JONESBORO, Ark. (ASU) — The Arkansas State Athletics Department announced Monday it is extending the deadline to purchase 2013 football season tickets at their current promotional rates, which includes prices as low as $65, to April 19 due to high demand.
Beginning this year, fans can purchase a reserved benchback seat between the 40 yard lines on the east side of the stadium (section S) for $145 until April 19. Following the April 19 deadline, the season ticket price for the section will be $175. Fans wishing to purchase a seat in Section S can reserve those tickets at this time, and seating will be assigned starting with donors to the Red Wolves Foundation.
Also as part of the promotion, two reserved areas directly to the north of section S will be available for $75 until the new deadline as well. The season-ticket pricing for these two former general admission sections (Q and R) will then move to regular price at $115.
Additionally, visitor seating is moving to the east side of Liberty Bank Stadium to accommodate more Red Wolves fans on the west (press box) side. Season tickets for the upper and lower northwest sections (H and FF) are now available for the first time, and can be purchased for $65 until April 19. Following the new deadline, the ticket price will be moved to $115.
"We have received a great amount of positive feedback regarding the restructured seating in Liberty Bank Stadium," said Executive Director of the Red Wolves Foundation Carter Ford. "Because of popular demand, we have decided to extend the special rates on season tickets through April 19th. This will allow our fans an opportunity to join the many others who have already taken advantage of this special promotion. Considering the high-level football Coach Harsin and this team will bring, plus the electrifying atmosphere that will be present at Liberty Bank Stadium this fall, this may be the best deal in college football!"
Outside of the special promotions, other great season ticket options for chairback seating and general admission are available for the same price as last year. In the coming weeks, the Red Wolves Foundation will mail the 2013-14 donor guide that will include donation, tailgating and parking information for the 2013 football season.
The Red Wolves' 2013 home schedule features six home games, including contests against UAPB (Aug. 31), Troy (Sept. 12), Idaho (Oct. 12), Louisiana-Lafayette (Oct. 22 or 23), Texas State (Nov. 16) and Georgia State (Nov. 23). A-State has posted back-to-back Sun Belt Conference championships and 10-win seasons.
