    The ticket prices very cheap when compared to what the big name schools (e.g. USC Trojans ($55) charge for general admission. If HBCU sports is to provide a quality products, the prices need to reflect it. If you charge low, you get a low quality product and vice versa. Given that many HBCU sports programs have been neglected by poor funding (e.g. A.D’s not schooled in marketing and sponsorship), we need to improve them through ticket prices, sponsorships, etc. After all, these tickets are still cheaper than going to the clubs, after parties, concerts that many HBCU students and alums, as well as some Black Americans spend lots of money without blinking an eye.
