mary’s homecoming contest against James Madison, over 2,600 student tickets have been distributed for the game, according to the College’s office of Ticket Operations.
The Tribe Athletic Department instituted a new student ticket policy that required students to pick up a free paper ticket at several locations on Wednesday and Thursday. As 3,000 student tickets are budgeted for every game, this will allow the College to sell the remaining 400 tickets to a wait list that has been created for the event. The contest has been sold out to the general public since Oct. 7.
A student attendance around 2,600 would be the largest turnout of the season, topping the 2,378 students that attended the Central Conn. St. game on Sept. 12.
The no. 7 College will take on James Madison at 12 p.m. on Oct. 24.
