PSU Thanking Fans for Support with Free Parking for Playoff Game

Updated:

PITTSBURG -- Playoff fever is hitting Gorilla fans throughout the country, as Pittsburg State University prepares to host its first post-season game since 2008. Fans lined up at the PSU ticket office early this morning in order to secure their seats for the Nov. 26 game, a sign of the intense passion fans have for their Gorillas.

"I'm fortunate to have been involved with NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports my entire career," said PSU Director of Athletics Jim Johnson. "I can truly say that our fan base is among the best in the nation, at any level. It's absolutely incredible. It means a great deal to our program, and more specifically to our student-athletes."

In a show of support for its fan base, Pittsburg State University will provide free parking for all tailgaters who wish to use the Gorilla parking lot adjacent to Carnie Smith Stadium on Nov. 26, as well as any other 2011 home playoff games.

"We wanted to do something to show our gratitude for the support our fans have given us this year, and also for the game-day changes they supported throughout the season," Johnson explained. "We've enjoyed sell-out crowds at nearly every one of our games, and we expect another one on Nov. 26. We may not know our opponent, but we're sure they'll be treated to Carnie Smith Stadium at its loudest and most festive."

Pittsburg State will host the winner of the first-round matchup between No. 3 seed Washburn and No. 6 seed Abilene Christian on Nov. 26 at Carnie Smith Stadium. Kickoff for the second-round action is set for 1 p.m. (CST).

Tickets for the post-season game are on sale now at the PSU Ticket office. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children and PSU Students (with I.D.) and $12 for PSU sky box holders. All tickets on game day will be $12. The first 200 PSU students who show their PSU I.D. at the ticket office will receive a complimentary ticket courtesy of PSU administration, which has purchased those tickets for students.

East gates will not be locked on Friday nights prior to playoff games for the Gorilla parking area (lot west of McPherson Hall). Both Gorilla and Crimson parking areas will remain accessible for those fans planning to get an early start on tailgating. Gold parking will continue to be reserved for those fans with gold parking passes. Gold gates will close at 10 p.m. Friday night and open at 7 a.m. on Saturday. Parking policies in place for the regular season will apply for gold parking during the post-season.

For additional ticket information, please call the PSU Ticket Office at (620) 235-4796 or the PSU Athletic Office at (620) 235-4389.
