The 2016 Syracuse Orange football season and the Dino Babers Era kicks off on September 2 with a home game against Colgate. Now we know exactly how much it'll cost to be there as SU Athletics has unveiled the single-game ticket prices for all but one home game.
This is the first opportunity to buy individual-game tickets for all of Syracuse's 2016 home dates, including the Nov. 19 Florida State game. Group purchases generally result in a 15 percent savings for most games with prices starting at $15 for non-conference games versus Colgate (Sept. 2) and USF (Sept. 17), and $20 for Atlantic Coast Conference matchups with Louisville (Sept. 9) and NC State (Nov. 12).
Single-game tickets for all home games except Florida State go on sale June 21. Tickets to watch the Orange and Seminoles are tentatively scheduled to go on sale July 26. Tickets start at $20 for non-conference games, $25 for the Louisville and NC State games, and $30 for the Virginia Tech (Oct. 15) and Florida State contests.
Of course, season tickets are also already available and you can purchase them here, by phone or by visiting the Carrier Dome box office. The deadline for 2015 season ticket holders to renew their seats is April 29.
The interesting takeaway to note is that overall single-game ticket prices are down. Whereas non-conference games vs. Rhode Island and Central Michigan started at $25 last season, this year's non-conference games start at $15. The most expensive ticket on last year's slate was LSU ($45) while the most expensive ticket this year (Virginia Tech, FSU) starts at $30. After last season's horrendous attendance numbers, it looks like SU is getting serious about try to put butts in seats for Dino's boys.
