JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Aug. 31, 2015) – The ETSU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics announced Monday that it has made arrangements to provide a limited number of “standing room only” tickets to the Buccaneers’ season opening football game on Thursday, Sept. 3 against Kennesaw State inside Kermit Tipton Stadium.

The 500 tickets will be made available during a planned pep rally on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at the site of the new on-campus football stadium, which is located in the parking lot just south of the Center for Physical Activity. While the bonfire pep rally is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., the ticket distribution will begin at 7.

The allotment of standing room tickets will be available at no charge to ETSU students, while the general public will have the option to purchase a ticket for $5 while they last. Due to the high demand for football tickets, fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets now for the remainder of the 2015 season and to make plans to purchase 2016 season tickets.

“It’s our goal to give our fans every opportunity to be at the home opener on Sept. 3,” said ETSU Senior Associate Athletic Director/COO Scott Carter. “These standing room tickets will only be available for our games in which no regular seating is available and a traditional sellout has been declared.”
