Fans attending Northwestern State football home games this year, beginning with this Saturday’s matchup with Grambling at Turpin Stadium, have a quickly-accessible online location to enhance their game day experience.

The NSUDemons.com/footballgameday link is also easily found by clicking on the splash page on the NSUDemons.com website in the days leading up to each of NSU’s five home games this fall. It provides an A-to-Z summary of relevant information, along with directions to reach the stadium and a full list of items prohibited inside the stadium.

Fans are reminded umbrellas have been banned for over a decade at the stadium.

Following a two-day Homeland Security training session in May, NSU Athletics officials committed to beginning a bag check procedure for home football and basketball games, effective this season. Fans who bring bags and purses to the stadium will have them searched at entry gates by trained personnel, aiming to prevent weapons and other prohibited items from entering the facility.

A just-unveiled addition to NSU Athletics outreach is user friendly.

The newly designed Northwestern State athletics app is a mobile one-stop shop for everything Demons fans need to know about their teams. The free app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices, houses news, videos, schedules and in-app streaming for Northwestern State athletic events.

New Mobile App users who have streaming accounts via NSUDemons.com should be sure to log in to the app with the same username and password. Live In-app streaming will be available to all those with a streaming subscription.

With the #PurpleReign marketing theme for Saturday’s home opener, NSU fans are encouraged to wear purple. Posey’s Sports Center has a T-shirt/game ticket deal for $15 (or just $8 for a #PurpleReign T-shirt).

CP-Tel is the sponsor of an NSU faculty/staff free ticket promotion. Registration is required before Saturday at the NSU Athletic Ticket Office in the athletic fieldhouse, open 8-5 p.m. on weekdays.

Season tickets for Demon football remain on sale. Along with the Grambling game, NSU has four Southland Conference home dates, three against nationally-ranked foes from last season: Nicholls, Sam Houston State and McNeese.

The $115 chairback seat season ticket includes a season parking pass valued at $50.

A full range of prices and options are available at NSUTickets.com or by calling 318-357-4268.

Parking in the Turpin Stadium footprint around the south half of campus carries a $10 per game fee and is cash only. Paid parking begins at noon. Parking is free on the north side of campus.
