New Ticket Policy
A new football ticket policy for Sam Houston State Faculty-Staff and
Students will be in effect for the 2000 season which kicks off Thursday,
Sept. 7, at Bowers Stadium.
For Home Football Games
All Sam Houston State Faculty-Staff and Students must have a ticket to
be admitted each game. The tickets are free and will be issued on game
day upon presentation of an SHSU ID at Gate 1-A at the tent located
under the scoreboard at the north end of Bowers Stadium.
Another change this year is that the Sam Houston State Bearkat Marching
Band will sit on the west (press box) side of Bowers Stadium in Section
When SHSU Faculty-Staff and Students pick up their free ticket each game
day, they will have two seating choices. They may redeem a reserved seat
on the West Side in Section G or the upper part of Section H or a
general admission ticket for a seat on the East Side. Only one ticket
will be issued per SHSU ID. West Side seating is contingent upon
availability at game time.
SHSU Faculty-Staff Family Athletic Activity Passes which will admit all
members of the faculty-staff member's immediate family into all SHSU
regular season athletic events (football, volleyball, basketball,
baseball, softball, and track) are available at the SHSU Athletic
Department for just $30.
Sam Houston State will play five home football games during the 2000
season. Games are Thursday, Sept. 7 Southeastern Oklahoma State, 7 p.m.;
Saturday, Sept. 23 Texas A&M-Kingsville (Parents' Weekend), 7 p.m.;
Saturday, Oct. 21 Troy State, 7 p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 28 McNeese State
(Homecoming), 2 p.m.; and Saturday, Nov. 18 Southwest Texas
(Letterwinners' Day), 2 p.m.
