JONESBORO (ASU) – The game times for Arkansas State's six home contests have been announced, including a 6:00 p.m. kickoff for its Homecoming game against North Texas on Oct. 29. A special ticket promotion has also been put in place for fans wishing to attend both the Red Wolves' Homecoming football game and men's basketball exhibition game on Oct. 29.
The men's basketball team will play their first of two exhibition games on Oct. 29 at 1:05 p.m. against Central Baptist, and anyone presenting an ASU-North Texas football game ticket will be able to purchase a ticket for the basketball game for just $2. Tickets for the Central Baptist game can be purchased at the Convocation Center ticket window on game day or in advance at the ticket office starting Oct. 10.
General admission men's basketball game tickets will be priced at $8 each, giving those who attend both A-State events on Oct. 29 and take advantage of the promotion a savings of $6 for per ticket. The combo value for both tickets is just $16.
"Homecoming will truly be a good time to be a Red Wolves' fan, as our fans get a chance to see a great football game and a preview of the 2011-12 men's basketball team," said ASU Assistant Athletic Director for Marketing and Promotions Gleen Hart. "This will add to all the other great events that go along with Homecoming 2011 and make it a great weekend."
