JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Aug. 21, 2015) – The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics in conjunction with the ETSU Division of Student Affairs announced Friday plans, procedures and policies for students to access tickets to Buccaneer football games during the upcoming 2015 season.
The procedures strive to make tickets easily and readily available to students.
“Student attendance is critical to the success of the Bucs, and we look forward to a season of great game experiences,” said ETSU Vice President for Student Affairs Joe Sherlin. “We expect a loud and energetic student section will be backing our Bucs!”
According to the ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, multiple steps have been taken to make certain students have every opportunity to participate in football game days.
“Students are our No. 1 priority and our goal is to make it as easy as possible for them to obtain tickets for our football games this season,” said ETSU Senior Associate Athletic Director/COO Scott Carter. “The process we have developed gives students that opportunity to acquire their own ticket, while also providing a means to purchase companion tickets as well.”
