Northwestern State announces spring ticketing plan

NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State’s six-game spring football season will look much different for the Demons.

It will do the same for those who want to attend any or all of NSU’s three home games in the spring.

Fans who purchased season tickets ahead of Aug. 31, 2020, will be rewarded with complimentary upgraded VIP parking around Turpin Stadium for the three spring home games or may choose to receive a partial refund.

The Demons’ home slate begins March 6 against Nicholls (6 p.m.) and continues with the Homecoming matchup at 4 p.m. March 20 against McNeese. NSU wraps up its three-game home schedule with a 6 p.m. kickoff April 1 against Sam Houston.

“At long last, NSU football is close,” Assistant Athletic Director for Ticketing Operations and Special Events Mike Jacklich said. “There may be some changes to the way we conduct game day – spring games, electronic tickets, social distancing within the stadium, mask policies – but the action on the field will be the same hard-hitting football fans love.”

Capacity at Turpin Stadium will be limited to 4,000 spectators in accordance with current state COVID-19 protocols.

Those limits extend to the suite levels. There will be approximately 65 tickets available spread across the three suites on the stadium’s third level. Those will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis for Demons Unlimited Foundation donors with current donor levels taken into account for priority seating.

In addition to fans being required to wear a mask or face covering for entry and being asked to keep them on while in the stadium, except for when eating or drinking, there will be no on-field presentations in the spring, allowing for expanded use of the videoboard in the north end zone. Social distancing measures will be implemented in the seating areas as well.

There will be no traditional tailgating permitted before any of Northwestern State’s three home spring games. RV parking spots remain available and can be purchased by contacting the Northwestern State Athletics ticket office at 318-357-4268.

The spring also marks the debut of NSU’s partnership with StadiumDrop, which allows Demon fans the ability to purchase concessions items through an app on their phone and have the goods delivered directly to their seat.

Season-ticket packages for the three games at Turpin Stadium are available through the Northwestern State Athletics ticket office. A three-game chairback season ticket is available for $75 — $65 for senior citizens, military and NSU faculty/staff — while a general admission season ticket runs $40.
