Lane Stadium Student Entrance Changes for 2022

Ahead of Virginia Tech Football's 2022 campaign, and in partnership with the Town of Blacksburg, Blacksburg Police and the Virginia Tech campus community, the Tech athletics department announced enhancements to the student experience on gamedays in Lane Stadium on Tuesday, Aug. 30. The Virginia Tech student body plays a critical role in creating the best atmosphere in college football and these changes have been made to thoughtfully improve the game day experience for all involved.

While Gate 7 will remain a student-only entrance, all students will be directed to a new point of entry into the stadium located on Washington Street between the Hahn Hurst Basketball Practice Center and the tennis courts. Whether coming from on campus or off campus, all students with tickets will begin their entry process into Lane Stadium underneath a 35-foot wide orange archway on Washington Street. This archway signifies the start of a walk toward the stadium that will feature any exclusive promotional giveaway items as well as bag check and ticket scanning stations.

Callaghan-Sheridan Way will be closed as a crossing point as that street will become part of the Lane Stadium footprint to improve in-stadium pedestrian traffic between the West stands and the East stands.

Wristbands for the North end zone will still be distributed outside of Gate 7. A wristband remains required to access the North end zone and are limited on a first-come, first-serve basis. Gates open two hours prior to kickoff.

Students without a wristband will be directed to the East stands. The footprint of the student section in the East stands has also been extended by one section to allow for more physical space and more student seating.

Additionally, in partnership with the University, there will be a new pregame experience available to students inside Hokie Village. Open three hours and 30 minutes prior to kickoff, this exclusive student tailgate will offer tailgate games, live music and more.

Lottery FAQ

Who can use the lottery?
Any full-time Virginia Tech student that has paid the athletic fee. Part-time students are eligible if they pay the optional athletic fee during the semester in which the lottery is being conducted and/or the game is played.

I’ve missed the lottery cut-off date, can I still sign up?
No. Once the lottery cut-off has passed, no additional students will be allowed into the lottery. However, if there are still tickets remaining after the lottery, all eligible students will be notified when and how to pick-up.

I’ve won the lottery, do I still need to print out the ticket and bring it to the game?
You can print the PDF or download your ticket to your Apple Wallet. You can also save the PDF ticket to your phone for scanning at the gate.

How do I sit with my friends?
Due to general admission seating, students who wish to sit together must enter the game together. There is no need to "group" order season tickets. That functionality is not needed with general admission seating.

I signed up for a game and now I can’t go, what should I do?

Once you've been assigned a ticket, it can not be returned. If you can not attend a game after you've already won the lottery, feel free to give your ticket to another student who would like to go. Any student with a valid Hokie Passport may use a student ticket. The name on a student ticket does not have to match the Hokie Passport used with the ticket.

How will I know when my ticket is ready?
You will get an email from the system once tickets for a game are posted and ready to be printed. If you miss the email, simply login to the lottery page to check your status, or print your ticket.
