Franklin Pierce Announces Football’s Inaugural Season
Jan 1, 2020
The Franklin Pierce University Department of Athletics is pleased to formally announce ticket and gameday information for the football program’s inaugural season at the NCAA Division II level. Fans can view information regarding single-game tickets, season tickets, tailgate packages, gameday parking and the Club Hatch kids club all by visiting the brand new Gameday Information page.
Single game tickets will come at a cost of $10 for adults, while senior citizens (65 and older), Northeast-10 Conference students with a valid student ID and children (ages 12-18) will receive half-price admission at $5. Children under 12 years of age and Franklin Pierce students will be admitted free of charge.
Season tickets are priced such that fans will receive access to all six scheduled home games for the price of five. Adult season tickets can be purchased for $50 apiece, while season passes for children and seniors will be available for $25.
Single-game and season tickets are available for purchase online, with links to purchase pages available through the above-linked Ticket Information page.
Advance ticket sales will be cut off at the end of the day Thursday prior to the game, after which point they must be purchased at Sodexo Field on gameday. Gameday ticket sales will begin 90 minutes prior to kickoff.
Franklin Pierce is excited to announce the creation of an official tailgate area, Raven Row, which will be located in the upper DiGregorio parking lot (adjacent to the north end of Sodexo Field) and will operate in conjunction with the team’s six home games. Raven Row tents will be available to purchase for $125 per game, or $600 for the season. Each tent is 10 feet by 10 feet and will include two parking passes and four adult game tickets. Additional game tickets may be purchased as needed.
Access to Raven Row may also be purchased on a per-car basis, without the use of a tent. Parking spots in the tailgate lot may be purchased for $25 per game or $150 for the season. This tailgate parking option does not include game tickets, which must be purchased separately.
Like tickets, Raven Row packages are available for purchase online, with links to purchase pages available through the above-linked Tailgate Information page.
Advance sales for Raven Row will be cut off at the end of the day Thursday prior to the game, after which point packages must be purchased at Sodexo Field on gameday. Raven Row will open three hours prior to kickoff and remain open 30 minutes after the conclusion of play. Fans are advised to purchase tailgate options in advance, as space will be limited.
Please note: per the University’s Tailgate Policy, outside alcoholic beverages and charcoal grills will be prohibited. Propane grilling will be permitted.
In addition to the upper DiGregorio parking lot serving as the official tailgate lot, parking fees will be charged for access to the lower DiGregorio parking lot (adjacent to left field of the Pappas Field baseball complex) for those who desire immediate access to Sodexo Field. Parking in the lower DiGregorio lot will be $10, will be cash only, and will only be available for purchase on-site on gameday.
The University’s remaining faculty and staff parking lots will be available for parking on gameday, free of charge. A shuttle bus will be available to transport fans from the free parking lots to Sodexo Field as needed. A map of all parking areas is available at the above-linked Parking Information page.
Club Hatch Information
Franklin Pierce is excited to begin the second year of operation for its kids club, Club Hatch. Club Hatch membership is $10 for the year and open to all Ravens fans aged 12 and under. Benefits include a membership card, a newsletter from Rocky the Raven, gameday giveaways and invitations to special Athletics events. Club Hatch members will be eligible to receive a special birthday treat from Emma’s 321 in Rindge.
In addition, Club Hatch membership offers access to the Club Hatch Kids Zone, which will be located in the grassy area at the northeast corner of Sodexo Field, adjacent to the press box and concession stand, for all football games. The Club Hatch Kids Zone will provide entertainment and activities for kids club members throughout the game.
