MORGANTOWN –Due to the ongoing developments related to COVID-19, the West Virginia University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is extending the priority ticket request deadline for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game to May 1.

“As we continue to monitor the ongoing developments related to COVID-19, we are keeping the health and well-being of all our fans in mind,” WVU Director of Athletics Shane Lyons said. “Given that, we are extending the priority ticket request deadline for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game to allow our fans more flexibility as we navigate these trying times together.”

West Virginia and Florida State will open the 2020 season in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Sept. 5, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Mountaineer Athletic Club (MAC) members for 2019 and 2020 and 2019 football season ticket holders still have the first opportunity to request tickets to be seated in WVU’s allotment through the Mountaineer Ticket Office.

MAC members and season ticket holders can continue to log in to their online account at WVUGAME.com to request priority tickets to the game.

A priority ticket request paper form also was mailed to those patrons in mid-January and can be returned directly to the Mountaineer Ticket Office using the business reply envelope included in this mailing.

Credit cards will only be the only accepted form of payment. Credit cards will not be charged until after the new deadline of May 1.
