Virginia Tech’s Lane Stadium is expected to have empty seats this Saturday, the first time since 1998.

This weekend Virginia Tech fans will witness something that has not happened at Lane Stadium since November 21, 1998—empty seats. Athletic Director Jim Weaver believes Tech’s 93-game home sellout streak will end in the season home-opener against Western Carolina.  

With Virginia Tech coming off a loss to Alabama, there isn’t much excitement in Blacksburg knowing Western Carolina is up next. Fans are getting frustrated with ticket price increases (season tickets are $300/seat), weak home schedules, and a general decline in game-day experiences thanks to Weaver. With Tech opening its home schedule against the Catamounts, it is no wonder the team is struggling to fill a 66,233 seat venue. 

Last season Tech finished 7-6.  This season, Tech is 0-1 with very little promise. To fill those empty seats, head coach Frank Beamer needs to win games against big time programs, produce a better product, and most importantly, remove the likes of Western Carolina from its schedule.
