Tulane Athletics announced today the public launch of season tickets for the 2014 football season, the Green Wave's inaugural season at the new Yulman Stadium and as a member of the American Athletic Conference (AAC). The Green Wave will play six home games at its new on-campus facility this season.
Fans can purchase tickets online at www.YulmanStadium.com, or visit the Tulane Team Shop Ticket Office in the Wilson Center, which is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., or call 504-861-WAVE (9283).
Tulane and the Peter Mayer Advertising Agency have partnered for the "Let's Make Waves" campaign to enhance ticket sale efforts with an extensive television, radio and billboard campaign. This campaign also kicked off with Tuesday's announcement.
"It has been 40 years since college football was last played on Tulane's uptown campus and we are excited to end its absence during the upcoming 2014 season," Tulane Director of Athletics Rick Dickson said. "It's my great pleasure to invite all New Orleanians, and Tulanians from around the nation, back to campus this fall as we open Yulman Stadium and bring the Green Wave home to campus. The 2014 season will also mark the start of a new era for Tulane football with its first season as member of the American Athletic Conference.
"We have many comfortable seats with great sight lines for everyone. Tailgating and connecting with new and old friends, all on the beautiful setting of Tulane's campus, once again becomes an integral part of the fan experience. I encourage everyone to purchase season tickets today to make this as unique and special a game day atmosphere as anywhere in the country."
The Jill H. and Avram A. Glazer Family Club and the Westfeldt Terrace sections are located on the east side of the stadium and both remain on sale. Both require a five year commitment. For more information on these areas, please call (504) 314-CLUB (2582).
Additional premium areas on both the east and west side of Yulman Stadium are now available ($200-$250 per ticket), with differing levels of amenities. Non-premium sections ($200/ticket) will be located on the west side and the north end zone of Yulman Stadium. The reserved seating area is available to all season ticket holders for donors and non-donors for the upcoming Tulane Football season.
The north end zone will feature a Family Fun Zone ($300 package of 2 adult/2 youth tickets) and a Young Alumni section ($100 per ticket). All 2014 season ticket holders will have the option to commit to 3 or 5 year terms to guarantee 2014 ticket prices and donation (if section requires).
All ticket orders and Tulane Athletic Fund donations made by May 15, 2014 will have priority on seat selections. Seating will be based upon Loyalty Point totals (minimum $75 annual gift to activate points). Seating will take place in July. All 2013 season ticket holders, and those who took part in the reserve your seat campaign, are guaranteed seats in Yulman Stadium if ordered by May 15.
Tulane is committed to making game day an enjoyable experience. Newcomb and Lavin-Bernick Center Quads have been designated as the official tailgating area for campus. There will be live entertainment, a family fun zone, area for students and campus groups, reserved tents and open space for first come, first served tailgating.
Tulane is in the process of finalizing agreements with off-campus parking lots/garages. There will be a sufficient number of parking spaces located on campus, within walking distance of campus, and additional lots/garages that are being secured which Tulane will run shuttles to and from. Some parking options will be based upon current annual giving level to the Tulane Athletics Fund (TAF). Details are being finalized and will be shared prior to seat selections and final TAF commitment for the 2014 football season.
