Duke Sells Out Season Ticket Allotment

With the 2010 football season just over a week away, Duke has sold out its allotment of season tickets at Wallace Wade Stadium.

While it is unclear the last time that Duke sold out all of its season tickets, it is clear that it has been at least a decade.

"I think it's huge, for the momentum it's building for this program, for Coach Cutcliffe, the players, for being more recognizable," said Boo Corrigan, Duke's senior associate athletic director for external affairs.

While Robbi Pickeral of the Raleigh News and Observer speculates that this run on tickets can be attributed mainly to the high-profile matchup with defending national champion Alabama on September 18th, enthusiasm for Blue Devil football is certainly at an all time-high as the third year of the David Cutcliffe Era begins.

In fact, when the Crimson Tide roll into town, there will be an extra 3,900 seats put into the end zone and concourses, which will increase Wallace Wade's capacity to 37,841. It will be interesting to see if there is more crimson or blue in the stadium on the 18th, as the game in Durham represents the only chance for many Tide fans to see their team this year.

With single game tickets still available for all other home matchups, those in Duke athletics hope the Blue Devils performance on the field will lead to subsequent sellouts.
