LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Tech athletics department announced Monday that TTU fans wishing to park west of the United Spirit Arena throughout the 2010 football season may purchase season passes beginning April 27th and individual game passes beginning August 11th.
Fans have three options for passes in this area: Automobile area reserved, RV area reserved, and RV space reserved. Automobile passes will be $10 per game or $50 for the entire season. RV area passes are priced $75 per game or $375 for the season, while reserved spaces cost $125 per game or $625 for the season. Fans are encouraged to purchase the season parking pass as its pricing includes a one game discount.
"We are both thankful and excited about the continued support of our fans and the electrifying tailgating tradition we have surrounding gameday," said Assistant Athletics Director Amy McBride. "This opportunity is designed to improve everyone's experience by offering new areas for organized tailgating. Not to mention, fans may pre-order their passes and receive a one game discount by purchasing the season passes."
Parking attendants will direct automobiles and RVs with area passes into spaces upon arrival. Groups wishing to park near specific vehicles are recommended to arrive together to ensure they are parked in the same vicinity.
Tailgaters utilizing extra equipment such as cookers will require an additional pass with a maximum of two per vehicle. Citibus will continue to operate round-trip shuttles to and from Jones AT&T Stadium for $5 per person, beginning three hours prior to kickoff.
RVs may enter the lots on Friday after 5:30 p.m. and must depart no later than 10:00 a.m. Sunday. Automobiles may not arrive until 7:30 a.m. on gameday.
All passes may be purchased by calling the Texas Tech Ticket Office at 806-742-TECH or 1-888-GO-BIG-12, or by calling the Red Raider Club at 806-742-1196. Passes will also be on sale on the school's official web site, www.texastech.com, or in parking lots on gameday through credit cards only.
