The Southeastern Louisiana University Athletics Department will host two Football Select-A-Seat events in August at Strawberry Stadium announced Director of Athletics Frank Pergolizzi.

The events, which are designed to provide an opportunity for new season ticket holders to identify their seats prior to purchase, are scheduled for Thurs., August 4 from 5-7 p.m. and Sat., August 6 from 9-11 a.m.

“It (Select-A-Seat) is a great opportunity for fans to locate exactly where they want to sit for the upcoming season,” remarked Pergolizzi. “Fans will be able to easily identify exactly what seats are available and get a real look at the views they’ll have this fall. Following the selection, we’ll also be able to print their tickets for them on the spot.”

Tents will be set up inside and outside Strawberry Stadium for registration, payment and signup for the first-come, first-served events.

Fans will be able to either sit in the desired seat and a staffer will take the order or may pick the seat location from a seating chart at the designated seating chart table located in the tent area.

Fans are asked to enter from the Southwest gate located between Strawberry Stadium and the Dugas Center for Southeastern Athletics.

Music, concessions and door prizes will also be offered on each of the scheduled dates and information on purchasing single-game tickets for the Oct. 1 Tulane game at Tad Gormley Stadium will also be distributed.

In the event of inclement weather, the events will move indoors at Strawberry Stadium with operations emanating from the Billups Room located on the southwest corner of the Stadium.
