So far, Cal’s season opener at AT&T Park is a tough sell

Thursday, August 25, 2011

This could be embarrassing. And we’re not talking about Cal’s cupcake game against tiny imagePresbyterian College. Rather, the Golden Bear faithful aren’t ponying up to buy tickets to the Sept. 3 season opener against Fresno State at AT&T Park. So far, Cal’s ticket office has sold only 7,500 tickets compared to Fresno State’s 12,000, the Oakland Trib’s Jonathan Okanes says.

Worse, still: Under terms of the two schools’ agreement with promoters underwriting the so-called “neutral site” game, Cal must sell tickets equaling $657,000 in revenue in order to qualify for its guarantee of $1,050,000 for the game. It’s still $175,000 short. Fresno State, on the other hand, easily sold enough tickets to get its $900,000 guarantee.
