AUBURN—The 2010 Auburn football gameday experience will feature several improvements and enhancements in and around Jordan-Hare Stadium to benefit fans this season.
One of the most visible additions is the opening of the new Auburn Arena, where fans can tour the Lovelace Hall of Honor and view an interactive history of Auburn Athletics, shop at the Auburn Team Shop with officially licensed Auburn merchandise or purchase tickets at the ticket office's new location on the east side of the arena. Concessions and restrooms will also be open inside Auburn Arena.
The Auburn Will Call booth will be located at the Auburn Arena Ticket Office for the entire gameday in 2010, and the Ticket Office will be open for extended hours. Fans will be able to purchase single-game tickets, when available, at the Auburn Arena Ticket Office on gameday or at the Jordan-Hare Stadium West and East Ticket Booths.
"One of our five goals in the athletics department is to provide a first-class game day experience," said Scott Carr, Senior Associate A.D. for External Affairs. "We believe that the new Auburn Arena, along with several of the improvements in and around Jordan-Hare Stadium will assist not only Auburn fans, but our guests, to have the best gameday experience possible."
Inside Jordan-Hare Stadium, guests accessing the West Upper Level seating area will experience refurbished restrooms and concession stands, along with televisions installed at concessions.
Concessions stands experienced no price increases from last season and will offer more variety at select points of purchase inside the stadium.
Fans not only will have access to the new Auburn Team Shop located at the Auburn Arena, but will also find improved displays inside the stadium at merchandise stands.
Throughout the stadium, a more restrictive smoking policy has been put into place with designated smoking areas, while two additional exits added to the north side of the main concourse will allow for better postgame egress from the stadium and improve pedestrian traffic.
A new audio feature for Auburn football fans is Live Sports Radio, a device that will allow fans to listen to Auburn ISP Sports Network broadcasts from their seats both in Jordan-Hare Stadium as well as at the Tigers' road venues. The radios will be sold inside and outside of Jordan-Hare Stadium on gamedays and cost $20 each.
Visually, for the first time, Auburn fans were allowed to vote on the song for the Auburn football intro video shown on the HD videoboard prior to each game at Jordan-Hare. The song and video will be revealed during Saturday's opener against Arkansas State.
Fans traveling to the stadium via Tiger Transit will find new signage at the transit pickup/drop locations to help educate fans on what is prohibited at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
