Arkansas State Athletics announced Tuesday a change in its game day parking procedure to enhance Red Wolves fans' tailgating experience.
The revisions that have been made will allow fans to have access to the "black" parking lot up to four hours prior to kickoff on the day of the game. Vehicles that are left in the "black" lot without a proper parking permit will be towed at the owners expense if they are not moved prior to four hours before the scheduled kickoff.
"Following the Memphis game, the athletics department discussed how to make tailgating in this area more convenient for ASU fans," said Carter Ford, Assistant Athletics Director for Football Operations. "We want everyone in attendance to have the best fan experience possible."
The "black" parking lot can be easily accessed by turning onto Alumni Boulevard from Stadium Drive and proceeding into the "red" parking lot south of Liberty Bank Stadium. Ushers will direct fans to the entrance of the lot at that point.
"Tailgating outside Liberty Bank Stadium is growing rapidly," said Ford. "We want to provide ASU fans a great atmosphere outside the stadium which will translate into the best overall fan experience for student-athletes, coaches and fans in attendance."
The Red Wolves will be back in action at home at 6 p.m., Saturday, September 22 against Alcorn State. The Red Wolf Walk will begin at 3:45 p.m. in Tailgate City. The Red Wolf Walk provides fans an opportunity to cheer on the coaches and student-athletes as they enter the stadium on game day.
