    The Gameday Program for August 30, 2015 indicated that the Richardson web site would have information about putting a deposit down for 2016 tickets. I could not locate this. I am a present season ticket holder.
    Thank you.

      Terry,

      Thanks for your question, and apologies for the delayed response – we were experiencing technical difficulties with the website. Information regarding 2016 tickets can be found at gogaelsgo.com/Richardson.

    Am I correct in assuming that the design will still permit the alumni march around the field at homecoming?

      Hi Bruce,

      Thanks for your question. Athletics and Recreation is currently working with the Office of Advancement to discuss the potential logistics of the Homecoming parade in the revitalized stadium, as well as other ways of honouring our alumni on Homecoming weekend.
