RMU Home Opener vs. Pitt Sold Out

RMU Home Opener vs. Pitt Sold Out

Robert Morris’ home opener at the new UPMC Events Center against Pitt on Tuesday night will be in front of a capacity crowd.

RMU announced on Monday afternoon that the game between the Panthers and Colonials has sold out. UPMC Events Center opened in May and seats 4,000.

Robert Morris students were lined up at 2 a.m. on Monday in order to get free tickets.

The meeting will be the first between Robert Morris and Pitt since 2011. The teams have met 30 times in the past, with Pitt taking home 30 straight victories. All of the 30 previous games have been played on Pitt’s campus, either at Fitzgerald Field House or Petersen Events Center.

UPMC Events Center replaced Charles L. Sewall Center, which was located on the same piece of property in the front of campus and closed in 2017. That building held just over 3,000 fans, so Tuesday’s game will represent a new on-campus attendance record.

RMU spent two seasons without an arena, playing at PPG Paints Arena, Duquesne’s A.J. Palumbo Center and the North Athletic Center on campus in the interim.

Some tickets were still available on the secondary market as of Monday evening, with 10 tickets available on StubHub, starting at $75 each. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU, 93.7 The Fan and ESPN 970-AM and 106.3-FM.

I wonder if Pitt will be ready for this one. If not they are looking at 1-3 by the weeks end. RMU will be jacked up for this game.
