Fan Appreciation Day, License to Howl set for Saturday

JONESBORO ( – The Arkansas State Football Fan Appreciation Day will be held in conjunction with the License to Howl promotion and student move-in day Saturday, Aug. 16.

Fans are invited to Centennial Bank Stadium as the Red Wolves hold their 17th practice of fall camp at 10 a.m., which will include a full-contact scrimmage. Posters and schedule cards will be available on the concourse of the stadium. There will be a gear sale on the concourse featuring authentic items of Red Wolves gear, including game-worn jerseys by former players, and concessions will be available throughout the practice. There will be opportunities for fans to receive face tattoos and the A-State band will also play throughout the practice.

License to Howl will run from 8 a.m.-9:30 a.m., and fans wishing to have a license plate attached to their vehicles need to enter the Centennial Bank Stadium parking lot from Alumni Boulevard. Athletics staff, coaches, student-athletes, Howl, Scarlet, and the A-State spirit squads will be in attendance to help bolt on licenses plates. Howl, Scarlet, and the A-State spirit squads will all be at the practice as well, and the Arkansas State cheer and dance teams will debut new routines.

"Fans will want to come to License to Howl to pick up the license plates because they will have A-State football's centennial season logo on them," Arkansas State Associate Athletics Director for External Relations Mickey Ryan said. "We encourage all fans to come by and pick up one of these collector license plates before they get a peek at Coach Anderson's fast, physical, and fun brand of football."

Season tickets for the 2014 campaign are on sale at the A-State Ticket Office, located at the Convocation Center's lower red entrance. The ticket office can also be contacted at 870-972-2781 and tickets may be purchased online at
