Pitt State Changes Plans for Football Game Day Parking

Updated:

PITTSBURG — As the Gorillas prepare for the start of the 2011 football season, Pittsburg State University Athletics also continues to point toward the start of the athletic year, including the home opener against Emporia State on Sept. 10.

Season ticket holders who have paid for their tickets prior to Aug. 1 will be able to pick up their tickets beginning Monday, Aug. 15.  Tickets not paid for prior to Aug. 1 will become available in a timely fashion after the date payment is received.

Additionally, athletic director Jim Johnson announced today (July 27) that the school has amended its game day stadium and parking schedule.

The parking lots now will be accessible beginning at 6 a.m. on game day for patrons who wish to pay $5 to park in Gorilla Parking (i.e. Brown Lot) rather than the five-hour rule the school had originally planned.

"Based on feedback we received from our constituencies and continued discussions we have had as a staff and as an institution, we have adjusted the opening of parking lots to 6 a.m. for all five home games," Johnson said. "We think this will be a welcome change for our fans and it will alleviate potential bottle neck traffic which may have occurred under the previous plan."

Skyboxes also will be available for suite holders to access from 12 Noon to 7 p.m. on Fridays, the day before a home game.

The Gorillas football team reports to preseason camp Wednesday, Aug. 10. Pitt State will conduct its Autograph Day event on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 1 - 2:30 p.m. at Meadowbrook Mall where the team will hand out and autograph 2011 schedule posters.

The Gorillas open the 2011 campaign on Thursday, Sept. 1, at St. Joseph, Mo., against MIAA rival Missouri Western.
