AB Announces Football Season Ticket Packages

PHILIPPI, W.Va. -- Alderson Broaddus has announced its football season ticket packages for the inaugural 2013 season with a five-game home slate awaiting Battlers fans this fall.

The home opener for the Battlers will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7 at noon against Pace University. Tickets are expected to sell out quickly, especially for this first game, as a stadium dedication will take place prior to kick-off. This inaugural game will also be televised on the local CBS station. An impressive list of pregame and postgame festivities is already being planned around this historic day to make the experience a memorable one for all fans.

Tickets will go on sale to the public May 1. General admission seats are $5 each or $25 for a season ticket package. These seats are located on the bottom deck of the home side as well as on the visitor side. These are bleacher seating.

The upper deck is located on the home side of the field and features chair-back seats. Reserved seats, located at each end of the upper deck, are $10 each or $50 for a season ticket package.

A limited number of seats are also being offered in the premium reserved section which is located at the center of the upper deck. These are $15 each or $75 for a season ticket package.

Parking for the games will be spread out across campus. All parking is first-come, first serve. Premium season ticket holders have the opportunity to purchase a VIP parking pass for the new lot located at the south end of the stadium for $5 per game or $25 for the season. These are limited. Parking will also be available around Rex Pyles Arena for $5.

A special tailgating lot will be set up at Jack Funk Field with room for RVs and larger vehicles. Several other areas around campus will be utilized on game days to handle all of the parking needs with members of the baseball team handling traffic duties. There will be no charge for parking with the exception of the VIP lot and around the Memorial Coliseum.

Handicapped parking will also be available on first-come, first-serve basis. Shuttles will be made available to transport fans from the parking areas to the stadium before game time and to return them to their cars after the game.
