FAYETTEVILLE, NC - Perhaps the most appealing games on the Fayetteville State Broncos 2011 football schedule this season will be the ones right at home in Luther "Nick" Jeralds Stadium.
And now that Fayetteville State has released its 2011 football season ticket package, the Broncos' most faithful fans can reserve their place at those games as the Broncos prepare to make a run at their fourth CIAA Championship in the last nine years.
Fayetteville State is offering a wide variety of season ticket packages for the five home football games this season.
The Family Package includes general seating tickets for two adults and two children for $200, which gives the buyer a savings of $100. The Half Family Package costs $175 for the full season (a savings of $65), and can be purchased as one adult and two children tickets or two adults and one child tickets in general seating.
Fayetteville State also is offering the Reserve Adult Package of one ticket at $95 (a savings of $10), which would allow the buyer to watch the games from reserved seating at Jeralds Stadium. A General Adult Package is $80 (a savings of $10) and offers general admission seating to all of the games.
Children are identified between the ages of 4-17 and senior citizens are recognized as 60-and-above. For more information about ordering season tickets, contact Antoinette Fairley in the ticket office at (910) 672-1714 or visit www.fsubroncos.com for more information.
Fayetteville State is also offering a reserved package for active military, FSU faculty and staff and senior citizens at $75 (a savings of $30) and a general package for active military, FSU faculty and staff and senior citizens at $50 (a savings of $31). A payroll deduction is available to FSU faculty and staff. For more information, contact the ticket office.
Fayetteville State is also offering its tailgating season ticket package. Fans can reserve two parking spaces in the tailgating lot for the entire season at $125. Only 75 tailgating spots are available and are expected to sell quickly in advance of the Two Rivers Classic and Homecoming. For more information about ordering tailgating season tickets, contact Diane Porter at (910) 672-1314.
The season ticket packages each offer great values to the Broncos fan. A single game reserved adult ticket for the season-opening game against UNC Pembroke is $23, with general adult tickets going for $20 and for children, $15. While other home games offer single reserved adult tickets at $18, Homecoming against Shaw is $28, with premiums set for general tickets as well.
The Broncos will play five home games this season, kicking things off with the highly anticipated - and highly attended - Two Rivers Classic with UNC Pembroke. The game is the third in the series between the two rivals and returns to Fayetteville on Sept. 3 to begin the new season. In the teams' first meeting in 2009, UNC Pembroke won a double-overtime shootout.
Homecoming is scheduled for Oct. 15, and the Broncos will take on Shaw, the defending CIAA Champions. Watch as Fayetteville State - the only team in the last four years to wrestle a conference title away from the Bears - does battle against the team that was predicted to contend for the championship again in 2011. In addition to the annual in-game Homecoming festivities, fans will be able to witness two of the top CIAA programs match up in a critical late-season game.
On Oct. 8, the Broncos will host Virginia State in a game that will be televised on the Urban Sports Network. Be a part of the thrilling atmosphere under the lights and be seen as Fayetteville State takes on a team that is defending its Northern Division crown. A year ago, in one of their most impressive wins of the season, the Broncos traveled to Petersburg, VA, and handed the Trojans their only regular season CIAA loss.
In addition to those anticipated games, the Broncos will also host against Elizabeth City State on Sept. 17. The Vikings were selected by the CIAA Football Coaches Association as the favorite to win the Northern Division in 2011. Fayetteville State engaged in a spirited game with the Vikings a year ago, blocking two punts and returning them for touchdowns to go with a long pass play to nearly pull off a stunning comeback on the road.
On Oct. 1, Fayetteville State will host St. Augustine's. The Broncos nearly pulled off a stunning rally on the road a year ago in a shootout against the Falcons, who later represented the CIAA in winning the 2010 Pioneer Bowl.
