Tickets for the November 9th Battle on the Midway between the Syracuse Orange and San Diego St. Aztecs are going to be extremely sparse. I know a lot of folks have asked about availability and it looks like the first round of tickets are officially on sale for alums.

SU Athletics is offering a travel package to alumni that includes seats at the game and a whole lot more.

They are, um, not cheap.

The cheapest package (Bow and Stern Package) will run you $1,200 per person and includes a baseline seat and ticket to an "exclusive" pre-game party.

The Port and Starboard Package will run you $1,500 per person and gets you side court seats for the game, a ticket to exclusive pre-game party and a game day program (the real value of this package).

You really start to get the goodies when you sign up for the Premier Package, which, for $2,200 per person, gets you...

  • Premium seats for Battle on the Midway game
  • Access to Thursday Media Day and Shoot Around on the flight deck of USS Midway
  • One ticket to Thursday Battle on the Midway Luncheon
  • One ticket to exclusive pre-game party
  • Commemorative Battle on the Midway autographed basketball (one per ticket)
  • Game day program

And finally, if you're Mr. or Mrs. Monybags, you can sign up for the Elite Team Travel package. For a whopping $4,999 per person, you can get:

  • Travel with the team on charter aircraft from Syracuse
  • Overnight accommodations for 2 guests in deluxe room at team hotel
  • All ground transportation and transfers
  • Premium seats for Battle on the Midway game
  • Enjoy a meal with the SU coaches and team
  • Access to Thursday Media Day and Shoot Around on the flight deck of USS Midway
  • One ticket to Thursday Battle on the Midway Luncheon
  • One ticket to exclusive pre-game party
  • Commemorative Battle on the Midway autographed basketball (one per ticket)
  • Game day program

These options are available first-come, first-serve and obviously tickets are limited. If you're holding out hope to get a ticket to this game without getting one of these packages, being in the military stationed in San Diego or having a parent who is a CEO at one of the game's sponsors...good luck.
