LU fans have opportunity to buy seat of choice for 2015 season

SPECIAL TO THE LEADER

BEAUMONT, Texas – Season tickets are now on sale through the Lamar Ticket
Office, and Friday the Lamar athletics department is providing Cardinals
fans a special opportunity to select the seats they want at the annual
Choose Your Seat Day. The Lamar ticket office, along with Provost Umphrey
Stadium, will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. giving fans an opportunity to
see the seat they would like to purchase. Fans will have the opportunity to
view the available seats before making a purchase.

“This is a great opportunity for fans to stop by and select the seats they
want for the season,” said Director of Athletics Jason Henderson. “Not only
will every fan have the opportunity to view the stadium from their seats,
but it adds a little extra excitement for the upcoming season. This is not
just an avenue for fans to get their season tickets. It also gives us the
opportunity to show off our facility as well. Provost Umphrey Stadium
provides a great gameday atmosphere and we want our fans to have the ability
to take part in that experience.”

Ticket office staff will be on hand to take fans into the stadium to view
all available seating and select the seats of their choice. Season tickets
range in price from $38 for general admission all the way up to $312 for
chair back seating. By purchasing season tickets, fans will receive a
30-percent discount compared to buying single-game tickets.

The Cardinals enter the 2015 campaign looking to build from a record-setting
2014 season that saw them tie the school record for wins in the season. LU
kicks off the 2015 schedule Saturday, Sept. 5 against Bacone College. The
game against Bacone is one of just five home games for Big Red this year.

The Lamar Ticket Office is open every Monday through Friday beginning at 8
a.m., and can be reached by phone at (409) 880-1715.
