The Northwestern State athletic department has partnered with the Aspire Group in advance of the Demons’ Sept. 8 home football opener against Grambling.

The Aspire Group is a sports and entertainment marketing firm recognized around the world for its work in consulting, ticketing and partnership services. It will work in conjunction with the Northwestern State Athletic Ticket Office to sell tickets for the Demons’ home opener.

“Aspire has partnered with us to use a team of their best phone operatives to contact area alumni, lapsed season-ticket holders and others who have purchased tickets from us in the past to fill the purple chairback seats on Sept. 8,” NSU Assistant Athletic Director for Ticketing and Special Events Mike Jacklich said. “We are anticipating the best crowd we have had in the better part of a decade for our opener and our partnership with Aspire is a big reason why.”

While seats remain available for Grambling’s first visit to Natchitoches since 2008, Jacklich urged fans not to wait to purchase their seats.

Chairback seats on the west side of Turpin Stadium are available for $25 per game or for $115 for the entire five-game home season. The NSU ticket office also has general admission season tickets ($60) and VIP suite packages ($630) available for the season.

Following the home opener against Grambling, Northwestern State has four additional home games – Oct. 6 vs. Nicholls, Oct. 13 vs. Sam Houston State, Oct. 27 vs. Houston Baptist (Homecoming) and Nov. 10 vs. McNeese.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.NSUtickets.com or by contacting the NSU athletic ticket office at (318) 357-4268 or visiting the office in person inside the NSU Fieldhouse.
