JONESBORO, AR (ASU) – With less than two weeks until the much-anticipated home opener against Missouri at newly renovated Centennial Bank Stadium, Arkansas State Athletics has announced its 2015fan experience initiatives, which features themes and upgraded concessions for all fans.


The primary box office for ticketing needs, including Will Call, will be handled from the new west side International Tours Ticket Booth, which will open at 9:00 a.m. for the Missouri game and 10:00 a.m. for each remaining home game. Other ticketing booths around the stadium will open closer to game time, but will be point of sale only. Tickets purchased on the day of the game carry a surcharge of $3-4. Save time and money by purchasing season tickets or individual game tickets in advance.


A-State Athletics has partnered with Sodexo to offer new items at Centennial Bank Stadium this season. Fresh pretzels, Dippin’ Dots, pork brats and signature hot dogs and bratwursts are some of the many upgrades fans will see when the gates open to Centennial Bank Stadium on Sept. 12 when the Red Wolves take on Missouri.


A new photo booth will be available on the concourse for you and your family to remember your day at Centennial Bank Stadium. The photo booth will be available for all games except the Oct. 31 contest against Georgia State.
