Northwestern State football season tickets go on sale to the general public today as the Demons rev up for the first season under new head coach Brad Laird.
The last day for season-ticket holders to repurchase their current seats is Friday.
Laird’s return has generated a new wave of excitement as football season ticket sales have increased 34 percent compared to June 2017.
“Folks have a unique opportunity Monday to snap up some fantastic seats for the upcoming football season,” said Mike Jacklich, assistant athletic director for ticketing and special events. “We’ll release all unpurchased season tickets — including available seats on or near the 50-yard line, aisle seats and seats that have been held for generations.
“It’s a great time for potential new season-ticket holders.”
After the Demons head to Texas A&M on Aug. 30 as part of the first slate of college football games, NSU opens its home schedule against Grambling on Sept. 8.
The Demons aim to sell every purple seat in Turpin Stadium when Grambling, the 2016 HBCU college football champions, come to town.
NSU’s five home games include Grambling (Sept. 8), Nicholls (Oct. 6), Sam Houston State (Sept. 13), Houston Baptist (Oct. 27) and McNeese (Nov. 10).
Three of NSU’s home opponents finished in the top half of the Southland Conference while Grambling claimed the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship.
