Miami football ad: 'Go to fewer games'

Palm Beat Post

The Hurricanes have long been derided for poor attendance, and it sounds like they're giving up.

Miami football often has trouble filling up Sun Life Stadium on fall Saturdays. There has always been a number of reasons: small alumni base, a venue that's far from campus, plenty of other things to do in sunny South Florida, etc. Now the Hurricanes appear to have a solution for fans: don't bother.


An ad in South Florida newspapers tells fans to "go to fewer games." The Hurricanes are offering two-game ticket packages for the home contests against Florida State and North Carolina. The 'Canes seem to have their fanbase pegged:

If you identify with any of the following statements, then the Two-Game Mini-Plan may be right for you:

1. I like exciting college football in rocking, sold-out environments.

2. I want to see the Hurricanes play the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles and the preseason top-25 North Carolina Tar Heels.

3. I'm not so sure I can make it to the other 5 home games.

The mini-plan starts at $108, and includes a free Miami hat, which the Hurricanes say is a $30 value.
