Students must attend one of two events to claim tickets for football game against MSU
Two thousand more seats are being allotted to the student section to accommodate the high demand of people wanting to attend the Central Michigan football game against Michigan State Sept. 8.
Students will still be able to get in free of charge as usual, but have to go to one of two events at the end of August to load the ticket on a valid CMU ID.
Students will have to go to either MAINstage on Aug. 26 or the first football game Aug. 30 against Southeast Missouri State.
The ticket loading system will only be in effect for the MSU game. For all other games, students will just need to bring a student ID at the gates.
“We saw a growing demand, and we are thrilled that we can accommodate our student body’s interest with the additional seats,” Athletics Director Dave Heeke said. “They are such an important part of our atmosphere. Based on the feedback we’ve heard, we expect the tickets to go extremely fast.”
The 2,000 additional seats will bump the student section size to 10,000 students. It will make one-third of the total capacity at Kelly/Shorts Stadium.
A committee of campus student leaders came together to finalize how ticketing procedures would go for the game.
“We wanted to come up with a fair system for all CMU students who will be enrolled next semester, and we worked consciously as a group of students to do the right thing,” Detroit junior and committee member Darryl Maxwell said. “It has all come together and I am very happy with everything.”
