BLACKSBURG – One week away from opening single-game ticket sales to the public (Feb. 8), the Virginia Tech baseball program presents its 2023 visitors guide to English Field at Atlantic Union Bank Park..
Gates and ticket booths at English Field will open 90 minutes before first pitch on game days.
TICKET PLANS & PRICING
Season Ticket Flex Plans are currently on sale for access to Tech’s five ACC home series against Boston College (March 10-12), Virginia (March 31-April 2), Georgia Tech (April 14-16), North Carolina (April 28-30) and Clemson (May 12-14).
Single-game tickets for Tech’s ACC home games will be made available on Wednesday, Feb. 8. Individual tickets are priced at $10 while youth ages 6 to 18 are set at $5 (children ages 5 and under are free). Virginia Tech students receiving tickets through the student lottery portal may also access home games for free.
As during previous years, all non-conference home games, including the Hokies’ non-conference weekend series, will remain free to the general public. Seating for all home games at English Field at Atlantic Union Bank Park – for both conference and non-conference games – is general admission in all stadium sections besides the section immediately adjacent to the first base dugout (reserved seating for visiting team ticket-holders only).
MOBILE & CASHLESS TICKETING
As introduced before the 2022 season, Virginia Tech athletics has transitioned to mobile ticketing for all athletic events in an effort to provide a more convenient, sustainable and secure gameday experience.
The majority of Tech baseball season tickets, partial plan and single-game tickets will be delivered digitally. English Field premium seating areas will remain distributed as physical tickets. Fans are strongly encouraged to download their tickets before arriving at the ballpark to guarantee the quickest entry experience possible. All walk-up ticket sales on gameday will move to cashless payment and will require a debit or credit card for purchase.
CASHLESS CONCESSION STANDS
In efforts to improve the flow and speed of transactions, English Field concession stands will remain cashless in payment this season and will require a debit or credit card for purchase. This practical adjustment, designed to minimize wait times, eliminates the exchanging and handling of currency as the overwhelming majority of concession stand purchases are already made via credit card.
Fans who do not have access to a debit or credit card should consider buying a prepaid card at Kroger in advance of the game. To those who wish to still pay in cash, the Hokie Shop will have a limited amount of gift cards available for cash purchase.
FAN-FRIENDLY CONCESSION PRICING & ALCOHOL SALES
After debuting at Lane Stadium during the 2021 football season, fan-friendly concession pricing will continue at English Field this season. Fans can expect to find classic gameday items like hot dogs, popcorn, nachos, Coca-Cola fountain drinks, and bottled water available for $3.00 each.
Additionally, select beer and seltzers will continue to be available for purchase at English Field. All fans will be required to show proper identification to purchase any alcoholic beverages. Alcohol will be sold until the start of the seventh inning on game day.
CLEAR BAG POLICY
Virginia Tech’s clear bag policy remains in place for English Field. This policy helps provide a safer environment for spectators and expedites fan entry into the ballpark.
