2014-15 Student Ticket Information
Students, it’s that time of the year again. The highly anticipated 2014 football season is quickly approaching, and the team needs your support in Davis Wade Stadium this season.
This year, the Athletic Department has partnered with the Student Association to launch an all new online student ticketing program to make purchasing your season football tickets as easy as possible. Tickets will cost $50 and will be available for purchase via HailState.com/studenttickets.
Tickets will go on sale on August 20th at 8:00 a.m. for the general student population. For students who are Hail State Rewards members, you will be able to purchase tickets two days in advance, beginning August 18th at 8:00 a.m.
To take advantage of the early purchasing period, any student can join Hail State Rewards for free in advance of the on-sale date by visiting HailState.com/rewards. The deadline to register for HSR in order to gain purchasing priority is Noon on August 15th. Those who register after that date will have to wait until August 20th to purchase tickets.
In addition, this year a limited number of student guest tickets will be available for purchase for each game. Once you click to purchase your season tickets on HailState.com/studenttickets, you will then be directed to activate your official Dog Tag account. This will be the portal through which you purchase your football season tickets each year, transfer tickets to other students, or purchase guest tickets.
