Virginia Tech director of athletics Whit Babcock announced on Saturday that the Hokies will host a new opponent on a to-be-determined date in 2019 at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field in Blacksburg. This game will replace a previously scheduled road game at East Carolina on Sept. 21, 2019. Babcock also indicated that Virginia Tech will opt out of future games at East Carolina scheduled for the 2023 and 2025 seasons.
“We appreciate the patience of our fans as we have already begun the renewal process,” Babcock said. “We look forward to seeing Hokie Nation at Lane Stadium for our seven-game home schedule in 2019.”
For the second consecutive year, the Hokies will host seven games at Lane Stadium/Worsham Field with the season ticket price remaining at $400. In 2019, that every season ticket will also include a $25 concessions voucher per season ticket as a value-added benefit. The season ticket renewal process will be briefly suspended until the Tech Athletics Ticket Office has time to finalize details for fans which will be communicated when finalized.
The school will open with Furman and do have a home contest against upset-minded Old Dominion. Other home games include: UNC, Wake Forest, Pitt and Duke. The seventh home opponent has not been released.
