RICHARDSON, Texas (July 8, 2015) – Advance tickets have been sent to participating teams and are now on sale for the Lone Star Football Festival, which features three games in a single day on Saturday, September 19, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
A single ticket will be good for admission to all three games at the festival. The best place for fans to purchase tickets is in the athletic ticket office of each participating team. Advance purchases through the teams will be rewarded with rates of $25 for adults and $10 for students, while sales through Ticketmaster and game-day pricing at the AT&T Stadium ticket windows will be $30 for adults and $15 for students. Fans should check with their respective schools for details.
“Once again, we are excited to showcase our Lone Star Conference football student-athletes at AT&T Stadium, the greatest athletic venue in the country,” LSC commissioner Jay Poerner said. “With three games and five LSC teams participating, it’s going to be an incredible day of football. I encourage fans to purchase tickets in advance from their favorite teams to support our student-athletes and share in this great experience.”
The 2015 lineup includes two Lone Star Conference contests and one non-conference game. Midwestern State faces Eastern New Mexico, and Tarleton State goes against West Texas A&M in LSC action, while Angelo State plays Bacone in a non-conference contest.
The event starts at 11:30 a.m. with MSU-ENMU, followed by WT-TSU at 3:30 p.m., and ASU-Bacone at 7:30 p.m. to conclude the football-filled day.
The festival has attracted just over 99,000 fans for 20 games in its first four years, making it one of the best-attended football events in all of Division II. Sixteen of those 20 games have been televised, bringing extensive exposure to LSC member institutions and their football teams. The festival also has featured five NFL Draft picks and eight NCAA playoff teams, including the 2012 Division II National Champion Valdosta State.
