General Information

Please do not “tailgate” or bring outside food into the stadium. We have worked hard to offer good food with our concession stand and outside vendors at a reasonable price but rely on the sale of food as many of you do at your home stadiums to help fund our band. Thank you!

Spectator parking will be located behind Collins Intermediate School across from the stadium and will be clearly marked. Access to the parking lot is via Cecil Street. Handicap parking is available right in front of the stadium.

General admission tickets are $10. Free admission for children under five. Ticket sales are located at the general pass gate under the stadium and include a program.
