We had a chance to catch up with VCU Athletic Director Norwood Teague today, who was questioned on a variety of topics. Here are some highlights from that interview.
ON VERIZON WIRELESS ARENA CLUB SEAT PROJECT
“The construction in the Siegel Center is going fantastic. They’re really working day and night and on weekends to get it done for the first [game] of the year, but we’re on schedule. The first thing we have to have it ready for is a select-a-seat promotion where donors come in and see where they want to sit.
So, we’re doing well. It’s going to be an incredible addition to the arena and something we’re really proud of.
We get assured by the construction workers, hey, it doesn’t look like it will be ready, but it will be ready.
It’s amazing how much wiring they had to do in the ceiling for our video system for the basketball programs and just everything they had to do to get the computers wired and synched. Technology’s great, but it requires another step when it comes to construction.”
ON THE EXCITEMENT OF STARTING A NEW SEASON
“I’m thrilled that the response on the season ticket side has been as good as it has been. We have sold about 650 new season tickets, probably on the verge of 700, and that’s a dramatic pop for any program to have that many new season ticket holders.
The excitement is there. I hope expectations will be realistic when you lost four seniors who contributed heavily and we have a tough schedule. But our program is solid as a rock.”
