Stay Connected Explore Ticket Packages

The excitement surrounding Virginia Tech football this season is at its highest in recent years. Going into year three of the Brent Pry era, expectations are rising after winning the program's first bowl game since 2016. The Hokies will host six opponents on Worsham Field in 2024, providing fans with great opportunities to visit Lane Stadium

With over 66,000 fans attending five sellouts last year, the hype around Hokie Nation should continue into the upcoming season. One of the best ways to experience the electric atmosphere of Lane Stadium at each home game is with season tickets. Join die-hard supporters in the stands for every action-packed matchup in Blacksburg and never miss a moment. 

Tech's home opener will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7, versus Marshall after kicking off the 2024 campaign on the road in Nashville against Vanderbilt. This contest against the Thundering Herd and head coach Charles Huff will be a rematch of the Hokies' Week 4 road matchup in Huntington, West Virginia, last season. Pry and company will look to extend their home opener win streak to three games. 

While Tech returns the highest percentage of starters in college football, Marshall, on the other hand, welcomed 36 new additions in its 2024 class. Of those additions, 22 players are on offense and the highest-ranked transfer portal class at the Group of Five level. With 15 new players at skill positions, the Herd's revamped offense will feature an Air Raid playstyle under new offensive coordinator Seth Doege. 

Attending as many games as possible is very important to a lot of Tech fans. To maximize the value of your money and become an integral part of the home field advantage, 540 Zone season tickets are a great deal. The package includes two seats in the Upper South End Zone for every matchup, all for $540. This special value offer is a cost-effective way to attend the season opener and watch another rematch against a Big Ten opponent. 

Looking ahead to another familiar nonconference foe, the Scarlet Knights will make their way to southwest Virginia on Saturday, Sept. 21, after hosting the Hokies in New Jersey last year. Rutgers is led by head coach Greg Schiano, who received a contract extension this past offseason. Following a victory in the Pinstripe Bowl, the program's offensive prowess is powered by running back Kyle Monangai and dual-threat quarterback Gavin Wimsatt. The duo accounted for 16 touchdowns on the ground in 2023 and will provide a good early test for the new-look defensive line operating under defensive coordinator Chris Marve

Nonconference matchups are a great opportunity to gauge the level of competition Tech will face once ACC matchups start. Take advantage of Fan4Packs deals and get four tickets to bring the family or trio of friends for a Saturday filled with football. 

Weekends are always better with football, yet few things can compete with the history of Thursday night football in Blacksburg. The Hokies have a rich history when playing on Thursdays, boasting a .634 win percentage across 116 games. Keeping with the trend of opponents faced on the road in 2023, Boston College will come to Lane Stadium on Thursday, Oct. 17. Tech's offense scored its second-highest total of the season during the 48-22 victory over the Eagles. If the program can recapture the same magic after defeating BC, which saw the team average 43 points over its final four games, the momentum would be ideal heading into a potential ranked matchup two weeks later. 

Add some flare to your weekday with single-game tickets to the Thursday night matchup. Feel the ground shake during Enter Sandman and cheer on the Hokies under the bright lights and moonlight sky, with tickets starting at $60. 

Making another trip north on I-85, Georgia Tech will travel to Blacksburg once again after the previous meeting in 2022. On Saturday, Oct. 26, fans are encouraged to come out and enjoy the homecoming game. Are you planning on bringing a large group to homecoming weekend? Group tickets are a great value for groups of eight or more. 

Looking forward to one of the most anticipated games on the schedule is the Week 10 matchup against Clemson. The Tigers will return to Blacksburg for the first time in nearly four years. Currently ranked No. 16 by ESPN, it could present a ranked vs. ranked matchup if the Hokies find their way into the Top 25 after receiving praise from media outlets in the offseason. Plenty of movement has occurred since the public ticket on-sale, and the virtual ticket assistant offers another option to get the most out of your gameday experience. 

Lastly, to close out the regular season, Tech will host Virginia for the Commonwealth Clash presented by Smithfield on Saturday, Nov. 30. This all-time rivalry is a staple matchup across the state and will be the first time Tech hosts the Commonwealth Clash at full capacity since 2018. In his inaugural clash matchup, Pry saw his team bring home the Commonwealth Cup after a dominating 55-17 victory in Charlottesville. This game will be a spectacle before gates open, and tailgate packages are available to take your gameday experience to the next level.
