How to Get Tickets for the 2024 Backyard Brawl



Pitt football

If you want to get your tickets for the 2024 Backyard Brawl between Pitt and West Virginia, you’re going to have to get creative.

Pitt announced Tuesday morning that no single-game tickets will go on sale to the public for the Brawl. Instead, tickets can be purchased as part of a mini-plan, season tickets or group tickets.

If you join the Panther Club, you will have access to the Panther Club pre-sale which will have individual tickets.

It’s not uncommon for marquee matchups to feature single-game tickets sold withheld from the public — sold closer to the event’s date and at a higher cost. It happened for the Backyard Brawl in Pittsburgh in 2022 and Morgantown last year.

The Pitt season ticket plans start at $175, and the mini-plan package of three home games starts at $65. The Pitt ticketing site does say that all single-game tickets, including WVU, will go on sale to Panther Club members and season ticket holders on July 25 at 10 a.m.

The 2024 Backyard Brawl will kick off at Acrisure Stadium on Sept. 14 at 3:30 p.m. ESPN or ESPN2 will broadcast the matchup, with further information coming at a later date.

West Virginia head coach Neal Brown is coming off the best season in his tenure with the Mountaineers and returns what should be a strong offense led by Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year dark horse Garrett Greene and a powerful rushing attack. WVU added from the transfer portal to bolster its defensive unit and should pick up from where it left off last season. The Mountaineers will be a tough matchup.

Pitt is 62-41-3 against West Virginia in a series that extends back to the 19th century. WVU is coming off a 17-6 win against the Panthers last season in Morgantown, a game in which the Panthers failed to continue a modest one-game win streak since the renewal of the Brawl.

The early game line for Pitt is the Backyard Brawl has set the Mountaineers as the favorite. West Virginia is favored by 4.5 points — with odds for either spread set at -110.
