As college football bowl season officially starts today, East Carolina University didn’t make it to an official bowl game this season but that hasn’t stopped them from selling tickets to one.
East Carolina’s “Pirate Club” is selling tickets to something called the “Virtual Bowl” and the proceeds will be going to charity:
East Carolina University Athletics wants to show the college football world the passion of the Pirate Nation, even in a “bowless” year for the university. The Pirate Club is excited to announce the 2011 Virtual Bowl. Our challenge will be to sell more tickets than our bowl-bound Conference USA opponents and bowl-bound teams from the Big East. The Virtual Bowl appeal will go through December 23.
Tickets for the Virtual Bowl are $50 a piece. Virtual Bowl tickets purchased will be tax deductable and donors will receive one priority point for every ticket purchased. All proceeds from the Virtual Bowl will go towards the “Step-Up To The Highest Level Campaign”
So, if you’re an East Carolina fan and want to tell the kids that you went to the first Virtual Bowl, then I suggest you pick up your ticket before they sell out….
