Vanderbilt Tickets Selling Well Ahead of Tennessee Showdown in Nashville

The Tennessee Volunteers are not strangers to playing in big time environments on the road this season. With sellout games against LSU, Georgia, and South Carolina under their belt, the Vols have been put to the test on the road.

This is exactly how the final game of the regular season against Vanderbilt is shaping up for Saturday night.

According to Vanderbilt’s official ticketing website, the significant majority of the stadium has been sold. While there’s no exact percentage listed on the ticketing site, there look to be only a couple handfuls of seats remaining.

Only two of the 22 sections in the stadium have tickets remaining. And of those two sections, there only look to be a few seats located in the corners.

As seen in the photos above, tickets for the game between Vanderbilt and Tennessee are becoming increasingly hard to find.

Now, of course, the official site is not the only way to find tickets. Third-party sellers, such as Ticketmaster, still look to have about 700 tickets on sale for the game on Saturday night in the Music City. Ticketmaster’s site has about 15 sections with availability out of the 22 in the stadium.

Tennessee’s fans have traveled well this season as the Volunteers attempted a run to the 2022 College Football Playoffs. However, with the playoffs out the door, two losses in the last three games, and a season-ending injury to quarterback Hendon Hooker, it’s interesting to see how Tennessee fans will travel – despite it being just a few hours away from Knoxville.

Vanderbilt’s FirstBank Stadium holds 40,350 spectators, according to the University’s website.

Three of Tennessee’s four road games this season have been announced sellouts:

  • Tennessee @ Pittsburgh – 59,785/68,400 – 87.4 percent full
  • Tennessee @ LSU – 102,321/102,321 – 100 percent full
  • Tennessee @ Georgia – 92,746/92,746 – 100 percent full
  • Tennessee @ South Carolina – 77,559/77,559 – 100 percent full (announced)

In fact, when adding in Tennessee’s six home sellouts this year, the Vols have played in a sold-out stadium in nine of their 11 games so far this season. Tennessee sold out every home game except for the Thursday night opener against Ball State on Sept. 1.

  • Akron @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
  • Florida @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
  • Alabama @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
  • UT Martin @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
  • Kentucky @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full
  • Missouri @ Tennessee – 101,915 – 100 percent full

Vanderbilt will host AP No. 9 Tennessee this Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. in Nashville, Tennessee.

Oh, and for those with a good memory who are still wondering… there’s no news about the Checker Vanderbilt thing… but that may be obvious at this point.
