More than a week after tickets went on sale for Cortaca Jug 2019 in MetLife stadium, SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College are already more than halfway toward setting a new national attendance record for a Division III football game.
The game is known as the “biggest little game in the nation.”
Almost 20,000 tickets have been bought through Ticketmaster.
SUNY Cortland says that number does not include the 5,000 tickets being held back for each school to sell on campus to students, faculty and staff next fall.
The current all-time Division III attendance record is 37,355.
Marc Hudak, Chairman of the NYC Chapter of the National Football Foundation, said, “We are thrilled to see such a strong start to ticket sales for the 2019 Cortaca Jug game.”
